“I took it off basically because; I actually had to suit the corporate world. I’m actually working at the Parliament House now and obviously in that jurisdiction, they frown on locks. Especially when you are in a high office like that,” he revealed.

Borax further added that “I had to contemplate about it for over a month and I asked myself that if I should cut the locks, what will be my next image, should I have to strip off my whole hair? Then I said to myself, if I had to chop off the locks, then I think I’ll go for this cute afro.”

“When I was at the peak of my career, I was making much money and in life, there are ups and downs. So at the moment, I’m not at the peak of my career therefore, I need to get some primary source of income to support my music.” Borax told Joy News.
