Man braids wife's hair in Canada

Meanwhile, previously reported that a Nigerian man had braided his wife's hair in Canada.

The man's wife noted in the caption of a TikTok clip that a single salon visit in Canada could cost her at least N217k. To save money, the man braided the hair himself. Netizens who watched the video said he did an excellent job.

In the video posted on Agatha Anubalu's TikTok handle, the wife sat down and allowed her husband to braid her hair with attachments. When contacted for a comment on the story, Seyi Obasi, a Canadian woman, said it may not cost that much to braid hair in Canada.
