Kamba gospel musician Justus Prince Myello has claimed being discriminated against by churches because of his latest hairstyle.
Speaking to Gotta.news on Tuesday, February 11, Myello said that this week, two of his performances were canceled because of his dreadlocks.
He noted that a lot of people are thinking he has abandoned Christ by having dreadlocks.
“This Saturday I was to perform at AIC Kasina but I was called by the pastor and told not to come and also refund the KSh 20,000, I had received as token appreciation,” said Myello.
“On February 16, I was to perform at AIC Jericho but that too won’t happen because of the Same issue. People think I have conformed to the world but that’s not true. Christ lives in the heart, not the hair,” he added.
The controversial artist added that people should stop judging him because of his hairstyle adding that the dreadlocks were temporary and he will undo them at the time of his choosing.
“I’m not a rastaman let the people know that. This was meant for the album I was released last week and anytime I may undo them. I was doing urban music that’s why I had to rock an urban look,” he said.
He claimed the buzz surrounding his new hairstyle had contributed to his new song Niongoze rising on YouTube’s trending videos.
