Busiswa On Being Body-Shamed. The Gqom star Busiswa has once again took to social media to express how she has experienced a great deal of body-shaming in the industry.

The star posted a video on Instagram where she addressed the issue of being discriminated for how you look and how the society has come to accept women who look a certain way in the industry. The Midnight Starring hitmaker was gracing the cover of Bona magazine looking as beautiful as ever still in her full-size figure.

Busiswa went on to list some of the reasons she was made to believe that she could not be a ‘cover girl’.

“It’s about all the girls who’ve been told the same things, I’ve heard: ‘you’re too big, you must do more than talk in your songs, you were better off as a poet, for your body-type, what will you do if you run out of ideas?, we don’t design plus-sizes here,” Busiswa said.

The musician said the cover symbolised that she has always been worthy, just as she is.

“Well five years in the music industry and there is one thing I know for sure: I am enough. You are enough!”

She also gave haters a stern warning to “bounce” if they didn’t understand her excitement.

“Guys if you don’t understand why this excites me so much, unfollow now because I’m about to spend the whole month explaining,” she said.

And, she wasn’t joking because as you will see in the video below, she’s ready to shout out her cover girl status to the anyone who will listen.
