Nasra Yusuf, a former Churchill show comic, expressed her disgust with a widely circulated statement made by socialite Shakilla.
Shakilla claimed in an interview with Mpasho that all women pass away at the age of 28, therefore they should be careful with how they spend their 20s.
“Ladies expire faster than men, so if you get an opportunity build yourself a house or even your parents. When a woman reaches 28 or 30 she is done; no matter what you do you are done. The husbands will always look for young people like us so use it well,” Shakilla said.
The statement angered Nasra who opted to confront Shakilla, saying she should be specific with the category of girls who expire at 28 to 30.
“Nimeskia mahali ati “a ‘woman by 28 and 30 you’re done no matter what you’re doing” weuh..ati by hii age mtumie opportunities mnapata kujijenga
“I think this only applies to ‘women who use their femininity and their bodies to make it in life. Because if you’re using your femininity it’s true that by 30,hauwezi keep up na mtu wa 19, 20 kuget mwanaume,’ Nasra said in part.
She went on to give examples of powerful women who are still ruling the world in different sectors despite their age.
“Beyonce is 41, is she done, Rihanna Is 35, is she done, Oprah Winfrey is 69, is she done? They may not be as energetic as they were before but they’re certainly not done,”.
Nasra further cautioned Shakilla asking her to stop misleading and putting unnecessary pressure on women.
“Let’s stop misleading women and giving them unnecessary pressure!
“Mimi hao nimelist hapo wakikuja Leo waseme as a woman by 30 you’re done, swear I will listen to them and I will consider myself a failure.
“But not people that have nothing more to offer than sex appeal,” she added.
The comedian added;
“Next time mkiadvice watu, just be specific, stop communicating with all ‘women when the msg is for a selected few. Weuh msitupee stress na sisi hatuna wanaume wa kufund lifestyle yetu jameni,”.
Nasra added that at her age she has achieved a lot at her age.
