Blessing Okagbare’s Wig Falls Off During Long Jump, She Handled It Like A Boss!


Wigs saves us time spent in salons and money spent on constant hairstyle change, but one thing many women who wear wigs fear the most is the embrassment of having it fall off in public!

But, Nigerian Olympic silver medallist, Blessing Okagbare Ighoteguonor did not show any form of embarrassment after her wig fell off her head at the Oslo Diamond League on Thursday.

During the long jump competition, Blessing was running down the track and as she was going to land, her wig fell off her head.

Unperturbed, Blessing made sure was marked before picking up her wig.

In fact, she took her time to wear the wig cap before placing the wig back on her head.

Reacting to the event, Blessing on her Instagram page said,

“When you talk about something for so long and it eventually happened… Oh well, it is what it is then… heads up”
