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 hair 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.”
