Responding to why he decided to change his hairstyle on Kastle Drive, he said “My new hairstyle is not because of my new album Son of Africa per se. My hair became bushy and I decided to leave it like that. Because during the times of the coronavirus lockdown I didn’t want any barber to come to my house to trim my hair.”
Kuami Eugene said he moved his parents to live with him during the coronavirus lockdown. However, to prevent anyone from infecting them with the disease, he decided not to allow any barber to come to his house.
“During the lockdown, I moved my parents to my house to live with me so I decided not to allow any barber to come to my house to infect my parents with the virus in case they’re carrying the disease,” he told Amansan Krakye on Kastle FM in Cape Coast.
“So during the quarantine, I left my hair to grow and I was braiding it small small. When the lockdown was over I realized my hair was already grown and so I decided to leave it this way. But then again I can wake up one day and have a change of mind.”
