How I Handle Small Boy Who Call Me By My Name – Veteran Actress Shaffy Bello Blast Younger Celebrities

Renowned Nollywood icon Shaffy Bello recently conveyed her firm views on the respectful address of elders by younger individuals.

During a podcast discussion, she voiced her concern over the trend of youths addressing her informally by her first name, “Shaffy,” instead of using traditional honorifics like “aunty.”She expressed her sentiments, saying, “I still get it; I get the ‘Hi Shaffy.’” She emphasized the importance of upbringing, noting that the Igbo culture predominantly uses titles when addressing older relatives rather than informal names.

Shaffy went further to school for any youths guilty of this, often correcting them sharply but admittedly “with love.” She pointedly tells these young ones, “You haven’t earned the right to call me by my name.” After all, the actress reasoned, “I have a child as old as you are.”

The message is clear: respect your elders, especially accomplished ones like Shaffy Bello, who has been in Nollywood since some of these youths were infants! She finds such overly casual greetings as intolerable as being called merely “Shaffy.”

This could spark meaningful discussion around culture and generations showing deference. Shaffy makes no apologies for demanding acknowledgement of her senior status from juniors who may forget elder-youth dynamics. Her no-nonsense reminder will surely make youngsters act straight!
