Again and again we have heard it said that age is just a number. While some of us tend to doubt that saying, some people actually are literally living it.
When you become successful, so successful that you almost always don't know what else exactly you should do with your money, the tendency is to opt for changing how you look totally for women and spending all of it in nightclubs for men. Some go for plastic surgeries, some go for very expensive creams etc. At the end of the day, the side effects of these unnecessary changes become really prominent. Most obvious might be you tend to age faster than you really are. Hence the consequent heavy dependency on make ups.
While that may be the case for some, it is not for others. Key amongst them for me are none other than the stunning Genevieve Nnaji and the adorable Omoni Oboli. They are aged 41 and 42 respectively yet they look 30!
Both are equally incredible actresses even though Genevieve is a more familiar name. Both have kids, Genevieve has a daughter Chimebuka who is married now and Omoni has three sons who are actually triplets(Gozi, Chizi and Tobe).
Very popular movies the amazing Omoni has starred in or directed include sugar rush, wives on strike, anchor baby, being Mrs Elliot, moms at war, love is war, the first lady, to mention but a few. She has been active since 2009 and is one of the women really pioneering the nollywood as we know it now.
Very popular Genevieve movies which she has starred in or equally directed include Lionheart(the first Nollywood Oscar nominee), farming, road to yesterday, weekend getaway, half of a yellow sun, mirror boy, tango with me, letters to a stranger, 30 days, ripples (as way back as in 1987) etc. Genevieve has been acting since 1987, that's more than 30 years now. Yet she is showing no signs of slowing down. Neither is she aging one bit.
These women simply prove that no matter how successful you're, never stop being yourself! Be African and proud. As for whether they age backwards or not, well you have seen their pictures, so I think you can answer that. Though I really think they do.
