- Anne hasn't had it easy with life since she noticed her rapid body development from the young age of 16
- She has escaped being taken advantage of on two occasions
- In an exclusive interview with Legit.ng , she narrates her struggles through life, experiences and aspirations
Ogbe Anne Roli was born without any difficulty like every other Nigerian child and had dreams she hoped to achieve when she came of age.
At the age of 16, she experienced puberty, howbeit on an unusual level. This is because she formed big mammary glands, but*tocks and hips that betrayed her teenage age.
She said due to her so pronounced body physique, people thought she was 23 when she was only 16.
Her curves stood her out from her secondary school peers and drew her unnecessary attention. The native of Warri South in Delta state said she took to avoiding public places and staying indoors.

Her challenges continued until she gained admission into university as she gets stares and compliments about her body that make her shy.
"When I walk past people, their compliments make me feel shy and uncomfortable... Compliments like your a*ss is big.... God was partial in creating you... If any man has you on bed he'd be very lucky..."
Anne said she had escaped being ra*ped twice and doesn't want to venture into relationships because she doesn't know the men that are actually after her body.
"Even men of God actually want to have me on bed, bankers, everyone... Things that'd naturally come to me they'd want to have their way before helping out.. I have changed my mode of dressing in times past but there's no way I can cover the curves.
"Life is becoming more frustrating for me as I can't even walk into any establishment that is run by a man as he'd definitely want to do something with me."
When asked if she had talked to someone responsible about her challenges, the food science and technology student of Imo State University told Legit.ng that people who hear her story (guys majorly) usually want to have their way.
Anne, from a family of 6, also added that ladies get jealous of her physique.
The 25-year-old who aspires to own a bakery she would name Roli's Cakes and Pastries said chubby ladies shouldn't be seen as sex objects.
"We have feelings too and deserve to be respected, appreciated and loved."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian lady shared her experience at the hand of immigration staff for refusing to adopt her husband's surname.
The lady named Aisha said she was judged harshly by immigration staff who couldn't stop talking about her decision to keep her surname.
"I was judged harshly by immigration staff when I went to renew my international passport for keeping my name. Refusing to bear my husband's name was so bizarre to them that they refused to shut up about it."
