This is an ongoing trend on social media where people are using an app to age themselves. The app, called FaceApp, basically allows you to alter your photo to see how you’ll look when older. It gives three selections – “Old,” “Young,” and “Young 2.”
The most popular is definitely the “Old” option and these Nigerian celebrities have jumped on the #FaceApp Challenge.
Renowned celebrities such as Lasisi Elenu, Demola Gray, Leo Da Silva, Omawunmi and several others have joined the trending social media experiment.

Meanwhile, concerns have been expressed in some quarters over the use of the app. especially its implications on national security and privacy risks.
