Call them 'plus size', you are on point. Describe them as 'big, strong and reliable' like a bank's slogan, you will never be prosecuted for that. In the African parlance, they are referred to as 'big madam'.

In the entertainment industry in Nigeria, we can only boast of few plus 12 Nigerian female stars just like the American Moniques and Queen Lateefats. Here are some Nigeria's 'big, strong and reliable' celebrities in the showbiz industry.

Ronke Oshodi Oke
Ronke is a known fish in the Yoruba movie industry. For her, playing comic character is gradually becoming her best belt. She is one of the few 'big, strong and reliable' stars in the showbiz industry in Nigeria. Her natural frontal endowment, which gave birth to her 'Oshodi Oke' suffix to her name, has made most people forget that her real name is Ronke Ojo. In the acting world, she is not new as she has also paid her dues.

Foluke Daramola
When the role-call of Yoruba actresses that are well educated are called, Foluke Daramola's name would not be missing just as she would anyday anytime make the list of 'plus size' celebs in Nigeria. Unlike Ronke who is not a good dresser, Foluke knows what to wear at the right time. One thing Foluke may lack may be her being scarce at most showbiz events. She is even now of a social activist than an actress she is known for.

Lepacious Bose
A mention of her name without her picture may give the impression that Ogunboye Bose better known as Lepacious Bose is the 'lepa' type of a lady. But a picture of her shows otherwise. For Bose, comedy has made her become a public figure and an avenue to give hope to the plus 12 in the society. One funny thing about her is that she crack jokes with herself, which make people laugh.

Damilola Adekoya popularly known as Princess is one of the top comedians in Nigeria. While a student at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), her love for comedy was already known. She qualifies to be in the list of Nigeria's top 'big, bold and beautiful' entertainers. She is also largely endowed both in the frontal and backside of her body. She is absolutely endowed just like the Kokomaster, D'Banj puts it.

Eniola Badmus
This list wil definitely be incomplete if the name of Eniola Badmus well known as 'Wuule' (meaning 'fill the house') is not included. Gbogbo Bigs Girlz, as Eniola is fondly called by both friends and fans in the Yoruba film industry, is one the 'plus size' celebrities Nigeria can boast of any day, anytime. Her acting prowess is never in doubt as she delivers her movie role well.
