Award winning Nollywood actress, Adesua Etomi Wellington, has sparked reactions with her recent revelation.
The mother of one revealed in a recent interview that she has chosen to stop wearing wigs.
This is coming shortly after she was dragged for ‘haphazardly’ dressing to Kemi Adetiba’s wedding and rocking cornrows.
Replying her critics, Adesua said she has always been a simple lady and feels more comfortable with the hairstyle. She also noted that ancient African women wore braids and were loved for it.
“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 rocks 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.
Saying this so you stop questioning who you are. Embrace it. It’s ok to be yourself. It’s more than ok, It’s great. I’m definitely a millennial. The number of times I’ve had to post and repost this proves it. Gosh.I will still wear wigs when I feel like it sha.”
