Nigerian man who braids his hair cries out that he is not an internet fraudster
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a Nigerian man who braids hair had cried out on social media that he is not a Yahoo boy.
The man identified as Charles wrote that his love for luxury items and hairstyle doesn't in anyway imply that God isn't the centre of his life.
Charles decried that people who come across him have the stereotypical staredown that he is into internet fraud, football or a music artiste.
The young man added that he is a selfless lover of God and a worker in the church who doesn't go clubbing or even live a fast life.
