Four times the internet completely failed Nigerians

12 September 2016, 11:31

Lagos - The internet is not infallible, a number of times it has got it wrong. Here are five times the internet failed to get the ages of Nigerian celebrities right.

1. When we thought Funke Akindele was 40

The actress declared she is actually 39 on her birthday last month. It was a week after her wedding to musician JJC.

#chillingonmybirthday ???? #fabulous @39

2. When Eniola Badmus became six years older in one night

Many argued that the plus-size actress looks 39, until she refuted the claims and confirmed that she was 33.

3. When Kiss Daniel told us to wait for a press conference

Kiss is only 22 or 29 according to Wikipedia, but they have changed it back to 22

Five months after and we are still waiting for the press release.

4. When they made us see Don Jazzy as grandpa

Many thought he was older than D’banj, Wikipedia put his age first at 46, before  making corrections

The music producer who will turn 34 in November once said his ‘ugly’ face and ‘old’ look could be the problem.
