Yetunde Bakare, a Nigerian actress, has explained why women lie about their age.
Goldennewsng reports that she asserts that the practice of lying or reducing one’s age is not unique to actresses; women from all walks of life do the same.
She stated, in an interview with Sunday Scoop, “Liars about one’s age aren’t limited to celebrities alone because a lot of people do it today.
Some people do it for their partners, while others do it to gain respect. Others do it in order to gain support or employment opportunities. It is also done by a lot of people in a variety of industries.
When they are looking for Mr. Right, many hardworking single women do it. Dating an older woman is frowned upon by men in this region. As a result, women frequently age to feel young and accepted.
