Do you remember the hit songs Aseɛhɔ, Nana Yaa and Tine Wosa? Natty Borax, a hip-life artiste who used to be one of the most sought after in the country, composed them.
He went to a self-imposed exile only to resurface In 2014 with the new the name Big Borax and dreadlocks to match his new brand.
Speaking in an interview with JoyNews’s MzGee, the musician who now keeps an Afro hair, explained why he had to cut his dreadlocks.
I took it off basically because; I actually had to suit the corporate world. I’m actually working at the parliament house now and obviously in that jurisdiction, they frown on locks. Especially when you are in a high office like that.
I had to contemplate about it for over a month and I asked myself that if I should cut the locks, what will be my next image, should I have to strip off my whole hair? Then I said to myself, if I had to chop off the locks, then I think I’ll go for this cute afro.
Borax was the first hip-life musician to collaborate with legendary Daddy Lumba. Born Nathaniel Adjetey Larbi, the musician revealed why he is no longer a force to reckon with in the industry and now works in parliament.
When I was at the peak of my career, I was making much money and in life, there are ups and downs. So at the moment, I’m not at the peak of my career therefore, I need to get some primary source of income to support my music.
