Blessing Okagbare’s wig Falls Off during Oslo Diamond League Long Jump…Handles it Like a Boss!



Nigerian Olympic silver medallist Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguonor is presently trending!

Blessing was competing in the Long Jump competition at the Oslo Diamond League on Thursday evening.

At some point during her jump, her wig fell off!

Rather than being embarrassed by the incident, the accomplished Nigerian waited for her mark to be measured and then she picked up her wig and put it back on.

Like a Boss!

The jump measured at 6.21m. Blessing ended the day with a high of 6.48m leaving her in 7th place.
Olympic champion Tianna Bartoletta won with a 6.79m jump.

      What made me even laugh wasn’t her wig falling off, but the commentators comments. He even measured the distance of the hair piece. Lol! Smh!. . .And as for Blessing, I feel the babe jare! Correct lady. She’s more concerned about her career achievements than her looks. Who wig epp sef for this life?

    I love her attitude. Confident and unbothered. That’s the spirit. Those who have time to waste can drink panadol for no headache whilst she concentrates on winning. I see no embarrassment.

    The commentator is hilarious. “She lost her hairpiece. Well the hairpiece does 5.82, Okagbare does 6.2” he measured for the wig join.

    embarrassment ke? she is the definition of unbothered.when u are not a fake person, when u are focused,when u are not moved by petty things, u will rarely or never get embarrassed in life. wetin concern her. She’s more concerned about her score.

    but as an athlete why not carry ur natural hair. wearing a wig will distract you.

      Yeah but if she weren’t unbothered bout her natural hair she would have considered put on a flying wig on. She was embarrassed as hell. She just acting unbothered.
