Benedicta Gafah

Some are with the view that, becoming a star in Ghana is no difficult task. Others also carry their opinion which says, using your talent to become a star, is a difficult journey to start.

A handful carries the thoughts that, with women, the unbelievable is done to become great.

The controversial Kumawood actress, Benedicta Gafah took to her Instagram page to make her fans know what she has always wanted growing up.

Well, the actress confessed to have done several funny stuff in her quest to become a model of high repute.

Like every Ghanaian girl who wants to become a model by all means, the actress confessed to have starved herself in her quest to become what she wanted to be.

She further indicated that, she hated herself very much because whatever she did, her body size could not change and her dream of becoming the next biggest thing to happen to modelling looked far from reach.

But she never gave up hope but worked towards greatness.


This is what she posted on Instagram:

“Growing up I always wanted to be a model, so much so that I literally used to starve in order to lose weight. I wanted to be a size 8 at all cost and I went to great lengths in a bid to achieve that dream. I hated myself so much, especially my plumpy body. There were many times I felt my body was just being “stubborn” and preventing me from becoming great😫😫😫. But I eventually had to accept myself and the fact that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and forms. And that one could be size 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and so on and still look beautiful, especially when it is coupled with a beautiful heart and a positive mindset.

Your pretty face and beautiful body could easily attract people to you but your good heart and character will endear you to people and allow them to enjoy your company,
At one point in time or the other, we may feel a bit insecure about certain things in our life or certain parts of our body but guess what, that is what makes us all unique and beautiful in our own special way. We are created in the image and likeness of God So be beautiful; be you!”.
