As the dreadlocks saga continues to gather reactions from Ghanaians and prominent voices alike, a Ghanaian father, Alfred Lawrence Owusu-Ansah, has flexed his son's hair twists.
Owusu-Ansah disclosed that his gifted boy spends time coding and building robots, indicating that his son would not be forced to cut it off his hair.
His remarks come amid the recent brouhaha about the two Rastafarian kids who were denied admittance into Achimota School because of their natural hair.
Responding to reactions from Ghanaians, authorities at the Achimota School disclosed that the hairstyle of the would-be-students who gained admission into the prestigious school through the Computer School Placement System goes against the school's policy on the length of hair students are permitted to grow.

Captioning the images, he said, ''This is my son in whom I am well pleased! Sit there arguing over whether he can take his beautiful natural hair to school in Ghana while he spends his time coding and building robots. Church sef he de take go, na skuul. If St. Augustine's College (Augusco) sef slack, we no go go!''
