Nollywood actress, Faithia Balogun has had a very big chop as part of her role for a new movie, Shola Arikusa.
This will be the second time the actress will be shaving off all her hair for a movie; she did it first for her self-produced movie, Makomi that came out in 2001.
When she was asked why she decided to take the daring role, the 47-year-old mother of two said, “When I was approached by the director that my role will require me to scrap off my hair totally, I did not think about it twice before I agreed to playing the role since it’s what I have done before. I’m a trained actor who can interpret roles and that is I am doing on this project too.”
However, Faithia is not going to let her new bald look hinder her stylishness as she intends to rock it to the max. She said, “Whether you have grown hair or not, the way you rock them matters a lot, going bald now does not mean I would not be fashionable; after this movie check me out on red carpet events.”
Shola Arikusa is directed by Okiki Afolayan and features Yinka Quadri, Femi Adebayo, Odunlade Adekola, Toyosi Adesanya , amongst others.
