Lerato Kganyago Opens Up on Her Weight Struggles


Live Amp presenter Lerato Kganyago has opened up about her struggle with weight. The TV personality described it as a rollercoaster ride in an interview with DJ Fresh.

She said, “Initially in my 20s, I think mid-20s I started taking medication to pick up more weight because I was really really skinny, and I wanted to have hips and a little bit of a behind. And it wasn’t happening. Then in my late 20, I started picking up weight and I was happy but then I started picking up too much weight, then I wasn’t happy,”

She also revealed she didn’t like her body after a shoot with True Love magazine that went viral. “Especially after the shoot that I did with True Love, I became a bit uncomfortable with my body. People knew the skinny Lerato with no cellulite then the cover thing happened. I was a bit more concerned, I was worried, was I getting too big? But I worked really hard, not only to get my body back but also my confidence. Now I am comfortable with the fact that I am not the skinny Lerato anymore, I have cellulite, I have dimples, and that is okay. I’ve got an African body, which is normal,” she adds
