Although being skinny is idealized in much of the United States and Europe, in Africa the case is often the bigger the better — at least when it comes to curves. These ladies aren’t just curvy — they’re drop-dead gorgeous and their appearances have earned them some seriously huge fan bases not just in their country, but all over the globe. Although some of the bodies on this round-up are naturally blessed with curves, others have been cosmetically enhanced to achieve their look.
Of course, a lot of these celebrities’ fans are men, and you’re about to learn why. Here are the top 10 curviest musicians, actresses, socialites, models and more from Africa.
