Nollywood actress, Annie Idibia has taken to social media to hail her colleague, Adesua Etomi Wellington for dumping wigs for cornrows at public functions.
Glamsquad Magazine recalls that Adesua Etomi had taken to her Instagram page to reveal why she chose to dump wigs.
In a lengthy post, she wrote;
“I’ve been wearing cornrows a lot lately on purpose. I feel like my most authentic self when I wear braids, plaits or when I wear my hair out. If you’ve followed me closely, you’d know what I mean. You’d know this isn’t new. In general, I believe in keeping it simple. Whether it’s from my clothes to my hair, to my lifestyle. So I, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, am out here, holding it down for the simple girls.
The ones who rock cornrows, the minimalists… I hope you look at me and feel pride KNOWING that these rows our ancestors wore are still a thing to be proud of. I hope you see me and rock yours with pride if you want to but above all, may you know that you are more than your hair no matter how you choose to wear it and more than your clothes, no matter what styles you choose to wear. I do this for the girls deemed ‘too simple’. There is not a single thing wrong with simplicity. We may be ‘simple’ but there is not a single thing simple about us. Raise your glass if you are a SG.”
Reacting to this, Annie Idibia took to the comment section to hail her as she revealed how she also carry her low cut with so much pride, she wrote;
