Celestine Donkor comments about reports of getting weight loss surgery

According to her study, physicians typically prescribe such procedures based on health evaluations, especially if one's life is in danger owing to weight-related difficulties. However, in her instance, Celestine stated that she is quite fit and has never suffered high blood pressure or other abnormalities linked with being plus size, so surgery is not a possibility for her at this time, unless advised. "I am plus-sized yet highly active. In a marathon, I might even outperform a lot of slender folks. The obesity is in my genes; my family is large. I've never had high blood pressure or anything. I get frequent check-ups, drink enough of water, and get adequate rest, so I'm in good health."

Celestine Donkor, a gospel performer, has spoken out about claims that she is considering weight loss surgery.

Celestine stressed that she has not made a decision, thus “I wouldn’t say no and I wouldn’t say yes.”

Recognising the cultural pressure to maintain a specific image, particularly as an artist, the singer stated that she has weighed the health risks of body-altering operations.

Doreen Avio said in an interview with Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz that her phobia of knives is another barrier keeping her from undergoing surgery.

Celestine said that she had enough incisions on her body from her three caesarean sections during delivery.

In light of this, she prefers dieting and other less dangerous options such as exercise and intermittent fasting.

Celestine chose to invest in her soul above her body, despite receiving nearly GH¢50,000 for surgery.

“I am confident that if I have GH¢40,000 or GH¢50,000 to work on this body, I will invest in my soul.” This body will expire, no matter how thin and well-carved it is.
The useless thing after death is the human body; even animal bodies have value since we utilise them as sustenance, but for people, the corpse is no longer worthy of being discarded.”

Celestine Donkor warned her admirers to embrace her for who she is, as she will not endanger her life to adhere to conventional notions of what a perfect woman should look like.
