Nollywood actress Eniola Badmus has expressed gratitude after the Lagos state waste management agency (Lawma) awarded her an endorsement deal weeks after turning up at the 2021 Headies in an orange jumpsuit.
Akelicious recalls the 43-year-old actress was mocked over her choice of outfit to the 2021 Headies Award, with fans insinuating she looked like a LAWMA staff.
Barely two months after the social outcry her dress caused, the plus sized actress thanked the MD of LAWMA for the recognition to serve Lagos State and turning her shame to fame.
Sharing photos from the endorsement deal ceremony on her social media handle, Eniola Badmus captioned the photos:
”About 2 months ago, I was at the prestigious headies award show, heel high on the yellow carpet and wearing what I believe is still one of the best outfits.
Alas, the internet went agog speculating on my choice of outfit but really, I love my fans and I believe that commentary is from the place of love. Some specifically mentioned that I look like a LAWMA staff on the street.
However, those assertions have morphed into an untold success. Today I am a proud ambassador of Lagos State Waste Management Agency (LAWMA) @lawma_gov primarily to lead in adding value to the Lagos state environmental agenda through my talent and platform.
