• For a very long time, I lost passion for myself and I lost confidence and I became unhappy about myself - Wema Sepetu.
It has finally been revealed that Tanzanian actress Wema Sepetu underwent gastric bypass surgery hence the drastic weight loss.
Before the weight loss, Wema weighed 106kgs before partnering with Viva Serenity which facilitated her surgery.
She was in turn to become their brand ambassador.
In 2018 is when she underwent presurgical tests.
She was later flown to India where she underwent advanced gastric surgery, where the tummy was reduced to absorb few calories.
Speaking about what she looked forward to after the surgery, Wema shared:
‘I see a new Wema, I see myself going international. I have not been very confident before the camera. I do not like the person I am before the camera, I see new projects coming my way. I was 50 kgs but now I am 106KGS, what have I been eating?
I hope to gain my confidence as I lost my confidence somewhere in between. I look forward to embracing my beauty.''
Wema further added:
"For a very long time, I lost passion for myself and I lost confidence and I became unhappy about myself. It made me lose so much in life."
Wema has maintained the weight. However, her weight loss has raised questions on different occasions with some of her fans accusing her of being HIV positive.
Wema has also started a cooking show, intending to extend the healthy lifestyle she chose.
