Man gives free haircut on the street

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young Nigerian barber went online to amaze people with his skill. In a video he shared on his TikTok, the man went on the street with a bag containing his rechargeable clipper and other hair treatment products.

After walking some metres, he saw a man with a full hair and asked if he could barb it for him for free. The man agreed and he got to work.

Setting up beside the road, the young barber gave his best. He carved out a good line at the man's hairline.
