Most of the time, so many people throughout the world have a hard time understanding what it means to be a Rasta.
The world is now growing bigger and faster with technology but we are not here for that today. We are diving into a message some Slay Queen gave to Rastas. Some people find it difficult to understanding being a Rasta, because they only see it as fashion.
Rasta means “Rastafarian.” A Rastafarian is a person who adheres to the Rastafari belief. Here is a quick and brief history of Rastafarians. The Rastafari belief developed in Jamaica in the 1930s after the 1930 coronation of Haile Selassie I as Emperor of Ethiopia.
Those who follow the Rastafarian way of life are known as Rastafari, Rastas or Rastafarians. The term Rastafari comes from Ras (which means head in Amharic) and Tafari Makonnen, which was Haile Selassie I’s first name before his coronation.
On social media, the term Rasta is used far more widely to refer to people who dress and act in a similar fashion to the late singer Bob Marley, who is undoubtedly the most famous Rastafarian.
Typically, this includes wearing hair in dreadlocks, smoking weed, and wearing clothing that is red, gold, and green (the colours of the Ethiopian flag).
Today, the Rastafarian culture has spread to all parts of the world and the young guys in Ghana have also incorporated this lifestyle.
However, a slay queen identified as Airsthar has sent a short message to guys in Ghana who are also trying to cultivate the Rasta lifestyle.
She narrated in a short video that; not all guys have the aesthetics and look to become a Rastafarian. And so, becoming a Rasta is not meant for everybody. She explained that the new looks some guys acquire after doing dreadlocks to become Rastafarians are scary and frightening.
She finally advised that a lot of Rasta guys in Ghana should go to the barbershop and shave their dreadlocks because she sometimes gets scared when she sees them.
