Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar has revealed she lied about her age earlier to fit in.The actress says she would be 30 in June,despite many thinking she is older. She told Encomium.
Your birthday is Friday, June 12. What preparations do you have on ground in respect of that?
I don’t understand if there should be any preparations on that, please (laughs). I am only planning to spend it with you guys. So, get ready. It’s going to be a birthday with the press. Nothing elaborate at all. It’s going to be an avenue for media interaction where everybody will be free to ask me any question about my life and career, be it positive or negative. No holds barred.
I will be 30 on June 12, 2015.
But that’s incredible because a lot of people believe you’re more than that. Some even said you’re 35. How come you now say you’re just 30?
” 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.
But that’s the truth about my age. Or are you the one who issued me a birth certificate? I am 30 and I am proud of it.”
