Sako also confirmed that he always wants to look good on TV and that has called for him trying different hairstyles before each and every game.

The Ghanaian barber wanted to be the most loved barber in England’s capital when he initially moved into the city and started his business.

His dream came into fruition when ex-Nigerian international Yakubu Aiyegbeni visited the shop and word got out on Nikky’s hairdressing skills.
