The Nollywood star said that she is not afraid to look old as she gets comments about her old age, noting that she is not worried about people’s validation.
Her words in part, “When did old age stop being a blessing? People do all manner of stuff to cover up aging. I own my age and experience with my full chest and count it an enormous blessing.
“Aging is not unattractive or undesirable. Life is fleeting. Enjoy the years you’ve been blessed with fully. I am not afraid to look or be old.
“I am not worried about being in any exclusive league or being validated by people’s opinion.”
