“The headache and the heat on my head when I kept on the dreadlocks for six months last year was too much. I finally gave up and brought everything down when we went to shoot a music video in Dubai on the desert.

"The place was very hot and with the dreads on I just couldn’t handle it. It was very uncomfortable and I brought everything down after the video shoot. I was getting headaches when I was wearing dreadlocks. I now respect anyone who wears dreadlocks,” he said.

Moving on to other matters, Guru said his appearance including the way he dresses has changed because he is now growing. “I am now targeting the corporate world and you cannot dress anyhow if you want to get the attention of such people. I now do a lot of African wear and I am clean shaven,” he stated.

About his music, Guru, who is known for songs like Lapaz Toyota, Alkayida, Pooley, Samba and Mpaebo among others said he is touring the country to promote his music to his fans.

“My fans are all over Ghana and the best I can do is to reach out to them. I have decided to do collaborations with the best artistes in each of the regions to broaden my fanbase. I started with Accra and will be moving to other regions,” he said.

Guru said he was done with getting a manager because they have all disappointed him. “There is no need for a manager now because they have all failed me. They didn’t get the direction I wanted to go so we had to go our separate ways,” he stated.
