Willis Raburu's weight has been a major topic of discussion with a lot of people always bashing him for being 'too heavy'.

That all changed however, when the Ten over Ten host decided to shed off the extra kilograms following a life threatening warning from his doctor.

"He told me, if I was not going to lose some kilograms of the body weight, sooner or later, it would be a recipe for my death," he disclosed to eDaily.

The witty presenter's weight loss journey started after he linked up with his trainer Evelyn Owala of Eveal Health and Fitness and has since lost 12kgs dropping his weight down from his initial 144kgs in late June.

One of the interesting parts of his weight loss journey was the fact that his wife initially did not want him to lose any weight.

"I prayed to God to give me a nice, dark, tall guy. A guy who is a bit plump because I love plump guys," she revealed on Raburu's Youtube channel.

Despite her initial resistance to her husband's weight loss, Mrs Raburu supported her husband's weight loss decision and is his biggest supporter.

"My wife told me that it is important to work for myself. Not because of people's pressure; not because of what people say; not because of wanting to prove a point to anybody but a decision that I have to work out for myself," Willis said.

Big up on your weight loss Willis.
