Nigerian veteran singer, John Odafe Asiemo, better known as Daddy Showkey, has explained why he finds it difficult to cut his dreadlocks.
Daddy Showkey disclosed that he did not keep his hair to become a ‘Rasta-man’ but as a covenant with God, The singer alleged that he made a covenant to God that he would not cut his hair if he made him rich.
He further added that during a Sunday service at the God Bless Nigeria Church led by Pastor Tony Rapu, God moved him from the ghetto to grace, and he, in turn, decided to keep his hair too.

He said: “Today, people call me ‘Daddy Showkey,’ but they don’t know my story. If I can be an example to others, there is no one here that cannot be used as an example. I used to be called ‘John Pako.’ I cannot believe that people would want to relate to me now.
I promised God that if he moved me from the ghetto to grace, I would never cut my hair. I challenged God that if he could make me successful, I would keep my hair as a covenant with him.
Truly, God has overdone it over and again. I did not keep the dreadlocks to be a ‘rasta-man.’ It is because of the covenant I have with God. I have been offered millions of naira to cut my hair but I refused because I had made a covenant with God”.
