What is with the inessential habit of arguing and questioning the ages of others? Why is it important that we act as care takers who should know the itty bitty details of other people’s lives down to their ages. I mean, if a person says they are a 100 years, why is it so difficult to accept?
Time and time again, we have seem fans contend groundlessly over the ages of celebrities all around the world (with the exception of some Nigerian footballers who stay the same age for years), not withstanding, the thought that people would sit and argue over the ages of others is rather profound.
Take the case of movie star, Caroline Hutchings who reacted to reports and comments that she falsified her age.
The former actress who recently celebrated her 35th birthday took to her Instagram page to clear the air on the rumors concerning her correct age in a lengthy post.
She made reference to her mother whom she claimed to be in her 50s, stating there is no way she could be 46 as speculated on the internet.
“Trilogy … this is my mum who is in her 50’s, so how in God’s name will I be 46 ???????? Am I reducing my age because? 1. I need a job in a company ?? I am the CEO of mine. 2. Reducing my age for Nollywood?? An actor can act both young and old roles, makeup can be applied,” she wrote.
“3. I am reducing my age because of school ?? I have enough certificates already. 4. Reducing my age because of a relationship ?? A good man will love his woman regardless of her age. 5. Reduce my age for your validation ?? I DONT GIVE 2 F’ssss about your sugar.”
“6. Not everyone in a class are the same age. In secondary school, I had people 5 years older than me in my class, in uni my assis rep was 45 years old, in my master’s my class rep was 23 and I 34, my MBA I had both young and old.”
She went on to call out the people controlling the narrative about her age being fake.
“That it took you time to achieve something in your life does not mean I have to run your race, we have different glory and destiny.. that you started school late and failed entrance exam couple of times is none of my biz, we don’t have the same Iq,” she added.
“Stupid people saying they watched me as a kid. I was in the industry for ONLY 2 yrs before my marriage .. bomboclat can’t stand my glory.”
Hutchings previously known as Caroline Ekanem and Caroline Danjuma while she was married is a former Nigerian actress.
She made her screen debut in 2004, starring in some of Chico Ejiro’s popular films.
After a break from the film industry, she made a comeback in 2016, producing and starring in the romantic thriller Stalker.
The former movie star was formerly married to billionaire businessman, Musa Danjuma and they share three children together.
