Every so often celebrities will leave us scratching our heads in awe or just plain disbelief at what comes out of their mouths.

Such was the case for the students at Rhodes University, when legendary Trumpet player Hugh Masekela told the female student body that he doesn’t take pics with women who wear weave.

According to City Press:

“We spend about a billion rand on other people’s hair each year. I don’t even know where to begin on this issue,” said Masekela, who was at the university to receive an honorary doctorate.

Some audience members described Masekela as being “irritable” and “condescending”, while others appreciated his no nonsense approach.

He also said:

“You’re lucky that you were sneaky enough to have him take a picture of you next to me, otherwise I would have refused. I don’t take pictures with girls who have your kind of hair,” Masekela told a student who had taken a picture with him, according to student journalist Sanele Ntshingana.

What do you think of his comments?
