Nigerian media personality Toke Makinwa has slammed some Nigerians who are fond of calling women in their forties old.
For the controversial Media Girl, age 40 and above is not a plague, so Nigerians should do better.
She also bemoaned that same people who call her old at 36, would drop lovely comments at Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian’s page forgetting that they are 50 and 40 respectively.
Taking to her Instagram stories, Toke Makinwa wrote, “This is a 37 year old woman. Kim is 40. Nobody calls them old. Nigerians are quick to age you and shame you with age. Nigerians with the constant ‘you don’t know you are almost 40″. Like 40 is a plaque. Yet they see JLo at 50 and all the comments you see there are ‘wow’. We are our own problem.”
Kemi Filani would recall the TV girl had clearly stated that marriage is not an important aspect of her life, however, she would like to correct some impressions people have about her person.
According to Toke Makinwa, people close to her or who have been a part of life can attest that she’s shameless, and there’s nothing anyone says about her that she will feel hurt.
She added that people judging her over her crashed marriage or her lifestyle are only getting themselves worked up.
In her words: “I thought I should have a quick chat with you guys. What I am about to tell you guys doesn’t really matter much. Those who know me and have been part of my life will know I am very shameless. I have sold my shame and when you are dealing with someone that is shameless, there is little or nothing that you can say that will get to them cos at the end of the day i own my shit. There is absolutely nothing you can say about me that is new. I think it’s actually disgusting when people constantly ask me and other women, when are you getting married. Why ask such ridiculous questions? Are you guys stupid?, she asked rhetorically.
