Monalisa Stephen, a Nigerian actress, shared a heartfelt video on Instagram to dispel the belief that she is the victim of body-shamers.
Online trolls have repeatedly urged the plus-sized actress to go to the gym and lose weight.
However, Monalisa Stephen recently revealed in an Instagram post that she has juvenile diabetes and that she spends 23 hours a day taking care of her health.
The video’s caption reads;
“Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always
I have been taking care of my health since 10. Trust me you don’t know what I have been through.
For anyone like me. You’re Not Alone“
Reacting, one of the fans said: “Thank God you’re putting up a smile that’s where your inner strength lies… be happy always despite all odds.”
