Reactions As Video of Catholic Priest Cutting Hair Of Actress Chioma Chijoke Surfaces Online
A sizzling video has surfaced on social media, capturing a Nigerian priest meticulously shaving the hair of Nollywood actress Chioma Chijoke Anosike, better known as Nwuka.
The clip, shared by the actress on her Instagram page on August 26th, shows a mesmerizing sequence of spiritual rituals conducted on the bereaved actress by the reverend father, all under the watchful eyes of her family members.
As recounted by the actress, the recent months have been an intense whirlwind of emotions for both her and her entire household, stemming from the tragic loss of her husband.
Nwuka goes on to extend her heartfelt appreciation to her colleagues and devoted fans who have reached out with unwavering support during these trying times.
Sharing the video, she captioned it: “It is no longer news that i felt life in a way I have never felt it before, life taught me a deep lesson which I’ll simply say is live life, be happy but in all that you do, live right because you do not own this life you have this minute.
“Death is inevitable as it took my husband from me, a person I’m supposed to live this life with and for, but it may seems as though God has his reasons and man can’t even dare to question his authority.
“Life has been quite a whole lot for me these passing months and oh i originally thought i wouldn’t be able to live past the next day after my husband’s demise but like i said earlier, it may seem as though God has his reasons. It has indeed been a roller coaster of emotions for me and my entire household, friends, family and well wishers.
“Only if i can take back the hands of time. Nevertheless, I want to wholeheartedly thank everyone that has been there for me and with me all through this trying time in my life journey.
“From my colleagues to family to friends to fans and everyone who has in one way or the other dropped a comforting word for me, put me in prayers, checked on me and made sure this new phase isn’t taking a toll on my fragile heart. I bless God for you all in my life as a person, group and organization, I say a very big thank you and may the Good lord come through for you all just as you have come through for me all through this mourning period up until now that I’m over and done with it and giving room for a better future ahead.”
The video, as anticipated, provoked diverse responses on the internet, with an Instagram user suggesting that Catholics should have evolved beyond the traditional practice of shaving widows’ hair as a spiritual rite.
Meanwhile, many sent prayers to Chioma Chijoke to provide her with the strength she needs as she continues to grieve her husband’s passing.
