Master Prince Selassie Yankey happens to be a first-year student and got admission to OKESS after writing his Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and was placed by the Computerized School Selection & Placement System (CSSPS).
A post sighted by unitedshowbiz.com.gh on social media has confirmed the admission of Master Prince Selassie Yankey as a first-year student of the school.
The post reads;
“Beloved we have another victory today in KUMASI! Thank you JAH for another blessed day. We thank OKESS S.H.S Kumasi headmaster & administration for welcoming our prince Selassie Yankey as student.

Earlier, the 19-year-old dreadlocked student, who has been denied admission at Osei Kyeretwie Senior High School (OKESS) in the Ashanti Region, says he is considering quitting school for good.
Selasi Yankee with an aggregate of 15 was placed at OKESS by Ghana Education Service (GES) computer placement system only to be denied admission by the school’s authorities under the pretext that “school regulations do not permit dreadlocks on campus” as earlier reported.
Speaking on Akoma FM, Selasi Yankee disclosed that he will rather choose to keep his dreadlocks over the school when it comes down for him to choose between cutting his locks before he’s admitted into the school.
