How my Tribal Marks caused Problem For Me- actor Olaiya Igwe open up




In a recent interview with PunchNg the Ace actor, Ebun Oloyede popularly know as Olaiya Igwe described how his tribal marks have been more of a curse than blessing to him, read excerpts from the interview below...

"These tribal marks happen to be a problem. As you are looking at me, I do not have the privilege to be a footballer but if I were one, I would not have been able to play professionally because of these tribal marks. They would believe that you had surgery and you would be banned from playing. Our parents thought it was part of our culture but it was an uncivilised act. What they did was not something good.

“They believed that with the marks on my face, people would be able to identify my lineage but they were fooling themselves. How would they have known if my father had sex with his housemaid and she gave birth to me but his wife decided not to make a fuss about it? Yet people would believe that I am from that lineage. Tribal marks are not a DNA, many people might not agree with me but I know what I am talking about. However, there is nothing I can do about it"
