Is this Africa’s answer to Kim Kardashian?
With a backside that measures an astonishing 60 inches, Eudoxie Yao is certainly turning heads.
But ‘Queen Eudoxie’ – who weighs nearly 15 stone – claims her extraordinary curves are all natural and insists she has never been under the knife – despite her extreme backside looking like the result of several trips to plastic surgeons.
Eudoxie, from Abidjan, Ivory Coast, happily flaunts her ample behind in tight-fitting clothes – and says she has no intention of ever finding out what size she is.
She said: ‘I’ve never had cosmetic surgery.
‘When I leave my house, people are often surprised and shocked at seeing me.
‘I stop traffic. People are shocked. But they never say anything to my face.‘I’d like to describe my look as ultra sexy.’
She added: ‘I wear a lot of stretchy clothes. I don’t like clothes that are too big. I like tight fitting clothes.
‘People with a figure like mine prefer to wear clothes that hide their shape. I don’t do that.
‘I like to show off my shape, and that can shock people. That’s why I’ve now become famous.’
She has amassed close to half a million followers on Instagram and regularly posts pictures of herself in underwear and bikinis to her followers – and has become somewhat of a celebrity.
She said: ‘I go to countries and fans treat me like an artist. I appear on TV, I go to events. Sometimes I present shows as a hostess.’
Her idol is Kim Kardashian and she’s hopeful of a similar break-the-internet moment.
‘I’ve been compared to her, and what she does,’ she said. ‘She’s definitely my role model.
‘Before, it was all about looking thin. But now, men are more attracted to women with curves. I think it’s changed a lot.’
When she first began posting photos online the cruel comments hit her hard but instead now welcomes the attention.
‘There have never been times when I haven’t felt attractive,’ she said. ‘When I began showing myself off on social media the negative comments used to really hurt me at the start.
‘Often I’d read them and cry over them. Now I just ignore them. I think those who write nasty comments aren’t particularly happy.
‘People have mocked me for my physique. I’ve put on weight and I accept it.
‘No one is going to tell me how to dress. I love my curves! I love my shape!’ Queen Eudoxie said she attracts ‘all types’ of men – but many are intimidated by her.
‘There are others that dream about seeing me. And when they see me, they can’t hide their joy,’ she said.
‘I’m attracted to men who believe in God, who are genuine and kind. Their physique doesn’t bother me. Fat or thin, I’m not interested at all in their shape.’
Eudoxie intends to keep celebrating her body and will keep dressing for herself.
She said: ‘People don’t like how I dress. People judge me – they say I dress too “sexy” and in a vulgar way. ‘I tell them no. You can be big and wear tight fitting clothes. And be at ease in your skin.’
