In an interview with the Kampala sun, Singer Jackie was tasked to explain why the sudden gain of weight (because, see, we are idle like that duh!). At the recently concluded fashion show she organized at club play, Jackie was seen struggling to breathe, let alone sing. She looked like a mammoth in her outfit, a screaming contrast to the lighter and energetic performer in her days at singing group, The Obsesions!
In the interview she admitted the weight gain and went on to explain that parenting is the reason why!
“Yes I have gained weight but it’s because of the breastfeeding. I won’t stop breastfeeding like other artists and my baby later gets funny diseases. Breast milk is so important to the child when growing up. You see Sharon O’s Child is ever in hospital despite the being old enough” Jackie said.
She went on to say, her man tells her he is comfortable with her weight so who are we to question her. And indeed, who are we? Look, if you are going to become a celebrity, we are going to look for you and judge you! If you have weight, we will call you on it! If you have stretch marks, don’t become a celebrity because we will see them and tell your future husband. We even ‘inadvertently’ told Jackie’s husband about her weight but it seems he is hell bent on marrying a celebrity. They are set to wed in December this year and preparations are under way.
