A Nollywood diva with facial tribal marks has revealed that she almost had surgery to remove them on account of being bullied as a child in that regard. Linda Osifo who took to her Instagram page to make the revelation, said her tribal marks caused people to make mockery of her, making her consider undergoing surgery to remove them.
Wrote Osifo: While in elementary school in Canada, I remember being made fun of about my tribal marks and asked if I got scratched by lions in Africa. The teasing got so bad that I tried surgically to remove my tribal marks”.
However, though she felt it made her ugly at the time, the actress said she had now realised how unique her marks make her.
Posted she: “I felt the tribal marks made me so ugly and weird from everyone else around me because I did not understand why I had it in the first place!
“Now that I’m all grown and wise, I’ve come to realize how beautiful and unique it sure makes me look. True beauty does not come from physical attributes, it comes from what is within. Here’s to the tribal mark gang”.
