Haircut Records – Part 2

The sample hairstyles are in. Not only did the bidding barbers send in portfolios of their previous work, they made some suggestions of how my hair should look on my wedding day. One thing they all seem to have forgotten is that the haircut is for my WEDDING DAY, not WEEDING DAY. I mean, which part of me looks like I smoke blunts?

Anyway, the REBoLs are helping me critique the sample haircuts. Let’s take a look at them right below.

Haircut Records – Part 1

It’s a crisis. The wedding ceremony is less than 18 hours away and my hair isn’t cut yet. And there’s nobody to cut it. The original blueprints for my haircut records are held by Ba Emmẳ and Ba Chris. They’re the only barbers certified to put blade to my scalp. But they’re in Chingola. So the boys have put some money together to fly me to Ndola. From there, I am to take a cab to Chingola, where I could either

  1. have one of the 2 barbers cut my hair, or
  2. simply photocopy one of the blueprints and return to Lusaka with it, and hand it to one of the barbers in the Avondale area.

Wedding Tickets… Bazinga!

After the many questions, and admittedly much ado, I wish to officially state my position on invitations to my wedding.

Mkushi Accents will MC my wedding reception, which will basically render it a comedy show. As such, I’m not issuing invitation cards… I’m selling tickets and they’re going for K300.00 each. This will include a food coupon for adults and highspeed Wi-Fi access so you can upload selfies in real-time.

Bestmen’s Pledge

Becoming an ex-bachelor is no joke. Especially if your surname is the most famous one in Africa and you’re marrying a princess. Because of that, I will need the bestmen, or Real Ex-Bachelors of Lilayi (REBoLs), as they have come to be known, to take an oath before assuming office as my compadres on this journey from bachelorhood to ex-bachelorhood.

Below is the pledge of allegiance that the REBoLs will have to read out while holding a Bible in their right hands, just before signing the important pledge:

I’m Becoming An Ex-Bachelor

What’s This About?

So I’m getting married. And that’s what this category is all about and this is where I will be posting notes about the wedding preps.

Having lived in Lilayi, Lusaka, as soon as I get married, I will be referring to myself as the Real Ex-Bachelor of Lilayi (REBoL). To help me prepare for the wedding, I will be expected to recruit a high profile team of best men who will provide entertainment on that day. But their job will start way before the wedding day as their core function will be to provide me with moral support.
