Nollywood actress, Fathia Balogun has gone bald again for a new movie titled Shola Arikusa.
This is coming 15 years after she went bald for her own production Makomi which was a hit movie .
Speaking on why she decided to go bald again, the 47-year-old actress 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’.
She’s however not the first Nollywood actress to go bald. Mercy Johnson, Chika Ike, Uche Jombo, Halima Abubakar and others have all tried the bald look at some point in their careers.
Shola Arikusa is a movie directed by Okiki Afolayan, it’s currently being shot in Akure and it stars actors like Yinka Quadri, Femi Adebayo, Odunlade Adekola, Toyosi Adesanya, amongst others.
