This Annie Idibia’s Daring Breast Cancer Photo Shoot Drives The Message Home


Thumbs up to Annie Idibia! We are a bunch of super proud fans right now.

She teamed up with fast rising makeup artist, Banjo Laide of ArabyLaide and photographer, Emmanuel Oyeleke for a breast cancer inspired photo shoot tagged #FightTheOdds.

The shoot was dreamed up to help raise awareness for cancer and promote self examination.


Annie did not only shave her head for the shoot, she went topless and without makeup. The pictures are raw and show that breast cancer respects no one.

Begin your self examination today!

At the age of 18 I had a breast cancer scare as I noticed a hard lump on my left breast and a swelling occurred,after being examined I discovered it was a lump and the doctor scheduled an appointment for it  to be removed but on the day of the surgery it was a miracle as it dissappeared,it resurfaced again and I had no option but to do a mammogram at the end of the day it was discovered I had high prolactin level,a disorder that causes the pituitary gland to produce more prolactin than normal,although I was cancer free the incidence was a wake up call on the importance of regular self examination because of this I decided to team up with nollywood actress/entrepreneur @annieidibia1 and ace photographer @emmanueloyeleke to create this look with the project called #fighttheodds portraying that anyone can be a victim of cancer even a celebrity.s/o to the whole team who made this work. photography : @emmanueloyeleke make up: @arabylaide @arabridals creative direction: @olabanke03 bts📷: @dolzzee
