The necessity of physical fitness in showbiz cannot be overemphasized. It affords celebs, especially entertainers, the energy, flexibility and looks needed to make impact in their chosen career. Male artistes like Uzi, Peter Okoye (PSquare), Iyanya, Flavour and a host of others, have made their fit physique part of their trade mark. And a number of female celebrities have begun to take fitness and healthy living very seriously. They are hitting the gym as a way of staying healthy, maintaining their shape and enhancing their career. Below are my top three fit female celebrities (yours may be different).
- Kate Henshaw
The popular Nigerian actress Kate Henshaw has positioned herself not just as a top actress but also as a force to reckon with in body fitness. Kate Henshaw is known for her consistent workouts and she’s even got a workout video. Aunty Kate often uploads videos of her daily workout on social media. The forty-four-year-old mother of one (born 19 July 1971) has a physique of a teenager as a sign of her dedication to fitness and healthy living.
Kafayat Oluwatoyin Shafau (born 30 June 1980), popularly known by her stage name Kaffy, is a Nigerian dancer, choreographer, dance instructor and fitness coach. The mother of two is best known for breaking the Guinness World Records world record for “Longest Dance Party” at the Nokia Silverbird Danceathon in 2006. Kaffy led her dance group to break the Guinness Book of Records world record for “Longest Dance Party” after they danced for 55hours and 40minutes. She is arguably the fittest Nigerian female celebrity. The gym seem to be her second home as her Instagram page is flooded photos of her sweating it out in the gym.
Eniola Akinbo, professionally known by her stage name Niyola, is a Nigerian recording artist, singer, songwriter and performer. Niyola has a body to die for. Her trim figure, flat belly and chocolate skin, get heads spinning. We need no prophet to tell us that she spends ample time keeping fit. She also has a number of her workout pictures on her social media handle.
There also other female celebrities like Tiwa Savage, Cynthia Morgan, and even Toolz and Ini Edo who have been hitting the gym lately.
