This comes after the mother of one was chastised for her unassuming appearance at filmmaker Kemi Adetiba’s wedding on Saturday, April 24, 2022, in Lagos.

Adesua, who was in attendance at Kemi Adetiba’s wedding last month with her husband, Banky W, wore her natural hair in cornrows for the occasion. Critics, on the other hand, were critical of her look, claiming that her hairstyle made her appear unprofessional.

In what appeared to be a reaction to the outrage, the actress revealed that she has been wearing her natural hair more since it makes her feel more like herself than wigs.

She went on to say that she’s doing it for the simple girls, and that she hopes to inspire them to be confident in their natural hair and African styles.

“I’ve been intentionally sporting cornrows a lot lately.” When I wear braids, plaits, or leave my hair down, I feel like my most true self. If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll understand what I’m talking about. You’d realize this isn’t something new.

In general, I prefer to keep things simple. Whether it’s through my clothes, my hair, or my way of life.

I hope you look at me with pride, knowing that the rows our forefathers wore are still a source of pride now. I hope you see me and rock yours proudly if you want to, but most importantly, may you know that you are more than your hair, no matter how you wear it, and more than your clothes, no matter what styles you wear.

This is something I do for the girls who are thought ‘too simple.’ There’s nothing wrong with keeping things simple. We may appear to be’simple,’ but there is nothing simple about us. Raise your glass if you are.

This is being spoken in order for you to cease doubting who you are. Accept it. It’s fine to be who you are. It’s not just ok; it’s fantastic. I am unmistakably a millennial. It’s evident by the amount of times I’ve had to post and repost this. Gosh. When I feel like it, I’ll still wear wigs sha.” She penned an essay.
