Nigerian singer, Waje has expressed how she felt when some fans on social media likened her to a DSTV remote control.
According to her, their comments brought her back to the reality of how she really looks after years of being deceived by social media that she looks great.
She said: “I never used to think that I was good looking. I needed validation, so when social media came, it was a no-brainer, great pictures, comments, I felt like I had hit a jackpot.
“Then the bubble burst and I realise that some people follow you just to point out everything wrong with you They hated my performance, I was fat shamed. Someone actually said I looked like a DSTV remote control
“I cried and if you passed outside my hotel room that day, you would think somebody had died. People were wondering what was going on. I screamed at everybody, yelled at my manager. My boyfriend at that time tried to persuade me. I remembered he broke up with me later because I was becoming this angry lady.
“The summary of my story is I allowed social media take a hold of me. I trusted it to give me something it had no ability to offer”.
