Ukrainian singer Natalia Dzenkiv who is also known as ‘Lama’ revealed she was stopped by the border guards at passport control travelling back home from Turkey.
Baffled officials doubted that the singer who is 41 years old, was using someone else’s passport because she looked ‘too young’, a story by Mirror said.
Because of her impressive youthful appearance, airport staff thought she’s only 20 years younger and using an older woman’s passport.
The Ukrainian star said: “When I found out the reason for my arrest, I even started laughing as it was [the] age in my passport.”
“I am already used to compliments about the way I look, but I couldn’t have imagined that it might be a reason for detaining me.”
Fortunately, pop/rock band Lama’s fans were on hand to convince officials she was who she claimed to be and when certain people of the public recognized her, they started to ask for autographs and selfies.
Finally she was allowed to pass through.
As for her secret to looking fabulously young for her age, fan Oleg Petrov said:
“She is vegetarian and only eats fruits and vegetables; this is why she looks so good.”
