Nollywood actress Shaffy Bello says she finds it disrespectful when younger people call her by her first name.
Bello disclosed that it is irritating for young people to greet her with a ‘Hi’ and wave at her.
The actress, whilst speaking in a recent episode of the Me, Her And Everything Else podcast.
However, has acknowledged the difference between cultures around the world, stating that she knows how cultures and upbringings contribute to how people greet.
She also added that she’d rather be called “Ma’am,” than Shaffy.
On how she handles young people who call her by her name, Bello said,
“Usually my response is simple and I say it with love, I pull them close and I tell them ‘you haven’t earned the right to call me by my name, I have a child as old as you are. Even if I didn’t have children you haven’t earned the right, and you would never earn the right at your age to call me my name.”
