Nigerian Lady Almost Committed Suicide Because Of Her Tribal Marks, Find Out All Epaz Has To Say
A Nigerian lady identified as Epaz, says she almost committed suicide because of her tribal marks. The fashion designer who is really creative in her work says people tell her that they find her tribal marks repulsive. In fact, some think she is uneducated and tell her that they pity her. Thankfully, she’s not.
Read her post below.
“Gone are these things; there had been cases where I wanted to commit suicide due to inhibition in educational pursuits due to my tribal marks.
When many people say they find my tribal marks repulsive. Even in my school days , they called me all sorts of names because of the severe tribal marks my dad put on my face.
I had my first boyfriend at age 21. (My baby father) all because I considered myself to be the ugliest girl in the world. Chai !!! One of the greatest thing that has happened to me was getting educated and my ability to communicate in fluent English language otherwise it would have been disastrous for me, so disastrous!!! Some people when they see me they assumed I am uneducated and start saying they pity me, I shake my head sadly then.
Some years ago all I felt was resentment towards my parents for giving my siblings and I such scars in the first place.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve been embarrassed by them.
At a time I have to lower the standard of the kind of husband i would have loved to marry but I have a daughter now and cared less about settling down.
Fuckboys available Abeg 😂😂😂😂😂 I won’t let these deep horizontal marks on my face hindered me from getting anything I wanted.
I’m so over it now because I gat no time for pity party for myself again. I love how you all ginger me to be bolder and love myself just the way I am, tribal marks or no tribal marks.
Impacting lives and Money making is my new hobby now.

On how she started her line of business, Epaz says what many considered to be her flaws, became her cornerstone. She wrote:
“Let me tell y’all a real life story of how my flaws became my cornerstone.
I started beading on fabrics by chance; I went for a job interview for the position of a shop assistant, the lady said ” I will say it nicely, you can’t be the shop assistant because of your tribal marks.
Customers might look down on you” . I said “okay ” Then she said but will you like to learn how to bead on fabrics?? I said yeah!!! So I started my journey on beading on fabrics.
My tribal marks paved way for me, my flaws which gave me insecurities gave me my chosen career. What I thought is embarrassing gave me my chosen career.
I thank God for everything.”
