Ace Nigerian media personlaity and show host, Oladotun Ojuolape Kayode, known as Do2dtun shares why many Nigerians lie about their age.
The conversation about age has been on and off in the industry. However, it is clear that following BBNaija’s Chichi’s ’23rd’ birthday celebration yesterday, 11th January, it sprung again.
Do2tun takes to Twitter to share why many Nigerians may prefer to lie about their ages rather than tell the truth.
As stated by him, the Nigerian mentality has found a way to stigmatize “age”. He adds that many times, aging is made to look bad, and this is why many would rather lie.
“Aging is a crime in Nigeria. “you don dey old o” “Agbaya” “you are old; stop dressing like this” Some of you have limited anyone growing up to think it’s bad to be older. We are too ageist & that’s why a few have grown bad attributes of lying about their age”, Do2dtun
