Nollywood screen diva, Fathia Balogun has gone bald again in a new film titled ‘Shola Arikusa’. This is coming 15 years after she went bald for her own production ‘Makomi’ which was a hit movie.
The light skinned actress and proud mother of two is not relenting in bringing out the best of character in her.
When asked her decision to go bald again, she 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 accepted to playing the role since it’s what I have done before. Am a trained actor who can interpret roles and that I am doing on this project?
When further asked if she would not look old fashioned with new look, Fathia was quick to note that whether you have grown hair or not, the way you rock them matters a lot, adding that “going bald now does not mean I would not be fashionable; after this movie, check me out on red carpet events”.
‘Shola Arikusa’ is however directed by Okiki Afolayan and has cast that includes Yinka Quadri, Femi Adebayo, Odunlade Adekola, Toyosi Adesanya, amongst others. The movie is currently being shot in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
