Eniola Badmus’ weight loss
Actress Eniola Badmus, formerly known for her generous body size, created a buzz on social media when she debuted a new trim look in celebration of her twentieth year on stage in 2021. It was later learnt that her weight loss journey began when she signed an endorsement deal with a waist-trainer company called “Deshapeables.”
Speaking about her dramatic weight loss, Eniola Badmus said:
In terms of my look, a lot has changed due to a decision I made. With the pressure and stigma that I have gone through, I want to change that. So I want to surprise everyone and help myself.
The actress also said the major inspiration for her decision to lose weight came from the stigma she received from other people.
What I can say is it got to a point I could not control what I ate anymore. I eat anything, so far it is edible. So from there, I knew something fishy was going on. So far I have lost thirty-three kilograms.

Eniola Badmus’ giveaway scandal
Eniola Badmus was heavily criticized on social media in April 2020 after it was revealed that she had demanded a N150K fee from a man wanting to sponsor a N500K cash giveaway through her page. According to reports, the giveaway had been intended to help poor Nigerians suffering due to the coronavirus lockdown order.
The giveaway sponsor, a US-based man named Pius Omoyele, had called Eniola Badmus out on social media over the demand which led to the actress being “dragged” by angry netizens.
The actress later took to her Instagram page to state that Omoyele was not being completely truthful. She insisted that she only asked for a fee to pay for the bank charges she would incur while dispensing the cash gifts.
“This incident has nothing to do with taking advantage of people or discouraging the need to give out especially using my platform. This particular person indicated interest to do a five hundred thousand naira giveaway and I felt that there would be extra cost for bank charges and stamp duty, which I was not going to bear the transfer charges for so I asked him to bear it. Meanwhile, I posted the giveaway on my page and he has been enjoying the game because he insisted that I put his handle. But in scenarios where people engage you as an influencer to drive giveaways from a business point of view, then business conversations need to happen.”
