In a new interview with HipTV, the actress who last went bald 15 years ago for her self-produced movie "Makomi," revealed she was paid a lot of money to go bald in "Shola Arikusa."

"I'm not exactly allowed to say the figure, but I was paid, like money. I was paid," she said. "When they brought the script, I said 'wow, it has been a while I actually scrapped my hair.' I did that in like 15 years ago when I did my movie "Makomi," and "Makomi" was talk of town then. I loved the script and character, so I said 'let's sit down and talk.' So we did and off I went."
