A Benue-born celebrity hairstylist is over the moon after singer Davido submitted his head to him for a haircut.
The stylist named Simon Yisa took to Facebook to celebrate his feat, even as his friends made numerous posts congratulating him.
A Nigerian hairstylist cannot contain his joy after giving a top Nigerian musician, Davido, a haircut. Simon Yisa who hails from Benue state is a professional hairstylist based in Lagos.
The hairstylist is a mass communication graduate from Benue State University. Many of the people who saw Simon’s photo testified that he is a good barber.
He has dominated discussions on the social media space in his home state of Benue.
Simon has taken to Facebook to celebrate his feat, remembering how he was despised by people who referred to him as an ordinary barber.
The happy man said the “ordinary barber” is now doing great things, which apparently also includes barbing Davido’s hair. His words:
“I remembered sometimes ago in Dunamis Street just as a street hustler (barber). This regular passerby on the street called me an ordinary barber. I laughed but felt so bad that particular day. To cut the long story short “the ordinary barber” now holds a bachelor’s degree in mass communication and still doing wonders around the world with his ordinary barbering skills. Funny how people motivate me in weird ways ! Anyways it’s a new year and the year is looking good already. #OBO WAY.”
Davido’s head is a great head
Many of his friends who made several Facebook posts to celebrate with Simon seem to be in agreement that Davido’s head is one of the greatest heads in Nigeria and that for a stylist to touch it, means a lot. One of his friends, Ben Ten Ufum said in a Facebook post:
“So last year my guy Simon Yisa lose his spot at the most celebrated hair clinic in Lagos simply because, he resumed back to complete his degree program in BSU after COVID. My guy went back to the same place and because he is unavoidably good he was accepted back after some really tough times.
“A few months after the struggle, he kept sharing beautiful stories with me. Everyday, I see him barb one celebrity to another. Today, the OBO me and him spent years loving his music and admiring him from afar sat so relaxed leaving his whole head for him to do as he please.”
