Not to be That Guy but Imma have to be That Guy...
While it is true he can afford a trainer, chef and etc, it's more than a just that. I used to say those too.
I imagine if I won the lottery and ended up with a ton of free time I could probably have the best version of my physical self in matter of months. But just like steroids won't make you swole on their own, you still have to put in the work and have self discipline. I doubt it's only just being more active but that's definitely part of it.
Mostly everyone can lose weight just simply burning more calories than than they consume. How long it takes to reach a point where you're considered to be "generally" In Shape, skinny, athletic, or whatever depends on where you started, what activities you do, and how intense you are.
He's definitely come a long way. Getting rid of a double chin is an accomplishment.

By definition the process of losing weight is pretty simple; (unless u want to be a bodybuilder) burn more calories can you put in.
Now actually doing it and keeping it up is the difficult part.
I know 1st hand cause i'm not where i should be w/ weight loss goal. Damn u sugary treats
What made you want to get in shape?
I was like this before I became famous. I was all about health and wellness but you go through phases. I was going through some deep shit so I just let myself go and wanted to indulge and be a part of the community and America. So I started hanging out and doing what Americans do. I became a product of my environment. You guys wanna indulge? Let's fucking indulge. What else were we gonna do?
After a while it becomes—Okay, I see everyone in this space took that way out. Now let’s see if we can get it moving. Let’s see if we can do something besides just turning up and getting drunk and eating all this shit. If I showed up at first, and was like, "Hell yeah lets go workout! Let’s go do this!" It would be like "What the fuck? We can't relate to you."
No one wants to be the weird fitness rapper.
Yeah! There's nothing relatable to you. I'm just relatable to everybody. This is a part of my job now. I have to be on stage to entertain my fans for 45 minutes and it's like ya'll want me to be out of breath in 15 minutes?
What is your workout routine?
It's really just jumping up and down on stage. And eating foods that I know are not gonna make me tired while I'm on stage and after.
But when I'm not about to go on, I'll have whatever I want to eat. Hot wings, whatever. I'm always moving. I barely even rest anymore. My whole lifestyle is different. While everybody is still sleeping, I'm up. I can’t even tell anybody what it is, it’s something that you have to get accustomed to your body and figure out. Just put that time into yourself. That's all it takes.
But nobody wants to put in the time. They want Makonnen to give them a thing and it's like ‘oof yeah I got it.’ It's been eight months. Oh you see an Instagram picture now and think I did it overnight but no, it's been eight months of going through a different lifestyle.
