Nollywood actress, Linda Osifo has spoken on how her Tribal marks made her lose confidence in herself.
During a Podcast with Stephanie coker, the Black Endowed actress disclosed that when she moved to canada she was always questioned about her tribal marks from kids while some kids would wonder if she got this as a result of wild animal attack.
In her words;
I can remember there was a moment when a student asked me because I had tribal marks and she was like what do you guys do in Africa? Is this what you guys have there? Or why is your color like this? Then you start wondering, what is different about me? And that’s when you start learning that you’re different.
What other students thought about my tribal marks was that I was attacked by a tiger and I would say it’s a lion. Of course, it’s a child’s imagination
Talking on how her Tribal marks affected her self confidence, she wrote;
Of course it did, sometimes it still does.
Everybody wants to look really perfect no matter what and when you have a little bit of imperfection in any area, it’s still going to affect no matter how much you say it’s little or it’s this Like it’s a mental thing because you want everything to look like ten over ten
