The celebrated dancehall artiste says he will never shear his locks and will follow the example of colleagues such as Kojo Antwi, Reggie Rockstone, Ekow Micah, Rocky Dawuni, Nat Brew and Afro Moses who have kept their locks for almost two decades.
Samani, who has been wearing dreadlocks for almost a decade, told Showbiz last week: “I am keeping my dreadlocks for the rest of my life because, it is African, it is masculine and it symbolizes strength”.
According to the award winning artiste who is currently an ambassador of the telecommunications company MTN, his dreadlocks is his “way of life” and would not under any condition take them off.
He explained, “even though many people think I am a Rastafarian, I’m not. My dreadlocks is just a mark of my identity in showbiz and a part of my branding as an artiste.”
Samini’s dreadlocks look good on him just as his physique which must be the envy of many men, and an attraction to many women. Samini knows that because often he bares it all during performances.
Talking about how he feels when women scream and touch his chest on stage, he said “it really feels good when women rub their hands on my chest. I call for it because ninety percent of my songs are romance-related so I take responsibility for all that and of course when I do that in public it is pure love, no strings attached”.
Responding to a question about how he handles his numerous lady fans, he said “I do not mind or have a problem with people calling me a Ladies Man because I give the ladies what they want and sometimes I go the extra mile to give them more”.
The “akye saa” singer in a sentence, described himself as a bubbling guy who respects women a lot and would not take advantage of people. He also revealed that he has four kids: three girls and a boy.
Expressing his view on the recent brouhaha that was created over his diss song on P. Square’s Alingo song, the MOBO winner said it was a necessary gesture. About the perceived snub by P. Square, he said that the duo’s silence demonstrated a sign of maturity. “I am not surprised that they didn’t react because if it was me, I would not react either”
Samini also revealed in the interview that one thing he hates about himself was procrastination over other to-do things beside his music. “When it is time for my music I do not have time for any other thing” he said.
He went on to say that he has been busy since the beginning of this year doing a global mix tape on which he will have coves of hit beats that he likes and has also been working on his fifth album, doing singles, videos and is working on a new artiste on the block named Kofi Kanaata who hails from Takoradi.
In conclusion he said “people should watch out for more exclusive collaborations and I am working on a US, Australia and UK tour. I have got more goodies that would thrill people and blow their minds.”
