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 attended Kemi Adetiba’s wedding with her husband, Banky W, wore her natural hair neatly weaved into cornrows for the occasion. Her appearance, however, was not well received by critics, who felt that her hairstyle made her appear casual.

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

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

“I’ve been wearing cornrows a lot lately on purpose. I feel like my most authentic self when i wear braids, plaits or when I wear my hair out. If you’ve followed me closely, you’d know what I mean. You’d know this isn’t new.

In general, I believe in keeping it simple. Whether it’s from my clothes to my hair, to my lifestyle.
So I, -Wellington, am out here, holding it down for the simple girls. The ones who rock cornrows, the minimalists…

I hope you look at me and feel pride KNOWING that these rows our ancestors wore are still a thing to be proud of. I hope you see me and rocks yours with pride if you want to but above all, may you know that you are more than your hair no matter how you choose to wear it and more than your clothes, no matter what styles you choose to wear.

I do this for the girls deemed ‘too simple’. There is not a single thing wrong with simplicity. We may be ‘simple’ but there is not a single thing simple about us. Raise your glass if you are a SG.

Saying this so you stop questioning who you are. Embrace it. It’s ok to be yourself. It’s more than ok, It’s great. I’m definitely a millennial. The number of times I’ve had to post and repost this proves it. Gosh.I will still wear wigs when I feel like it sha.” She wrote.
