Samini, one of Ghana’s most successful and respected popular musicians has added his voice to the trending issue involving Achimota  School and a Rasta Student.

The HighGrade Family boss took to social media to express his opinion on the subject in a lengthy post. To him, though some rules are questionable, rules are rules and the many responsible men and women we see out there have all been shaped and fashioned by various rules, regulations and guidelines either from the home, church, community and in many cases, school. And so therefore he expects Rasta to obey the rules or move on.

He also expressed his shock at the fact that someone’s hair can be a barrier to his education in this year and age. “I must admit I find it strange that in 2021, someone’s rights to education are being questioned over the “construct” of his hair. Not his intellect, not his ability to become a national asset in the areas of Arts, Maths or even the sciences…his HAIR! How will the locks make other students uncomfortable? How will the locs affect his performance? Or wait, will the locs perhaps turn into snakes at midnight and hound other students? Can someone please help me understand why I cannot wear my hair the way I want to school in 2021? Let’s even leave the public schools and turn our focus on the private schools who allow any kind of hair preference on their premises. Do we have any records of any troubles being created? I don’t think so

He however firmly believes that Achimota School which has produced so many prominent people for Ghana knows what she is doing and urges his fellow Rastafarians to let this go.

“I am pretty sure that better than anyone else, they do understand the full construct of their crest. The black and white keys of a piano over an inscription that translates as “That they all may be one”. Is there a better way to express diversity?  To all my dreadlocked (religious or otherwise) out there. Let us not tear each other up or hurl invectives at one of Africa’s greatest educational institutions. Rasta is gentle. Rasta is wise. Rasta is strong. Rasta is obedient. Rasta understands and follows rules. Rasta is disciplined. If Achimota school cannot take Rasta, let Rasta move on”

Samini concluded by appealing to the Rastafarian community to make it a top priority to  contribute to cater for the affected students through private school whiles they gather funds to build their own.
