Gospel singer Selina Boateng has embarked on a powerful campaign to combat the toxic culture of body shaming, particularly targeted at women in the spotlight, by social media trolls.

 

With her own experiences of body shaming in mind, Selina is using her platform to advocate for a more respectful and empathetic treatment of celebrities.

Selina Boateng, known not only for her musical talent but also for her strong principles, is taking a stand against the harmful practice of body shaming that has become all too common on social media.

She urged trolls to consider the real-world consequences of their hurtful actions and put an end to this behaviour.

In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, the acclaimed “Alpha & Omega” singer shed light on the detrimental impact of body shaming on individuals, regardless of their fame or success.

She stressed that celebrities, like anyone else, possess feelings and insecurities and deserve to be treated with kindness and understanding.

“The effects of body shaming are not confined to the public eye. They trickle down to influence societal attitudes towards body image and self-esteem, and this toxic behaviour needs to stop,” Selina Boateng emphasized.

Addressing someone’s appearance with mockery not only attacks their image but also affects their mental and emotional well-being, she added passionately.

Having been candid about her own struggles with body image in the past, Selina recognizes the crucial importance of body positivity and believes that no one should be subjected to hurtful comments about their appearance.

When asked about the scope of her campaign, Selina revealed that her advocacy for body positivity extends beyond her online presence. She plans to collaborate with fellow musicians to organize workshops, seminars, and awareness campaigns, aimed at addressing the issue.

“Celebrities continue to hold immense influence on social media, and I am very positive that, if we join hands together, we can foster a healthier online culture. Music has the power to touch people’s hearts and change perspectives,” Selina Boateng passionately expressed.

“As artistes, we have a responsibility to promote positive values and help build a supportive environment for everyone, regardless of their appearance,” she concluded with determination. Selina Boateng is not only using her voice to inspire through music but also to bring about meaningful change in the way society perceives and treats individuals’ bodies.”
