Ghanaian comic actor, Ras Nene, also known as Dr. Likee has said that he cut down his dreadlocks because he wanted to venture into comedy but he is still a Rastafarian by heart.
Speaking in an interview on JoyPrime, Ras Nene revealed that he wanted to prove to the world that he is versatile since he is widely known for his dreadlocks.
He said that he kept his dreadlocks because he mostly plays the role of a villain in all his movies. He added that he got rid of them just to rebrand himself as a comedian.
“I’m Rastafarian at heart, I cut down my dreadlocks because I overused it for action film roles,” he said.
“So, I sat down one day and decided to rebrand myself and prove the world wrong. I cut my dreadlocks start my comedy career,” he added.
Ras Nene also took the chance to advise his fans to achieve their goals against all odds. He advised them not to listen to what people will say about them.
“As a human being, once in a while, you should learn. Do not let anyone discourage you. Do not listen to what people will say and continue what you are doing.”
“There were a lot of big stars who discouraged me when I started comedy and advised me to continue with action films roles. But God has blessed me today,” he added.
