Lynx entertainment act Dennis Nana Dwamena known in showbiz as KiDi says the Presbyterian Church rejected his National Service posting when he was posted there because of his hairstyle.
The singer in an interview on Hitz FM said the staff of the Church turned him away when he went to complete his registration.
‘‘It was the Presbyterian Headquarters…I didn’t choose it…That was my first posting. I remember that day walking into that building and those guys rejected me. They were like, ‘no you don’t look like you are supposed to work here. Are you sure they posted you here? Go back’,’ he recounted.
According to KiDi, the staff of the Church refused to allow him to work in the organization because of his hairstyle.
“I was wearing a nice shirt. I dressed like I was going to somebody’s job. They said my hair. They just looked at me and judged me that I cannot work there,” he said.
The ‘Gal Dem Sugar’ singer added that he went to the National Service Secretariat for reposting after the bitter rejection.
“The second posting is where I got, NSS Headquarters. I felt really bad. It was really sad for me. Why would you just look at somebody and judge them?” KiDi quizzed.
He was however happy that his National Service posting to the Presbyterian Headquarters was unsuccessful because he could not have worked with people who were very judgmental.
KiDi is also disturbed that Christians preach love but easily drive people away from the Church with their actions.
