Musician KiDi has claimed he was rejected by the headquarters of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana when he was posted there to undertake his national service.
‘‘It was the Presbyterian Headquarters…I didn’t choose it…That was my first posting. I remember that day walking into that building and those guys rejected me. They were like, ‘no you don’t look like you were supposed to work here. Are you sure they posted you here? Go back.
“I was wearing a nice shirt. I dressed like I was going to somebody’s job. They said my hair. They just looked at me and judged me that I cannot work there,” he told Accra-based Hitz FM.
He added he had to be reposted to the national service headquarters where he eventually undertook the mandatory service.
“The second posting is where I got, NSS Headquarters. I felt really bad. It was really sad for me. Why would you just look at somebody and judge them,” the singer said.
National Service is mandatory for all graduates of tertiary schools in Ghana.
