INTERVIEW: Lorraine Lionheart opens up on curvy body, Felabration, and more

Lorraine Lionheart, a well-known Botswana performer based in the United Kingdom, has said that her curvy body is a blessing for her. The singer, who has visited Nigeria on several occasions to perform, said she has enjoyed her time in various regions of the nation.

During a chat with Saturday Beats and obtained by glamsquad, she said, “My curvy body is such a blessing; I cannot find anything negative honestly. God will slap me if I ever complain. I am one of His chosen ones to show off His unbelievable creativity and I am doing a damn good job. God is so happy with me. So, no disadvantages over here. In fact, the advantages increase every day.

“It’s hard to name one place in Nigeria I love because these cities have all given me an amazing feeling of home. I have had such a warm welcome in Calabar, Abuja, Lagos and Benin and I am now actually actively looking for charities and community projects to support in Nigeria so that I can also give back in some way.”

I can never miss ‘Felabration,’ said Lionheart when asked why she travels to Nigeria to perform at the memorial concert for the late Afrobeat musician Fela Kuti. Only the pandemic edition for 2020 did I miss. Simply by giving me the confidence to be who I am and the freedom to speak my truth, Fela has profoundly changed my life.

“He also taught me to love and embrace every part of Africa. I now have a Fela Kuti tattoo on my chest. I was just born a bit too late. If I was born during his time, I would have married him by fire by force. ‘Felabration’ is an important festival for African music. I am in the process of hosting my own ‘Felabration’ in the UK next year and I will still come to Lagos for the original one.”

The ‘Keke Napep’ singer said, “Love, sex and money, what comes first for me? Whichever that brings peace. The three of them can be stressful now and then. I guess any can come first; as long as I am depending on me to get them, then, there is peace. I give myself love, I perform sex on myself regularly and I make my own money.”
