Media personality Toke Makinwa has condemned the traditional practice of giving children tribal marks for identification, calling it a form of cruelty inflicted without their consent.

In a series of posts on her X account on Sunday, Makinwa shared her reflections after meeting an influencer with tribal marks. She expressed her disapproval of the age-old custom.

“Today I saw a beautiful influencer with tribal marks and it made me think about the cruelty that culture brought upon us. Marking a child without his/her consent as a means of identification is evil. I know our parents didn’t know any better, but damnnnn!!!!” she wrote.

Makinwa emphasized that while she admires the beauty of people with tribal marks, her main concern is the lack of consent involved in the practice.

“Thank God it’s abolished now. My grandma had tribal marks too. Some on her face and her arms. I wonder what life was like when she was younger walking around with it, though I’m sure a lot of people around her had the same. But thank God it’s canceled now,” she continued.

In response to backlash from some X users, Makinwa clarified that her disapproval was focused on the lack of consent, not the appearance of the marks. “It’s not the beauty or lack of it, but the lack of consent. But yeah, I’ve seen a couple of beautiful people with tribal marks,” she explained.
