Chairman of United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, Tony Elumelu, has been forced to take up a new skill as barber for his sons as the coronavirus ravages.

In a video shared on Instagram on Tuesday, Mr Elumelu is seen cutting the hair of one of his sons, after his wife, Awele, had braided the girls’ hair.

The billionaire businessman also shared a picture where he is seen cutting the hair of his last son.

“After madam braided the girls’ hair, my turn to cut the boys’ hair! Covid-19 is making us multi-skilled,” he wrote.

Elumelu had on May 9 shared pictures of his wife braiding one of their daughters’ hair.

The Elumelus have seven children — five girls and two boys.
