Ghana’s popular reggae dancehall artiste Samini has and is appealing to Ghana Education Service(GES) to deal strictly with the Headmaster of Ebenezer Senior High School who by mistake allegedly discriminated on him during his kind visit to the school.
Samini spoke to Sammy Forson on cosmopolitan Mix on Wednesday on this same issue that he believes that an educationalist who discriminates against people is not worthy to be ahead of a school.
“I wanted to get in touch with Dansoman High Schools in order to connect with the children and students and educate them on the importance of education and issues about the Creative Arts Industry. We had already written letters and they accepted the time we would come.”
“The headmaster of Ebenezer Senior High School decided that because of my dreadlocks, I Samini, I am not fit to come and speak to the students of Ebenezer Senior High School which is in Dansoman, about five minutes away from my mother’s house. Am doing my school tour in Dansoman so I went through my own school which is Saint Margret Mary, went through the technical school, the vocational school and then decided to visit Ebenezer Senior high school as well.”
The ‘ Obaa ‘ hitmaker said the headmaster had asked if he (Samini) wouldn’t be able to do music without dressing his way.
Samini said, however, he was dressed in an Untamed t-shirt, a black pair of jeans and trainers from Adidas.
He said in reply that none of his body parts was in exposure and that he had dressed modestly for the day.
“If Ghana Education Service is listening or anyone listening, that is of high authority and can handle this question, I don’t think that man is fit to be headmaster of a secondary school. You should ask the students they don’t want him there,” Samini said.
The artiste also added that he would be seeking legal advice on the action to take against the headmaster
