Samini details how a Headmaster stopped him from speaking to his students because of his dreadlocks


Reggae and dancehall artiste Samini is appealing to the Ghana Education Service (GES) to deal with the headmaster of a Senior High School who had allegedly discriminated against him during his tour at the school.

According to him, the headmaster had stopped him from speaking to the students because of his dreadlocks.

Samini told Sammy Forson on the Cosmopolitan Mix, on Wednesday that he does not think an educationist who discriminates against people deserves 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

  1. AncientGhana was founded by A priest with Locks. Locks was once the mark of kings and those in some level of priedthood, royalty or leadership etc. Colonialism has made many Africans to toss their own traditions in the trash to adopt European standards. This was an ignorant person to be headmaster
