It seems like a number of artists have taken it upon themselves to normalise short dyed hair in Ghana for straight men. For a few years it has been very common amongst women. Every now and then there could be an artists that will rock dyed hair for some time. But now with the growing number of artists with dyed hair, this could becomes a normal trend amongst their young Ghanaian followers.
In some parts of the west, low cut Dyed hair amongst black men is something usually seen by camp men, especially when one delves into the colours of pink, yellow, light blue etc. However (based on music) there is no doubt the current front runners of dyed haired artists in Ghana are straight men.
Today we see Medikal, Joey B, and Ghana’s latest musical/comedy sensation Bossom P-Yung all having the same low cut dyed hair look. Although the envelop was pushed by Joey B for months, and Darko Vibes for some years now the two new artists to join the movement, Medikal and Bossom P Yung may just add enough numbers to get the flashy young sector of Ghanaian men entering the low dyed hair trend.
Or alternative just the aspect of dying hair. After all, Shatta Wale is already in the dyed hair movement, with the exception of the fact is isn’t a low cut.
There are a few doubts how well this trend will pick up though, with the majority of their fans being students or in some form of a working environment this might prove to be difficult. Which leaves the CEOs and unemployed fans, none of which will easily pick up on this trend. However we are yet to see.
