You would think that Bishop Daniel Obinim of the International God’s Way Church and humour merchant, Funny Face real name Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng couldn’t possibly have anything in common but you would be sorely mistaken for these two men have a common bond.
You see one can have a say but nature surely will have its way and this is the truism eluding these two.
Unlike Ghana’s Deputy Captain and West Ham United’s player, Andre Dede Ayew who recognized the erosion of hair on his scalp and rightly chose to henceforth have a clean shave of his head, Angel Obinim and the Swagon Papa, stubborn as they are, are fighting a losing battle.
You just have to look closely to notice the Angel who has supposedly healed many and appeared in numerous dreams is using perm creams to fight the balding happening on his head. If the creams had been successful in the past, they are no longer able to contain the balding despite several efforts to maintain hair on the patchy ground.
For Funny Face, his situation is no better. In the past, the balding was inconspicuous but as he ages, the secret is giving way. With wealth now in his bosom, Funny has tried all efforts including generous applications of perm creams but the result has been shambolic.
Perhaps Funny Face and Bishop Obinim might not have blunt people around to hand them the obvious truth that they are fooling no one with their efforts to shield their balding heads. The time to man-up and shave off those remnants of hair on their scalps and join the ‘Sakora Heads’ including Kwame Sefa Kayi, Nana Akufo-Addo, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Okudzeto Ablakwa, Pat Thomas and Dr. Duncan is now.
