Veteran Nollywood actress Patience Ozokwor has tackled those trolling her because of her age and questioned when old age stopped being a blessing.
In the post shared on her Instagram page, Patience Ozokwor said people do all manner of things to cover up their ageing, but she is proud of her old age and counts it as an enormous blessing.
According to the veteran actress, she often hears comments like She now looks so old, she don old suddenly, she don old finish, Ahaa Mama what happened and many others, but she doesn’t care about it.
Patience Ozokwor said life is fleeting and advised her fans and followers to fully enjoy the life they have been blessed with.
The veteran actress added that she is not afraid to look or be old or worried about being in any exclusive league or validated by people’s opinions.
Sharing a photo of herself, she wrote: When did old age stop being a blessing? People do all manner of stuff to cover up aging – good for them! I own my age and experience with my full chest and count it an enormous blessing.
Comments like: She now looks so old, She don old suddenly, She don old finish, Ahaa Mama what happened. Make me smile. Ageing is not unattractive or undesirable.
Life is fleeting. Enjoy the years you’ve been blessed with fully. I am not afraid to look/be old. I am not worried about being in any exclusive league or being validated by people’s opinion. Respect the elderly
