Beards is back! Beards is the new sexy.
I still think the beauty of a man is his beard because it depicts manliness (sorry clean shaved guys like me). It’s no news that women love bearded men because bearded men exude a certain appeal. In fact only few female folks will admit that the attractiveness of a man’s face lies in how fuzzy it is. Naija babes know this, even though they wouldn’t admit it shaaaa.
In recent times there’s been an increase in the number of guys we call “beard gang.” These descendants of Ojukwu have been rocking their beards confidently, in expression of their personalities and style.
Well sadly, most folks have issues with this cool trend called “beard gang.” I’ve found that Nigerian parents and elderly folks in general ain’t cool with their wards growing and grooming beard all over the face.
As soon as they spot a little goatie on the faces of their sons, they freak out! Na so body go just dey bite them. If u kon turn ‘beard gang’ dem go say dia pikin don join cult oh...Immediately, there are calls for prayers and counselling. lol.. Everyday you wake up to the same advice. “Your beard is overgrown..trim your beard and look decent!” Oosssh! Let them be jare!
What’s really wrong with something as beautiful and innocent as growing beards? Why does our society see it as a sign of disrespect, irresponsibility and waywardness? Why do we assume that the guys with full beard must be the bad guys?…What has beards got to do with decency?
If you ask me, absolutely nothing! Fashion ain’t limited to clothes and accessory. Beards can be fashionable as well.
Let the beard gangs live!
