Unbeknownst to many, Kaffy struggled deeply with being overweight terribly in her youth. At the age of 20 she used to be a size 16, and admits that physical weight is nothing compared to the mental, emotional, psychological weight you carry when you don’t feel beautiful in your own skin.
Being a product of a broken home, Kaffy and her siblings were subject to fending for themselves at a very early age. In her own words she said: I ate for quantity and not for quality, and this added to my weight gain, as well as the psychological and emotional trauma of trying to be successful as a dancer in a country where it is not accepted culturally, economically, and socially as a viable career option.
She pioneered Dance Fitness in Nigeria because unlike every other fitness program, dance has a great ability to eradicate emotional strongholds as it is a tool for detoxifying and releasing bad energy.
