Young and talented Nigerian Singer, Modupe Oreoluwa Oyeyemi Ola, popularly known as Mo’Cheddah in a recent interview with Punch Nigeria, spoke about her new hair brand and style for her latest song and the concept behind it.
“It does not have a name, but my stylist says people call it the Mo’Cheddah hairstyle. She says anytime anybody comes to her salon to make this style, they just say they want the Mo’Cheddah hairstyle”. Mo’Cheddah said, when she was asked about the name of her hairdo which seems unusual.
The singer went on to explain the concept behind it saying; “It does not hide my face. I feel it makes me look fierce. My friend used to make this hairstyle some years ago. I never wore short hair, I like long hair. I decided to try something different and when I did, I fell in love with the style immediately. I never stopped doing it after that. My friend still teases me till date that I am going to pay her for copyright infringements”.
However, when it was inquired of her, the reason(s) for her long break from the music industry, the young diva replied, “it was deliberate. I just needed a break. I had done so much. I had done a lot of travelling, shows, awards, meetings, brand ambassadorship, I just needed the break. I was in school as well and shortly before I graduated, I was beginning to lose it.
I needed the break to get in touch with myself because I did not know what was going on around me anymore. I did not even know what class my nephew was. It seemed as if I was rushing through life and I was not learning anything. I just realised that if I did not take that break, I was going to crash and I would not be able to get up again. I took the break to clear my mind, grow as an individual and focus on myself”.
Ehh, the hair is fine but I would just stay with my braids because Lagos is filled with gutters and I don’t want to fall into any.
But she went on that long break just to know her nephew’s class? odinma! I’m sure it was worth it.
