Who else feels this dreadlock trend is getting a little tired? Well, it seems the local celebs are not feeling the vibe if a new trend is anything to go by.
It started with with husky-voiced Radio Maisha presenter Nick Odhiambo who surprised his fans after shedding this dreads and now comedian Obinna has done the same thing.
But unlike the multi-talented radio star, Obinna was paid a cool Sh 1million for the shave, in what started as a joke.
SDE reports that comedian Obinna was dared by a friend of his by the name Richie, to shave his dreadlocks and get Sh 500,000 in return.
Obinna asked for double the offer to which Richie agreed. A video seen by the publication shows a shocked Obinna ask, “Richie are you serious? Richie are you serious if I go with this money you will not call me?”. “I am serious,” Richie replies. He then gets the scissors and cuts Obinna’s hair.
When he was asked about it later, Obinna said he could not believe it, that the whole thing started as a joke. That when his friend got out the money, it got real.
“I can always grow back my dreads or buy new ones.” The comedian said.
