This is the story of Dora Portuphy, who has shared her experiences in the male-dominated vocation of barbering.
Portuphy is the biological mother of Ghanaian blogger Edward Blagogee of Blagogee.com.
On Friday 17th April 2020, during the partial lockdown ongoing in Accra -Ghana, the affable woman visited her son to give him a haircut.
