Jason Njoku has narrated the experience his wife had with a racist Lebanese barber in Lagos who refused to cut her hair.
The Iroko TV, founder, Jason Njoku said his wife, Mary remmy ran into a Lebanese barber in Lagos who refused to cut her hair. His tone quickly went from aggressive to apologetic when his immigration status was questioned. See what he wrote below;
Mrs Njoku wanted to get a hair cut in Ikeja GRA. (I cut the one she is currently sporting and have been away this week) Saw a Lebanese barber tending the salon. He aggressively raised his voice
‘this is not one of those your Nigerian salons where you people pay N200 for haircut’. It was just her so she felt a little upset and definitely threatened. She left. His lucky I wasn’t in Nigeria.
Anyway. Straight to the police station to make a complaint. He was invited for questioning. He started with ‘he doesn’t cut Nigerian hair.’ Once they asked about his immigration status he started begging that he was so sorry. Offered Mrs Njoku, DPO everyone free haircuts 😒😒😒
Mrs Njoku, recently spoke about sexual harassment. She wrote;
Dear #instafam I need your help. Again. What is the Nigerian definition of sexual harassment? I was standing with a female producer who was wearing a leggings with a carmel toe. and a Very prominent male producer Walked past and said I dey see your Virgina (in pidgin) if I hol am en, I go F…. am tire. 😮😮On the streets of Lagos! I was deeply offended. I wanted to say something but the Lady just said ‘no mind am the man sabi talk rubbish’ and she immediately changed the topic like nothing happened. I couldn’t cry more than the bereaved. But I am really sad. Biko isn’t this sexual harassment? Doesn’t she know? Or its just accepted.
