Harambee Stars midfielder Richard Odada is set to debut a new hairstyle after shedding his iconic rasta for a fresh, bold look.

Harambee Stars midfielder Richard Odada has taken to social media to unveil a bold change in his appearance saying goodbye to his iconic rasta hairstyle.

The 23-year-old, who currently plays for AaB Aalborg in Denmark, shared a captivating reel holding his chopped locks with the simple yet profound caption "gone." 

Since joining AaB Aalborg on loan from Philadelphia Union in August last year, Odada has been a vital part of the team, contributing four goals and one assist in 19 games this season.

His move to Denmark was a strategic step to gain more playing time, a resource that was scarce at his previous club due to restrictions on the number of foreign players in MLS.

His time in the Serbian league from 2019 to 2022 also contributed to his rich playing experience which he has brought to his current team.

Internationally, Odada has been a reliable player for the Harambee Stars, earning over 10 caps in A-level international matches and participating in two U-20 international matches. 

His debut for the national team came in a World Cup qualifier against Uganda on September 2, 2021. 

One of his most memorable performances was scoring his first international goal during a thrilling 2-1 victory over Rwanda on November 15, 2021.

The new hairstyle symbolizes a fresh start for Odada, reflecting his readiness to embrace new challenges and continue growing both as a player and as an individual. 

Fans and teammates alike have expressed their support and curiosity about his new look on social media, eager to see how this change might influence his performances on the field.
