Nigerians With Dreadlocks, We Know All What You’re Tired Of Hearing.

January 29, 2020

You know how the only thing sure in life are death and taxes? Well, if you’re a Nigerian walking around with dreadlocks then two things are for sure certain for you: stress and one or seven attacks from SARS.

Even though the people at the back will probably need to hear this one or seven times, leave people with dreadlocks again. Their hair is just that – hair. There’s nothing about dreadlocks that makes a person more prone to crime or smoking weed, so stop with the stereotyping!

Now in case you’re confused, here are some of the things dread heads are absolute sick and tired of hearing:

When will you cut it?

Around the same time I’ll cut you, if you keep asking dumb questions

Your hair smells great, I wasn’t expecting that.

Can I smack yah face?

Do you wash your hair?

Do you have a brain?

Do you smoke weed?


😑

Are you an activist?

What?

If you have dreadlocks, what are you absolutely sick of hearing?
