A popular Nollywood actress, in the news over alleged age falsification, has replied by saying: ‘I Can’t Reduce My Age, I Have Enough Certificates Already.
The actress in question, is no other than Carolyna Hutchings (formerly Caroline Danjuma), who was denying allegations that she falsified her age.
Hutchings, who celebrated her 35th birthday on Sunday, went under fire for allegedly falsifying her age, as netizens claimed that she was older than 35, in a story carried by Punch.
The Eagle can recall that the actress featured in The Real Housewives of Lagos, where she made her mark.
She took exceptions to the insinuation of her critics that there was no reason for her to lie about her age.
Sharing a picture of herself, her mum, and her child on her Instagram page, she noted that her mother was in her 50s.
‘I Can’t Reduce My Age, I Have Enough Certificates Already’
She wrote, “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 I need a job in a company? I am the CEO of mine.
“Reducing my age for Nollywood? An actor can act in both young and old roles. Makeup can be applied. I am reducing my age because of school? I have enough certificates already.
“Reducing my age because of a relationship? A good man will love his woman regardless of her age. Reduce my age for your validation? I don’t give two F’s about you, sugar.
“Not everyone in a class is the same age. In secondary school, I had people 5 years older than me in my class. In university, my assistant class rep was 45 years old. In my master’s, my class rep was 23 and I 34. In my MBA, I had both young and old.
“Just because you acted a movie with me does NOT mean we are the same age. You are asking for my birth certificate, Have you seen your own mother and father’s birth certificate before?
“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 a couple of times is none of my business. We don’t have the same IQ.
“Stupid people saying they watched me as a kid. I was in the industry for only two years before my marriage. Bomboclat can’t stand my glory”, she said.
