Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Prior to colonisation, African women wore traditional headgear or wrap to indicate their marital status and social standing.
Globalblackhistory.com writes that in traditional African culture, women have always covered their hair.
However, when the colonialists came to Africa they neither respected African traditions or valued them and banned traditional African headgear for women.
As a result, headgear in a work setting in some parts of Africa became associated to maids and nannies.
Fast-forward to 2019, African women wear their headgear with pride for special events including traditional marriages, funerals, weddings, parties and other notable events.
In a funny twist, YEN.com.gh, has sighted photos of handsome men, cute babies and women participating in a headgear challenge on social media.
Amahki Sandhra started the ‘duku’ challenge in a known Facebook group which has taken over social media.
Handsome men and cute babies proved how admirable they could appear in traditional headgear.
Here are some looks.

Ashesi University caught up with five sets of twins and asked them to share insights on how they navigate life on campus.
