Nigeria celebrity and media personality, Bolanle Olukanni, on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 has revealed on her Instagram page that she had to struggle with self-confidence as a teenager because she battled with stretch marks. She also told of how she got over the battle after a while.

Who would ever think that someone whose admirers span across all the nooks and crannies of Nigeria, once had self-confidence issues?

See what she wrote below;


I first got stretch marks on my shoulders when I had my first Growth spurt . I was probably 12. All my friends would wear tank tops and spaghetti tops and I felt like I had to cover my shoulders. It affected my confidence during my teenage years and I spent my early early adulthood hiding my shoulders. Well , I finally got over it and I realized it’s not a big deal . So to women and men who have stretch marks and feel self-conscious about it …please don’t – you are beautiful no matter what ! ❤️❤️❤️ #beautylook#growingpains#stretchmarks#flawsandall
