Clocking 30 years is a dreaded time for many women, but particularly so for single women in our kind of society. One Nigerian lady has however called ‘society’s’ bluff, saying she’s done well for herself despite being unmarried at 30.
It has been the norm to cast a shadow on the essence of single unmarried ladies, a type of marriage-shaming that has caused many young women to settle into wrong and abusive relationships/marriages in order to get society off their backs with the pressure, that gets even worse just as age 30 is approaching.
Well, categorising women and apportioning respect to them on the basis of their marital status doesn’t sit well with Instagram user, @Makeupbytemmy who is having none of it.
She took to her page to highlight how far she’s come, and congratulated herself for her many achievements.
Stating some of her achievements, she says she is holding her head up high and won’t mind ‘society’ as she embraces the big 30. Viva!

Today is 1st of December. Next month, I’ll be 30.
