Nollywood actress, Linda Osifo, has revealed on an Instagram post Thursday that she was teased badly as a kid in elementary school because of her tribal marks.

The actress said she considered undergoing surgery to remove them. In Canada, she was asked if she was scratched by lions in Africa.

She said these teasing made her feel ugly and weird because she did not even understand why she had them in the first place.
