In few weeks’ time, Nollywood actress Halima Abubakar, who has had her fair share of controversy in the Nigeria entertainment industry, will top another year.
The Kogi state born actress cum producer said she will be clocking 30 on Friday, June 12, 2015.
However many had argued that Halima is lying about her age and suspect she’s more around 35 than 30, the actress has quickly explained why there is that misconception about her age and why she lied when she newly came into Nollywood.
“I will be 30 on June 12, 2015. When you say the truth, people argue. When you lie, they also argue. But I have said the truth, and I really don’t know what to do again. But when I came into Nollywood, I had to lie just to fit in because it’s an era of aunty, aunty. And I was in JSS II then. So, if people still can’t believe that I lied then just to fit in, that means they need a reality check. I am proud of my age,” she clearly stated.
