Celebrity stylist, Toyin Lawani has expressed displeasure over the infamous trend among Nollywood actresses which involves age reduction.
In a post shared on her Instagram page, the fashionista demanded to know the rationale behind actresses reducing their age to appear young when in a real sense they aren’t.
She went on to state that she knows an actress who is 46, but claims to be 36 and when she asked her the reason for this, she said that’s the age the movie industry 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 🤡
Reacting, a netizen claimed that Toyin Lawani was indirectly writing about Caroline Danjuma but she vehemently rebuked the IG user.
