Ghanaian highlife and afrobeat musician, Dennis Nana Dwamena is popularly known as KiDi has revealed that the Presbyterian Church rejected his National Service posting because of his hairstyle.
In an interview with Franky 5 on ‘This Is Gospel’ on Hitz FM, he revealed that staff at the Headquarters of the Church in Accra, turned him away when he went to complete his registration.
‘‘It was the Presbyterian Headquarters…I didn’t choose it…That was my first posting. I remember that day walking into that building and those guys rejected me. They were like, ‘no you don’t look like you were supposed to work here. Are you sure they posted you here? Go back’,” he recounted.
According to KiDi, the Church didn’t allow him to work in the organisation because of his hairdo.
“I was wearing a nice shirt. I dressed like I was going to somebody’s job. They said my hair. They just looked at me and judged me that I cannot work there,” he disclosed.
The Odo hitmaker added that he went to the National Service Secretariat for reposting after the bitter rejection.
“The second posting is where I got, NSS Headquarters. I felt really bad. It was really sad for me. Why would you just look at somebody and judge them,” KiDi quizzed.
