Popular Ghanaian actor cum movie producer, Eddie Nartey, has finally decided to cut his dreadlocks off.
The deadlocks hairstyle he has been keeping since 2017 is one that has occasionally seen people bash him because it makes him apparently look like a bad person.
Somewhere in February 2018, Eddie Nartey came out to angrily reply to people who had issues with him for keeping the rasta hairstyle.
In that reaction, he stated that he did not care about what people said about him because he is out there to do things that make him happy rather than to please people.
In his words: “When I finally locked my hair, it was small and needed time to grow. I remember the criticisms, the backlashes and the insults that came with this new look. Many could not just accept the change. “I liked you when you didn’t have Rasta, you look ugly with this Rasta, go back to you old look. This and many more were said to me by friends and most people I didn’t even know existed but For the sake of social media, they could express their opinions about what I choose to do with my life. But why should I stop doing things that makes me happy because someone else doesn’t like it? How does the style of my hair affect paying your bills? Well I was blind and deaf to those opinions, I didn’t listen to NATINS. Today, the same friends & critics express their love for my hair. Some say e nice Papa, dnt ever cut it, others say “your hair come roff.. e dey bee keke, I wish I can do same. Morale of my story: don’t let people’s opinion affect your dreams and plans. Do what makes you happy cuz the end of the day, whether Rasta or Sakora, it’s your head.”
Well, despite that strong defense back then, Eddie woke up on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, and decided to change that look entirely at the salon.
He shared a video of the moment he went to get the new style with the caption; “Finally, The Rasta came off”.
