Celebrity stylist Toyin Lawani has lamented the trend of age reduction by most celebrities, saying they lie about their age for different reasons.
The 40-year-old in an Instagram post on Tuesday claimed an actress who is guilty of the act reduced her age by 10 years.
According to Toyin Lawani, most celebrities lie about their age for fear of being called ‘old’ and for possible acceptance.
She said: “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 need 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,” she wrote.
The topic of age reduction resurfaced on social media after a supposed schoolmate of reality star Maria Chike called her out a few days ago for claiming to be 30 on May 3.
