Megah Brown’s Barber’s owner passes away as tributes pour in

September 18, 2023 by No Comments

Over the years, Megah Brown’s has earned a solid reputation in Oakland as one of the city’s best barber shops. This had been around for a while and even survived the pandemic lockdown. However, customers and friends of the barber are now in mourning after it was recently confirmed that the owner, Damion had passed away. This was mentioned on several social media sites, while tributes and candles were left outside of the shop’s location. Understandably, the shop was closed and its future remains unknown.

On the Megah Brown’s Yelp page, the latest review (left on September 15th) wrote: “I’ve been a client of Damion for the last two years+ and I have to say he was the most professional barber I ever had the opportunity to get a cut from. He was never late, cut me exactly how I wanted and he would end your visit with, “Go on out there and be some somebody.”So it was devastating moments ago today (9/16/23) when I showed up for an appointment for a cut and a gentleman told me he passed away. My condolences to his family.”


Similarly, the note pictured above began by reading: ‘Damion, you were loved by so many.’ Similarly, this Reddit thread discussed the passing. One user claimed that Damion had been killed during a motorbike accident. However, at this point this theory has not been confirmed. On a final note, Oakland certainly lost a real one and he will be loved and missed by many.
