Having been plus size for some years now TV personality Willis Raburu knows all too well the pain of being body-shamed.

Raburu who currently weighs 130kgs has encouraged men and boys to embrace themselves as no one is perfect.

"Here's to the boys who cover their stomachs when they sit down. Here's to the boys with stretch marks.

Here's to the boys who avoid the mirrors. Here's to the boys who skip eating. Here's to the boys who feel small.

Here's to the boys who work so damn hard every day to like themselves. Here's to the boys who hesitate before taking their shirts off at the swimming pool.

Here's to the boys who doubt themselves. Here's to the boys who insist on having the lights off during sex.

Here's to the boys whose body issues are waved away by society. Here's to the boys who have ever been told "You'd look so much hotter if..."

Adding

"Here's to the boys who can finish that sentence and remember the exact time it was said to them. Here's to the boys who hate shopping for clothes because nothing fits "just right."

Here's to the boys. Here's to the boys who are reading this.

Here's to the boys: you are attractive, you deserve to feel sexy, you have worth. You are wanted and loved. Here's to you."

Through his social media, the father of one advised men going through struggles not to let the challenges define them

"Men and boys are taught to be tough, yet many suffer in silence.

I see you, I’m here for you in the capacities I can, you are worthy and I am proud of you! Keep shining! You made it through another day!"
