Samini furious after headmaster turned him away from kids for having dreadlocks


Dancehall artiste Samini is speaking to the Ghana Education Service (GES) to manage the superintendent of a Senior High School who had supposedly oppressed him during his visit at the school.


As indicated by him, the director had prevented him from addressing the understudies in light of his dreadlocks.


Samini told Sammy Forson on the Cosmopolitan Mix, on Wednesday that he doesn't think an educationist who victimizes individuals has the right to head a school.


"I decided to touch base with Dansoman High Schools to interact with the kids and inspire them on the importance of education. We had already written letters and they had approved along with the time we should come.”

“A very unfortunate and naive head told me that he didn't think my appearance was good enough to inspire the kids. He told me specifically my locks," he added.

The ‘Obaa’ hitmaker stated that the headmaster had asked if he (Samini) could not do music without dressing the way he does.

However, Samini said he was dressed in an Untamed t-shirt, a black pair of jeans and Adidas trainers.

He stated that he did not have any of his body exposed but was decently dressed for the day.

"If Ghana Education Service is listening or anybody is listening, that is of high authority and can deal with this issue, I don't think that man is fit to be headmaster of a secondary school. You can ask the students they don't want him there," Samini said.
