Nollywood plus size actress, Eniola Badmus has hit back at critics after she was announced as the new face of the Lagos State Waste Management Authority.
The development is coming two months after her evening outfit was likened to LAWMA workers’ garments at the headies award ceremony.
Taking to her official Instagram account at the weekend, the excited 43-year-old broke the news of her appointment to her followers.
“About 2 months ago, I was at the prestigious headies award show, heel high on the yellow carpet and wearing what I believe is still one of the best outfits.
“Alas, the internet went agog speculating on my choice of outfit but really, I love my fans and I believe that commentary is from the place of love. Some specifically mentioned that I look like a LAWMA staff on the street,” she said.
Although the ‘Omo Ghetto’ actress said that she felt the weight of the scathing remark, she could do little or nothing about it.
She was, however, elated to announce that the insults she received had metamorphosed into a success story for her.
“However, those assertions have morphed into an untold success. Today I am a proud ambassador of Lagos State Waste Management Agency (LAWMA) @lawma_gov primarily to lead in adding value to the Lagos state environmental agenda through my talent and platform.
“I am particularly grateful to the Lagos State government and particularly LAWMA management for this unique opportunity and to my fans, please let’s work together in making Lagos the best city. Now is the Time!
Miss Petite Naija reported that with her recent appointment, Badmus has teamed up with a league of other seasoned celebs such as Foluke Daramola, Woli Arole, Bolanle Ninalowo and Tobi Bakre, who have so far been appointed as LAWMA ambassadors last year.
