Nigerian actress, Yetunde Bakare has given reasons why women lie about their age.
According to her, the trend of lying or reducing one’s age is not peculiar to actresses as women in other walks of life do so too.
Speaking to Sunday Scoop, she said:
“Lying about one’s age isn’t limited to celebrities alone because a lot of people do it nowadays.
Some do it because of their partners and some do it to earn respect. Others do it to seek sympathy or get job opportunities. A lot of people in different industries do it as well.
“Many hard-working single ladies do it when searching for Mr Right. In this part of the world, guys see dating an older woman as a taboo. Hence, women reduce their age most times to feel young and accepted”.
