Nengi shows proof of age
Ex-beauty queen and BBNaija lockdown housemate, Nengi Rebecca Hampson has shown fans evidence that she indeed 22 years old.
Recall the throughout the just concluded BBNaija season 5 show, controversies were surrounding Nengi’s actual age especially after she revealed to her colleagues that she was born in 1998. This piece of information set the internet on fire with some people convinced that Nengi was falsifying her age.
The controversy was even more fuelled by the fact that Nengi’s profile video from her beauty contest showed that she was 23 years in 2017 which was when she contested.
Coincidentally, Nengi cleared the air on that in the house because they had their questions too. She said that when she went for the beauty pageant she was not up the stipulated age so she had to beef up her age so that she could contest.
Few weeks after her exit from the show, she shared an Instastory clip of her passport while in transit and on it showed her year of birth to be 1998. This sparked a heated conversation on social media because some fans still don’t believe that she is 22 while the loyal ‘Nengi Royals’ as her fanbase is popularly called jumped to her defence asking the naysayers if they had access to her birth certificate.
