Rita Dominic and Her Real Age
Now, many people when they see this title for the first time will wonder if there is any difference between Rita Dominic as a human being and her Real Age. When things that are supposed to be non issues get over flogged, they get to be treated like separate entities. This is what you experience when you think and talk about Rita Dominic’s age. Now, this Mbaise born actress is rich, famous and very beautiful. Yes?
We have experienced lots of controversies about people’s age, especially when it comes to the female folks. But Rita Dominic’s age controversy is getting out of hand. A friend of mine asked, “why all these, even if she is a female Methuselah”. The fact that she is still single at this moment with no record of marriage, divorce or serious relationship makes things worse.
Another dimension was added to this age debacle when she celebrated her 40th birthday on the 12th of July 2015, indicating that she was born on the 12th of July 1975. It was during this event that one of the ladies who claimed to be her classmate during her primary school days in Aba, and who is sure of her age twitted, “But Rita you are 43 not 40. We all grew up at Aba and we were in d same class in Santa Maria Primary school, Aba. This should have been celebrated 3yrs ago not this year my dear Rita”.
She is actually not the only person that has said something about Rita Dominic’s official age not being her real age. So, the real question now is, “what is Rita Dominic’s real age”?
If it were to be in saner climes and developed world, Rita would be eager to claim even more years to showcase her stunning beauty (of course, she is very beautiful) and sweet sixteen look as a sign of good health and physique. But this is Nigeria, and every female in Nigeria wants to be seen as being younger than every other male in the street, even to the extent that some young mums tend to hide some of the children of their youth from the public, so as not to be seen as having aged.
Now, the advice is, old age is not sin, it is not. In fact, it is even a testimony that you are strong, and have been living a good life. When you are old and still beautiful, it says a lot about your lifestyle and pact with nature. So, flaunt you real age ladies. It isn’t any sin.
