As reported earlier, Samini not long ago was denied the chance to speak to students of Ebenezer Senior High School because of his dreadlocks.
Recounting his ordeal in an interview with Citi News, Samini said the headmaster whose name was not mentioned throughout the conversation, found his hairstyle inappropriate and therefore kicked him out of the school when he and his team went over for an interaction as part of his school tour in Dansoman.
“The headmaster of Ebenezer Senior High School decided that because of my dreadlocks, I was not fit to speak to the students of the school which is in Dansoman where I live, which is 5 minutes from my parents’ home,” he said.

Now, it’s at the back of the discriminatory attitude of the headmaster of Ebenezer Senior High School that the Rastafari Council, Ghana, the umbrella body of members of the Rastafari Faith is appealing to the Ghana Education Service (GES) to deal with the headmaster under discussion.
According to the council, the headmaster of the school, whose name is not yet known should be dealt with because he discriminates against Rastafarians.
In a statement signed by Daddy Bosco who happens to be the president of the Rastafarian Council, he reiterated that claim by the headmaster of Ebenezer Senior High School is an affront on Article 21 (c) of Ghana’s 1992 Constitution that guarantees the rights and liberties of all Ghanaians devoid of religion.
