Popular Nigerian activist, Aisha Yesufu has taken to Twitter to address woke mothers who wear makeup on their toddlers.
She told such mothers to chill out and allow their daughters enjoy their childhood without the pressure of having to wear makeup.
According to her, they have the rest of their life put on makeup and as such, should be allowed to be kids.
Aisha Yesufu wrote, “Your toddler has the rest of her life to wear makeup. Allow her to enjoy her childhood with no pressure.”
