Nicole Chikwe Addresses Body Shaming Comments
Nicole Chikwe, wife of Nigerian rapper Naeto C, has for the first time addressed the body-shaming comments and trolling she received from Nigerians when she started dating the rapper.
Chikwe revealed that she was only 22 when she started dating the rapper, who was already very popular.
She said that people took to Twitter between 2010 to 2012 to criticize her face and body, claiming that the rapper could do better.
In her Instagram slideshow post, Chikwe explained that the trolling affected her especially considering how young she was, but she turned the online dragging around.
Instead, she thinks of the dragging as the “catalyst” she needed to begin loving herself.
She now refers to herself as “Premium Pie” and “Finest in Lagos”.
She captioned the post, “All my ‘Premium Pie’ and ‘Finest in Lagos’ talk has an origin story. This is it. While I am super nervous to share, the urge to finally speak is greater. I love you and thank you ❤️.”

The couple got married in a flamboyant wedding ceremony in 2012 and have two children together. Celebrating their ninth wedding anniversary last year, Nicole Chikwe posted a throwback photo of the couple from their wedding ceremony.
She captioned the photo, “I knew shortly after we met, that you were the one for me. However, during my brideprice negotiation, the Umuada of my village asked for 2 goat legs- and your family retorted saying that they are too big to be cutting and sharing animal parts.”
“Instead, they gave 2 whole goats (one was even pregnant with twins, so technically it was a family of 4). That was the moment I realised OVERENJOYMENT WOULD FINISH ME IN THIS MARRIAGE 😂😂😂😂 #ObaFestival no do reach youuuuu oh Super C!!!”
“Naeto, I truly enjoy being married to you. Even when times have been tough, you have spoilt me with love, friendship, support, respect and kindness.”
“You’ve given me room to grow and become my own person- and you have loved and encouraged all the versions of Nicole you have encountered in our nine years as husband and wife. Love you now and always @naetosuperc #Year9.”
