Local singer and TV personality, Unathi Nkayi, reminisces on how at the beginning of her career she was told she looks a bit harsh and must lose weight and consider wearing a weave.
“I remember being sat down by the whole production and everybody on the team, everybody saying to me, Unathi your look is a bit harsh and you are a bit thick, so we are wondering if you would ever consider wearing a weave and a wig and just losing some weight".
The Idols judge says she said NO! because she is educated and knew who she was.
“I said No, because I knew who I was and I was educated and if that’s the kind of woman you are looking for I am not the one, go find your weave girl and go find your skinny bilinky”.
Unathi says this is why she still keeps it natural and does squats every day!
She added that she’s glad she did not change her image for people who did not appreciate her.
