Popular Nollywood actress, Shaffy Bello, has revealed her standard answer to certain daring younger people who call her by her first name.

She made this revelation on a podcast episode where Stephanie Coker complained about younger people calling her by her name, saying it’s disrespectful and unpleasant.

Shaffy Bello, who is much older than Stephanie, was asked if she had felt and experienced the same thing.

In response, Shaffy Bello said that she is usually quick to admonish younger people when they do that.

She acknowledged that there are instances when it might be the result of upbringing or even differences in tribes, but she always makes sure to correct them with love.

Shaffy Bello also added that aside from younger people addressing her by her first name, she can’t stand them waving at her in the form of a greeting.

“Usually my response is very simple and I say it with love.
I call them and pull them closer and say, you haven’t earned the right to call me by name.
I have a child as old as you are and even if I don’t have children, you haven’t earned the right and you will never earn that right at your age to call me by name,”
she said in part.
