Bongo Flava actress Wema Sepetu is not happy with how she looks.

In an interview with Global Publishers, the Miss Tanzania 2006 shockingly admitted that she misses her old self.

Sepetu explained that she is worried about her body transformation and wishes that she could recalibrate to her old size.

She lamented that her clothes do not fit anymore.

“Kwa kweli ninaumiss sana ule mwili wangu wa zamani maana huku ninapoelekea siyo kabisa, kuna wakati natamani ule mwili wangu wa zamani urudi maana hata nguo zangu hazinitoshi tena,” said Wema.

Her admission comes barely days after Kiss 100 radio presenter shared her struggles with weight, stigma and bullying.

Nyangweso painfully narrated that she has been a victim of bullying since childhood.

Growing up, she ate at in the toilet to avoid stares in public and had to endure name-calling to contemplating suicide.

Most recent was when she was body-shamed while on vacation with her daughter and husband.  

"When I was young, I had always struggled with my weight, I remember I would never eat in public, I became so paranoid that people stared at me when I ate, I started eating in the toilet, which was just ridiculous,

"I posted the picture and I went on with my vacation. It's only afterwards that I saw the people expected me to wear, I don't know, garbage bags?

“I was sad, I was like 'I'm going to kill myself and this is how it's going to happen', it's just how it's going to have to be. The only reason I didn't go through with the suicide, was because I worried that my mum wouldn't find a coffin that would fit me. The only reason I didn’t go through with the suicide was that I worried that my mum wouldn’t find a coffin that fit me,” she said.
