Vogue unveils best dressed Nigerian popstar
Vogue magazine has just named Wizkid, Nigeria’s best dressed pop star. The 25 year old pop sensation is known for his cool and modern vibe approach to style and fashion.
Wizkid's styled was described as "trendsetting" with "a thoughtful and fun approach to wardrobe: clean lines and minimalism; a mix of fresh streetwear with traditional Nigerian clothes; and bold, bright accessories."
During the interview Wizkidconfessed to being a fan of a variety of designers. "Yeah, I like me some Bape, you know. But I wear anything to be honest. Adyn, Rick Owens, Givenchy, anything. I shop from everywhere. We’re talking with BBC to make clothes for my tour.”
Wizkid also revealed his fashion creative abilities, as he collaborates with tailors in designing clothing that are specially made for him. "I design everything myself, and I get them to make it. I do a little sketch; sometimes I just sit down with a tailor and describe what I want. Sometimes we go back and forth, like, for days, trying to get it right. Sometimes it’ll take a day to make it, sometimes three, four days. I have a lot of tailors. If I want something made in 12 hours, it will be made in 12 hours."
He also dished about living in Lekki and clubbing in Lagos. "I live in Lekki now. There are new clubs popping up every day. We go to places like Escape, Sip, and it’s madness. December is the craziest time to be in Lagos. I just left there, so I’m pretty exhausted from going hard. Africa is the next thing right now. Talking fashion, music, anything—Africa is on top of all that."
