Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young man, Adeyinka, who went viral in 2021 as photos of him giving Burna Boy a fine haircut surfaced, spoke about his craft and recent success in an interview.
The brilliant barber said his journey in the profession started two years ago when he was seeking admission into school and knew his parents were not financially buoyant to sponsor his education.
As a way out, he became an apprentice at a barbershop to learn the trade before his school would resume. With a passion to become better, the young man self-taught himself by watching tutorials on both YouTube and Instagram.
