Halima Abubakar Explains Why She Shaved Her Hair
We were all surprised when photos of Nollywood actress Halima Abubakar sporting the hairless look surfaced on the internet, some two weeks ago. But unlike many of her colleagues that got their hair shaved off for the purpose of a film role, Halima disclosed that she decided to do away with her hair in honour of cancer survivors.

"I was invited to participate in cancer awareness campaign by Waodiva and MTN. They did workshops on cancer, and a lot of survivors attended. I cried when I saw them.

Shaving my hair is my own way of supporting the call against the dreaded disease," she revealed
