When 3 Nollywood damsels went bald

By Ayo Onikoyi

The trio of Ebube Nwagbo, Angela Okorie and Chita Agwu has a lot in common and the first of those qualities must be beauty, brawn and plenty of brain.  But what on earth would make the three women go bald, looking like Hindus having  a sort of religious reverie?

The answer isn’t to be a needle-in-a-haystack kind of thing as one of the damsels, Chita Agwu has revealed they are shooting a film in Owerri about widows who kill their husbands for money. The movie which is titled “Widows Cot” has 14 Nollywood beauties who shaved their hair to meet the requirements of the movie script.

The movie is still being shot and already the talking point has been about Ebube, Angela and Chita shaving their hair for money as Chika Ike was recently taunted for shaving her hair for cheap money even when some reports had it that she was paid N5 million for the effort.

But Chita on her part has said that shaving hair for movie roles is not a new thing in the movie industry, it is part of the trade that actors  must go through image transformation just to fit in for a particular role. When asked how much they were paid, she simply said “They tried”.

Ebube, Chita, and Angela aren’t the only ones to shave their hair for movie roles there has been many others in the past. Mercy Johnson, Halima Abubakar, Nuella Njubigbo,  Oge Okoye, Uche Jombo, Adaora Ukoh and a host of others have done so in the past.
