Style Focus: Kcee aka Limpopo Master

I saw this picture of Kcee on a blog where the blog administrator asked 'hot-or-not?'; this then brought to mind that there two options that could have warranted such a question(It doesn't even sound like a question anyway), either the blog administrator was on the same page with Kcee or it was all laced with sarcasm.

After I saw the image above, I quickly said hello to my bestfriend-google and the rest I saw were almost more nightmarish than the above. After seeing loads of images of the self acclaimed 'limpopo' master (whatever that means *sighs*), I concluded that style and Kcee should never appear in the same sentence except it is a negative one.

There's no crime in growing up as a local dude, there will only be a problem if you refuse shake off the village mentality dressing that once plagued you. And one will wonder that this dude sang Oprekete; which satirically  'yabbed'/criticized girls who could never get used to the good life though they acted so. Who is the ultimate oprekete now?

What statement is he trying to make here?

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

Merry Christmas 1 HD Wallpapers
Let's pull out all the stops and celebrate! We have a Savior—He is Christ the Lord! The good news of Jesus' birth is as wonderful today as it was over 2,000 years ago.

I love you, and I'm so grateful that you have been a wonderful part of this blog thus far. Thank you.

Most important of all... Jesus loves you. He loves you so much that He came to earth so you might live in His grace, both now and forevermore. May you and your family rest, receive and revel in His unconditional, never-ending love this Christmas and in the new year to come.

From me to you with love!

At some point, it was all about female Nigerian celebrities showing off bikini bodies but these days the men, have decided against taking the backseat in this 'field'.
Benson Okonkwo decided emulate Prince Uzoegwu by wearing the male speedo. Is this fast becoming a 'water-side' trend amongst the male celebs in this part of the world?

Will Crop Tops Ever Become a Trend In Nigeria?

Each time I pick up one of these top fashion mags in Nigeria to read, I am appalled when I read fashion write ups ranting about the 'crop top' as an emerging fashion trend in Nigeria. The magazines talk about the summer and how the crop top is the perfect outfit to remain stylish and comfortable for the season.  It's understandable, that we are going global and so is our fashion drive but the crop top becoming a trend??? That's pushing overboard, in my opinion.

First and foremost, it will be important to note that this post isn't coming from a religious angle, so don't get me wrong, infact, I sometimes admire crop tops on celebs who rock it for concert performances.

The crop top is one fashion trend that will probably never trend on our streets in Nigeria. It may be feasible amongst those with  rides to attend events and all they have to do is to get into their teensy weensy piece, step into their posh rides, drive down, alight at the venue and go enjoy the event or

And the award for the worst blogger goes to...

... Abby!!! lol
Who else will get the award if not me? *covers face*

Often times I blog inconsistently and at other times I'm M.I.A! What can I say?? Short of words to type, I've run out of excuses to give, however, I'm not short of apologies to tender.

My apologies go to those that pop into my blog often to get updates and are greeted by bland posts about a celeb sighting, or some crappy stories(those are the lucky ones) and for those that meet nothing but post which are days old(the not so lucky ones); combining an hectic 8-5 with blogging and writing isn't much of an easy task I must confess but I'll try my best not to disappoint.

I wish I was doing purely gossip or worldwide fashion, I'm not sure I'll not find copying and pasting much of an arduous task... well, that's what I think, as they say- "You'll never know till you try"

I sometimes wish I could quit my job for the blog but I can't, for two principal reasons; y'all know one and the other is cause I love what I do shikena!

I can't promise to be more consistent but I can say that I will try my best.

To my consistent readers, I say thanks, to the search engine poppers, I say bookmark, to those who find time to comment on my blog, I go always pray for you and those who are still beefing; beef is too tough, try fish or pork!

Love ya all and don't forget to leave your comment in the comment box; scold me if you have to but the opinion is more important to me. :)

Ghanian Fashion label, Love April, releases it's Lookbook

Love April, an emerging African Fashion label from Ghana has released its lookbook titled 'Over-sized Tribalism'. The design label which is headed by Nina Barkers-Woode, has this to say about the collection:
"Our motive was to not only harness the Barkers-Woode woman’s natural female form through dramatic tribal prints but to also uniquely contemporize the look and feel of each piece. Inspired by the world history generations of women and androgyny artworks, the Oversized Tribalism collection plays on the mixture of minimalism and femininity.

Our exaggerated seam-lines emphasis our cling to modern culture. Our true, bare, chic necklines keep us in the realm of ancients. Our abstracted textured prints will ultimately immortalize the classic style and feel of a woman."

I completely love all the pants in this collection but my fave is definitely the graphic jumpsuit; I love the form, the design and from the little I can see from the image, it looks well tailored. I would have preferred it in a brighter colour tho'.

Wanna make a 'Statement'??? Try this!

Talk of a statement making Bandage dress, then you will be talking about this!!! I'm sure the father of bandage dresses, Herve Leger couldn't have conceived this; not in this lifetime and not in the next!!! (if you believe in reincarnation that is.)
If there is a dearth of clothes on earth and this is the only outfit left, I will rather strut proudly in my birthday suit than rock this piece. YUP!!! You heard me right.

Celeb Sightings Over the Weekend

There were so many events over the weekend and trust the Toke Makinwas of this world to bust their butts into the parties. lol. From the fairytale wedding between Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz, to the ELOY awards; an award that celebrates the works of women (hope to win one someday *wishful thinking mode activated*), to the launch of a self titled magazine by Monalisa Chinda, our celebs were everywhere and trust me to check them out online and serve them to you hot and spicy.

Let me quickly start off with the beautiful Monalisa Chinda in Jewel By Lisa
Monalisa donned a Jewel by Lisa piece at the launch of her eponymous magazine. As we mostly know, Jewel By Lisa has successfully discarded the age old fashion rule that states you can't mix two prints in an outfit and over the years, they have consistently broken that rule in a stylish way. This (one pictured above) is a paradigm of JBL's designs. Mixing of prints in an outfit is definitely not an easy task but JBL makes it seem like a piecemeal.

The mix of prints here is JBLic and I love the assymetric trumpet hem, my guts tell me it's heavily embellished, but the picture doesn't say much. But judging by the picture, this outfit fits perfectly on Mona, I like the choice of shoes too, it's not there to compete with the dress but rather complement it, would have preferred if the hair was pushed back tho', but all in all, it isn't a bad attempt.
