It is a conversation that many Nigerian women have endured and will continue to endure. Tiwalade’s mum performs a series of dramatic gestures and makes several grand statements to emotionally blackmail Tiwalade into agreeing to lose weight. And Tiwalade, who is aware that she is overweight, thinks ‘why not, how hard could it be? However, losing weight turns out to be more strenuous than she originally assumed. In addition, Tiwalade has to deal with a mother who is like a dog with a bone, a sister, played by Sharon Oja, who is pretty, slim and shallow, and a love-life that is less than appealing.
