Caroline Danjuma addresses controversy surrounding age
Nigerian actress, Caroline (Hutchings) Danjuma, has reacted to claims that she is older than she professes.
On Sunday, Caroline had shared some photos of herself via her Twitter handle, announcing that she turned 35.
“Time for a magical ride on the 35th floor. Cheers to a new year!”
Taking to the comments, a fan shared a screenshot from a Wikipedia page that quoted her to be aged 42.
In her reaction, Danjuma discredited the actuality of the Wikipedia page.
“Intelligent people know anyone can put anything on Google without facts. You ain’t intelligent in 2022.”
Further, another user dismissed Danjuma’s claim of being 35.
The user cited what (s)he claimed was Danjuma’s age during a film project they had worked on together in the past.
“Lol, Ekanem, please. No be only 35. When I co-produced my first movie ‘Foreign Affairs’ which you starred in, I was 18 and you were 22. I’m 38 today.”
After many dug up instances that tried to prove Caroline is above age 40, the actress took to Instagram today to share a photo of herself, her mother and her daughter with a detailed caption to support her age claim:
Trilogy … this is my mum who is in her 50’s , so how in Gods name will I be 46 ???????? Am I reducing my age because
- I need a job in a company ?? I am the CEO of mine
- Reducing my age for nollywood ?? An actor can act both young and old roles , makeup can be applied
- I am reducing my age because of school ?? I have enough certificates already
- Reducing my age because of relationship ?? A good man will love his woman regardless of her age
- Reduce my age for your validation ?? I DONT GIVE 2 F’ssss about you sugar
- Not everyone in a class are the same age . In secondary school I had people 5 years older than me in my class , in uni my assis rep was 45 years old , in my masters my class rep was 23 and I 34 , my MBA I had both young and old …
- Just because you acted a movie with me does NOT mean we are the same age ..
8.. you are asking for my birth certificate , have you seen your own mother and fathers birth certificate before ???
That it took you time to achieve something in your life does not mean I have to run your race .. we have different glory anf destiny.. that you started school late and failed entrance exam couple of times is none of my biz , we don’t have the same Iq.. stupid people saying they watched me as a kid .. I was in the industry for ONLY 2 yrs before my marriage .. bomboclat can’t stand my glory ..”
Are you aware wiki can be created and edited by ANYONE ? And not everything on Google is a FACT ?? Even Christ was married on Google .. to the clowns talking unintelligently about my age , MIND YOUR BIZ THAT PAYS YOU .. any age , race , class can act a movie .. any one can be a star at any age , no rules to follow .. yes I am 35 years old and this will be the last time I will address this .. I don’t need to be an old woman to achieve anything or be an actress . Success and luck comes to any one when it is their time .. focus on making money ..my sparkle will keep hurting your eyes hun”
