Lose Weight & Wear A Weave For Who?

Lose Weight & Wear A Weave For Who?

Working in the entertainment industry can lead you to lose yourself in this fickle environment.

We've seen many entertainers change into people they're not, all in the name of entertainment and getting money.

However, individuals who are strong in their beliefs and know who they are hardly fall into this trap and one of those people is Unathi.

The media personality has been in the entertainment business for 18-years and has had her fair share of drama when it comes to dealing with people in this industry.

The 40-year-old Idols judge recently opened up about how she was told to change her look by Executives she used to work with a few years ago.

At the time that was her first entertainment job she had received and hence she was taken aback at what was requested of her.

“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," she said in part.

Thank goodness Unathi stood her ground, she's a prime example of how you should never comprise who you are, no matter how cushy your job may be.

Thank you sis' Unathi for reminding us of the importance of valuing ourselves
