In a March 2018 interview with The Punch (Lagos, Nigeria), Daramola-Salako stated that she considers her big boobs to be an asset, not a curse: “The first attraction for most men who come across me is usually sexual. They see my big boobs and are moved immediately. But as a person, I would never go out with any man because they are attracted to my boobs because I know that it is too ordinary. As far as I’m concerned, women should stop seeing these ‘assets’ as a problem but take them as a blessing. It is only by so doing that they’ll know how to carry themselves better. They should carry themselves well and not be ashamed.”
