Teni shocked many with her transformation towards the last quarter of 2022, prompting an appreciation video of herself on the new year.
The singer emphasized her reason for losing weight; one which centred around being conscious of the health implications.
This triggered Monalisa Stephen’s advocacy for body positivity and how Teni’s song was a slap on what she stands for.
“For all y’all celeb who we supported because you’re fat and flourishing. But after you gain the fanbase and lose weight which is not the problem.
Lose weight in peace Don’t be fat phobic now and say “I remember when I was fat. Fat na bad thing. But you gain sympathy and support from the fat community to get there. Be nice. Fat no be disease Shut up already and lose your weight in peace.”
In reaction, Teni wrote in a tweet, “I ain’t going back and forth with no dumb Monalisa, that ain’t who Lojay sang about.”
