Yetunde Bakare, the popular Nigerian actress, has talked about the issue of age fraud.
She said age fraud aka football age is not peculiar to celebrities alone.
The actress stated it’s a common practice in society for people to falsify their age.
She also highlighted varying reasons individuals across all spheres in society engage in the age reduction practice.
“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,” she said.
