From male dresses to tailored suits, we run through a list of male Nigerian celebrities whose edgy style would make their closets primes raiding spots!
It's been said that Nigerian women are some of the best dressed women in Africa. While some may raise their eyebrows at this, the incredible influence of Nigeria in the African fashion and entertainment scene cannot be denied.
As several female Nigerian celebrities continue to thrill us with their appearances on and off the red carpet, a few of their male counterparts also succeed in making our hearts skip beats with their bold, flawless fashion choices.
In no particular order, here are 5 Nigerian male celebrities whose style has us swooning all the time and whose closest would make prime raiding spot.
Check them out.
Lynxxx: From the moment he stepped on the Nigerian entertainment scene, we were taken by Lynxxx's impressive physique and love for well-tailored suits. His love for suits is just as well - the 'My Place' singer certainly knows how to rock a suit. His street wear is nothing to scoff at either as he makes a pair of t-shirt and jeans look like a million bucks and we're certain his closet would make a treasure-chest of suits and easy breezy street wear.
Ebuka Obi-Uchendu: With his boyish good looks and cerebral mien, Ebuka got our hearts racing from his days at the Big Brother Nigeria house. Now a graduate of law and multiple talk show host, Ebuka still has swooning for all the right reasons - his impeccable sense of style and utter lack of fear of taking fashion risks. Don't be surprised if you find a kilt in his closet now!
Julius Agwu: Julius may stand at approximately only 5.5" but that is not about to stop the comedy don. With an eye for detail and love for the finer things of life, Julius never fails to make a statement whenever we spot him and this lands him squarely on our list.
Mai Atafo: Marketing executive turned fashion designer, Mai Atafo is clear proof that looking good is good business, and he should know. As owner of leading Nigerian fashion label, Mai Atafo Inspired, Mai leads by example, never failing to look like a model straight off GQ magazine whenever he's on the red carpet. Indeed, what closet would make a better raid than THE Mai Atafo?
Uti Nwachukwu: Another fearless fashion risk taker, we know for sure that Uti's closet could yield a kilt or even a kaftan. At the Kinabuti/Pulse event, Uti looked every inch like an Egyptian pharaoh of old in a custom-made Kinabuti kaftan. What's not to love about a man who can rock a dress and still make it look sexy!?
