Rawlings Hair: Why He Has Refused To Shave
Ghanaians have been wondering why the former president, Jerry Rawlings has changed his hairdo making him look like the Nigerian playwright, Wole Soyinka.
In an interview on Accra-based Asaase Radio, the former president revealed that, his Wole Soyinka-like hairdo was as a result of the Covid-19.
He vouched that, until the Covid-19 pandemic goes, his Wole Soyinka-like hairdo will not go.
“I wanted to provide evidence that I was also hibernating and I have decided until it [COVID-19] goes, this hairdo won’t go”,
“As soon as it [COVID-19] goes, yes [my hair will also go],” Mr Rawlings told Kweku Sakyi-Addo in an interview.
It could be recalled that, in the June Fourth Uprising anniversary, the former military leader joked; “For those of you who are wondering about this ‘Moses brush’; if you want, call it ‘Moses broom’, since the President has decided he will use his shaven head to get rid of COVID-19, I will use [my] Moses brush to get rid of it and when it happens, then I think we can go back to our normal look.”
