Part of her post reads: "It is very disheartening that in Africa, where women are naturally curvaceous, we continue to discriminate against them. At the just concluded Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) award show, not one plus-size woman made it to the best dressed list. Is style and best dressed list the preserve of only slim/ skinny women? We have to do better."

The recently concluded show witnessed a lot of Nigerian celebrities making attention-grabbing appearances on the red carpet, all thanks to the creative stylists and glam teams behind their looks.
So good looking was the outfit of former Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) housemates that they managed to snag the awards for the best dressed male and female respectively.
However, celebrity stylist Toyin Lawani did not think they deserved it, and after she made her opinion public, fellow stylist, Swanky Jerry, was quick to drag her through the mud for her comments.
Jerry in a couple of posts that have now been deleted on his official Instagram page wondered how Lawani could have effortlessly downplayed the hard work of designers that worked tirelessly to create pieces for their celebrity clients.
