- His son also shares his beliefs and fears that if he touches his hair, he might die too

Nguyen Van Chien, a 92-year-old man from Vietnam might have taken the no shave challenge a bit too far.

The elderly guy said his faith does not allow him to cut whatever he was born with and has therefore never seen the inside of a barbershop for 80 years.

According to Van, he also has not washed his dreadlocks for those eight decades over the fear of losing his life.

The nonagenarian told Reuters he coils his hair and ties it up using a scarf whenever he wants to look neat and presentable.

The 92-year-old added that he cannot dare use a comb to straighten, detangle or style his tresses because it goes against his seven gods and nine powers.

"I believe if I cut my hair I will die. I dare not change anything, not even combing it," Van said.

The Vietnamese national revealed back when he was in school, management asked him to cut off his hair and since that went against his faith, he left and never looked back.

At some point in his life, Van had nice thick hair that had a fine black colour. He would comb it whenever he needed to look presentable.

However, things changed when he believed he was called to serve the purpose of his deity.

The man’s son also subscribes to the same faith and said he once witnessed a man die after attempting to use a string to reattach his hair.

Meanwhile, Ella Musangi, Jowie's new flame has been praised by her baby daddy as a kind and upright woman.

David bin Salem said he is not opposed to Jowie referring to himself as his daughter's second father.

He acknowledged that the ex-remandee was officially his little girl's stepdad by virtue of marrying Ella.

“They are married so that does not change the status of things but remember, upon marriage, the stepdad has a right to be called the child’s father,” the dad said.
