He disclosed that his initial reaction when he first entered Mansah’s barbering shop was that of a surprise because he did expect to meet a young girl.

''[When I first entered the shop, I became surprised, indecisive and confused for about a minute]. I didn't know if I was about to endorse child labor, get a messy haircut.''

Okyere said his confusion turned into curiosity, and he began to engage Mansah. Although he remained tentative about her skills, he decided to give her a chance.

''She covered me, lowered the chair and the rest is what you see in pictures,'' Okyere said.

He disclosed that: ''[Mansah is a product of Free education from Swedru, who is working to save money to fund her tertiary education]''.
