  • It’s easier and cheaper to just photoshop more inches onto your hips than it is to go under the knife.

They are sexy …

When you are in the spotlight where your livelihood largely depends on selling a perfectly packaged image to a, sometimes, gullible public, it’s no surprise that you’ll want to present the best possible version of yourself at all times.

But does that necessarily have to involve selling a barefaced lie? Tiwa Savage and Oge Okoye seem to think so.

… photoshop sexy

International celebrities – everyone from Beyonce to Mariah CareyKim KardashianBritney Spears and Lady Gaga have at one time or the other enlisted the help of Photoshop to alter or improve their appearances.

And for every time they’ve failed at it, they have been severely dragged on the internet for it.

Another subtle fail

The backlash their international counterparts have received in the past is however neither discouraging our local celebrities from hopping on the digital nip and tuck trend, nor teaching them to do better.

Maybe they simply assume that the people down here are not smart enough to detect the bent railings as in the case of Tiwa or the curved gate as in the case of Oge.

Or maybe they simply don’t care.

Easy with the bend, ma

Granted, it’s easier and cheaper to just photoshop the potbelly away or edit a couple more inches onto your hips than it is to go through rigorous workout routines or worse still go under the knife.

We’ve seen those railings before, and not bent

And if I’m being fair, I do sympathise with them. It can’t be easy being in the spotlight where people notice and judge every ounce of fat and every strand of hair that is out of place.

But from where I stand, it is far more honourable and dignifying to live your truth – be that a flat butt or a flabby waistline – than it is to flaunt a lie and worse still be caught at it. *Cringe*
