Slimming tea, waist trainers don’t work – Yvonne Nelson
Actress Yvonne Nelson has taken a swipe at social media influencers who promote waist trainers and slimming teas on their social media handles.
According to her, there is no way these products will give ladies the curvy body they are after because “it never works that way”.
She argued that apart from seeing a plastic surgeon, one can only possess the curves that are advertised through their mother’s genes or by adopting a rigorous gym routine.
However, these curves are not possible through slimming teas and waist trainers that are continuously advertised by some celebrities online.
“Before we go to church, lemme say this…baby gyal, no slimming tea/waist trainer is gonna give you no TAPOLI /snatched body”.
“Stop letting these companies/influencers fool you. Two people, a doctor or your mum and one place, the gym can give you that body”.

The desire to obtain a curvy body is an ongoing mass search for a beauty standard that appeals to many Ghanaian women. This search has left many women with health-related complications while some are known to have lost their lives.
In October of 2019, an Accra Circuit Court acquitted the chief executive of Advanced Body Sculpt Center, also known as Obengfo Hospital, Dr Dominic Obeng-Andoh, who offered services in liposuction and other surgical processes.
The doctor had been accused of failing to possess the right and updated certificate to make it possible for him to practise.
The death of Stacy Offei-Darko, a Deputy Chief Executive Officer for the National Entrepreneurship Innovation Programme (NEIP) who had received liposuction surgery at the hospital, prompted both public and prosecutorial scrutiny into Obengfo’s practices.
