Popular Nigerian businesswoman and fashion designer, Toyin Lawani, has questioned why people lie about their age.
According to the celebrity stylist, it’s amusing how little children want to pretend they’re old, while older individuals reduce their age to seem younger.
She questioned if the practise, which has already spread like wildfire, is intended to gain public acceptability.
She went on to say that she knows a Nollywood actress who is 46 but claims to be 36, and that when she confronted her about it, she stated it was the age Nollywood gave her.
In her words,
“When kids are younger like 13 they want to claim they are 18, when they get older they want to claim younger,
this rubbish is now very rampant, is it for acceptance or what cause I don’t understand, I know one Aunty that is 46 but she is still celebrating 36, I asked her why she said that was the age Nollywood gave her and she accepted it.
Like seriously y’all also neeed to relax , always quick to call people old and make them feel otherwise, see it’s something graceful to get old, nobody will pray not to get old na Abi ,
If you like paro di thy kingdom come, The time God ordained for you will still be the time , Easy people on the acceptance
It’s quite irritating with the lies and it’s also irritating on how you people Age shame people in the society #kingofallQueens ”.
