Mordecai Dex real name Mordecai Mwini Kimeu who is one-third member of the popular band, H_art the Band has finally said goodbye to his signature dreadlocks.
The all boy band group comprises Wachira Gatama, Kenneth Muya, and Mordecai Mwini. The vocally gifted musician named himself under the H_art the Band music group as the lead singer making him more identifiable thanks to his signature dreadlocks look.
When they were coming up with their breakout song, ‘Uliza Kiatu’, the group was known for their signature long dreadlocks and their signature dress code, but the group’s lead singer now spots a new ‘cleaner’ look.
That’s why this comes as a surprise to many after learning about Mordecai shaving his dreadlocks in a rather impromptu fashion. After shaving his dreadlocks, Mordecai Mwini who doubles as a songwriter shared his new look on social media via a short clip asking his fans what they think about it;
“Comments fupi fupi please, he’s still adjusting to this new look #ImNotMyHair #FallenSoldiers #teamH_artForever.” According to the singer, it was a painful decision for him, but he says he has a valid reason.
He said; “I got so many offers to auction my locks online; however, our EP is titled simple man, and this is in preparation for a mature vibe by ‘simple men’. We recorded most tracks at the height of the pandemic, so it has a passionate yet entertaining inclination,”
The EP, which features established acts in the country, is expected to drop in mid-March.
