Thinner, fitter, healthier – Freshlyground’s petite lead singer is looking fabulous!

On stage she sings: “Even though I have fat thighs, flabby arms, a potbelly still gives good loving.”

Freshlyground’s lead singer, Zolani Mahola, never made any secret of the fact she was proud of her curves – and fans loved her for it.

But within a year the songstress has gone from plump to petite, shedding almost a third of her body weight.

“I was too heavy for my frame; now I finally feel comfortable in my own skin,” Zolani (31) says as she chats to YOU’s Latashia Naidoo at the Victoria Junction Hotel in Cape Town.

Dressed in skinny jeans, a vest and trainers, she looks amazing – it’s not hard to see why she had viewers bowled over when she performed at the SA Idols finale recently and showed off her sleek new look.

She admits it was seeing herself in a TV ad last year that made her decide she needed to do something about her weight.

“I remember watching myself in the ad and thinking about how far I’d come in the wrong direction, and it just clicked for me that this is what I needed to do.”
