'Why people lie about their age' - OAP Do2dtun weighs in
This comes after trolls accused BBNaija's Chichi of lying about her age on her birthday.
This is following the buzz that trailed the celebration of BBNaija Chichi's birthday, where the reality star claimed she was just turning 23.
Do2tun took to Twitter to share his views about why many Nigerians may prefer to lie about their ages instead of telling the truth.
According to the OAP, ageing is a thing that many Nigerians have found to stigmatize, which has caused a lot of people to hide their true age.
"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," he wrote on Twitter.
