Wife of celebrated hip-hop singer, 2Face idibia, Annie Idibia, has shaved her hair in a bid to create awareness for breast cancer among women in the society and the importance of early detection through regular check-ups.
The month of October is mostly dedicated for the campaign and since the beginning of the month, several campaigns have been organised for cancer awareness.
The likes of Chioma Akpota, Omoni Oboli, Halima Abubakar, Chidinma Ekile and many others have participated in their campaigns for cancer in October 2015.
Annie, as part of her own contribution, shaved her hair.
She noted that, “Recent studies have shown that 20% of breast cancer is discovered by self examination rather than mammography and we must realise that cancer is not a respecter of persons. It could happen to anyone, even I Annie Idibia.
"Imagine the lives that will be saved if more women physically checked themselves on a regular basis, imagine if we could stand against breast cancer by fighting the odds via self examination. Let's save the life of a woman today, let 's examine ourselves today!”
