Dennis Nana Dwamena known showbiz as Kidi has claimed he was rejected by the Presby Church for his National Service posting because of his hairstyle.
Speaking to Franky 5 on ‘This Is Gospel’ on Accra-based Hitz FM, he claimed that staff at the Headquarters of the Church in Accra, 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 were supposed to work here. Are you sure they posted you here? Go back’,” he recounted.
“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,” Kidi said.
“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,”
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.
