Toke Makinwa is calling out the hypocrisy of fellow Nigerians regarding ageism, loud and clear
The media personality and business mogul took to Instagram to call out this attitude, sharing a picture of Khloe Kardashian who clocked 37 over the weekend to drive home her point.
Under the picture of Khloe, Makinwa wrote,
“This is a 37 year old woman, Kim is 40. Nobody calls them old. Nigerians are quick to age you and shame you with age.”
She went on to point out that JLo is over 50 years old and most of the comments you see under her posts from Nigerians are usually “awww.” However, the same treatment isn’t obtainable for Nigerian celebrities in part of the planet.
“Nigerians with the constant “You don’t know you are almost 40,” like 40 is a plague. Yet they see Jlo at 50 a d the comments you see is “wow”. We are our own problem.”
