Award winning kwaito star Lvovo Derango explained why he is not planning on losing weight saying it’s who he is. He did express in one of his interviews with TshisaLive that his stomach was giving him issues dancing as it was getting bigger. Even with the stomach getting bigger Derango said he is still fit to perform and dance his shoes off.
“Right now the concern is my stomach‚ because it is getting big. But my weight is still fine because if you put me on stage I will give 120%. I can’t lose weight because it’s who I am‚ when you speak about L’vovo‚ you speak about the weight‚” he said.
The Ngyabuya December singer planned to enter the Comrade Marathon a while ago to maintain his health but failed to qualify which led him to give up and just live with reality that he’s big and he’s fine with it.“I took up running because I always try to do things that people think I cannot do but unfortunately I didn’t qualify. I haven’t run since then because I needed to return to studio to make music‚” he said.
L’vovo admits that he has never given concern or attention to people who poked fun and commented negatively on his weight throughout his musical career.“I make it easier for people like me because even if I am teased I am comfortable with who I am and can do anything. Jokes are jokes. I don’t take things personally. There are more important things in life.”
