Empress Njamah has denied a report being circulated on social media, which quoted her as saying she feels disgusted when men in their 20s make advances at her.
The controversial statement reads, “A lot of men in their twenties say they admire me and want to date me. I am sure most of them think I am really young. Sometimes, I find it annoying because if they know my actual age, they wouldn’t come close or show interest in me.
“When people say I look like a lady in her twenties, I just smile. I am actually in my thirties…
She has however described it as “defamation of character”. She also challenged the national daily to produce proof that she made the statement or apologise for putting her out in a bad light.
“Hello people .. I woke up this morning and was bombarded with several calls calling my attention to the above post from @instablog.. this really got me infuriated because I am not stupid to say such.. and part of the reasons I seldom grant interviews. This guy in question chased me for days for an interview and I granted the interview because of the reputation I have for punch online… but what I discussed with the punchonline journalist Olusola by name had nothing what so ever to do with the above. We only talked about my charity works and beauty tips… and ofcos @instablog foundbit juicy for publication @punchonline via Olusola…if U cannot produce proof of how you came about how I said the above statement I will take this as an outright defamation of character and demand an apology. Journalists should understand that they wield a magic wand in the name of what they write and care has to be taken not to mare the xters of the people they write about especially when we take out time to grant them interviews.. The masses can consume anything you give them regardless of the truth in the publication. The comments I read from @instablog are disturbing.. @lailasblog @chinnysblog @kemifilaniblog @yawnaijaent @goldmynetv @lindaikejiblog @famousblogng @neeceebosslady @gistonflameblog @mojidelanoblog1 @alexreports @instablog9ja”
