What I’m saying is if you have to look a certain way to be accepted by society, you’re not a Freeborn by Greco-Roman codes. If you say colonialism is over, why are you still culturally colonized? Any man that dictates how you should look controls you, Obviously.
I’m not even talking about the spiritual significance of long hair especially to melanated people. That one usually leads to heated debate and controversy. It is with elation that I observe the preponderance of baby dreads all over Nigeria. So much that it became a cause of alarm for the federal government. Why, I don’t know. Either they are task masters or they don’t know any better. After all, they sported their funky Afros and history can testify that their youth was Nigeria’s finest moment.
It has simply been echoing Ludacris’ popular chorus “how low can you go” ever since till date.
The younger generation is only trying to grow longer, in essence going farther than their fathers.
Nigerian youths are breaking their mental chains in record numbers on a daily basis. It portends great things for the future and we should all be glad.
