'I am from a poor background’ ends at 30, after that you are the background.

You can't claim to come from poor background at 30

Nigerian film actress, Tonto Dikeh has taken to her Instagram page to offer thought-provoking reflections on individuals aged 30 and above.

In her post on the photo and video sharing platform, she revealed that the moment a person gets to 30 years of age, they can no longer freely state that they are from a poor background.

Tonto Dikeh opined that someone saying that they are from a poor background officially ends once they clock 30.

But what does it mean to “become your background” after 30? Is it a predetermined fate, or is there room for change and growth? Dikeh’s words invite us to consider the complexities of identity and agency. While our backgrounds undoubtedly shape us, they do not have to define us indefinitely.

Indeed, the journey toward generational wealth – or any form of success – is not solely determined by where we come from, but rather by where we choose to go. It requires resilience, determination, and a willingness to challenge the status quo. As Dikeh aptly puts it, “After a person clocks 30, they become their background, rich or poor.” In essence, it is our actions and choices that ultimately shape our destinies.

So, what does this mean for those who find themselves on the cusp of 30 or beyond? It’s an opportunity to embrace personal agency and to rewrite the narrative of their lives. It’s a reminder that despite the challenges we may face, we have the power to transcend our circumstances and create a future that defies expectations.

But Dikeh’s message also carries a broader significance beyond individual empowerment. It speaks to the need for systemic change – a restructuring of societal norms and institutions that perpetuate inequality and disadvantage. It’s a call for greater access to opportunities, resources, and support for those who have been marginalized by their backgrounds.

She went on to reinforce the fact that once a person reaches the age of 30, they automatically become of poor background.

Meanwhile, a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos on Friday scheduled the sentencing of Tonto Dikeh’s ex-bestie, crossdresser Bobrisky for April 9.

The controversial crossdresser was convicted for abuse of the Naira.

The trial judge, Justice Abimbola Awogboro convicted the defendant following his guilty plea to the charge brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The court reserved till April 9, to sentence the convict and ordered that he be remanded in custody of the EFCC.

EFCC had on Thursday, filed a six-count charge against Bobrisky, but he was arranged Friday.

According to the charge, counts one to four borders on alleged tampering with Naira notes, while counts five and six borders on money laundering.

When the case was called, the prosecutor, Mr. Suleiman Suleiman told the court that following a discussion, the defendant had agreed to plead guilty to the charge.

He made an oral application for counts five and six to be struck out, leaving counts one to four. The court consequently struck out counts five and six.

When the remaining counts were read to the defendant, Bobrisky pleaded guilty to them.
