Who wore it best?
Who wore it best?
As a Nigerian, I am of course very proud of my culture. I am proud of African culture. I love to see it. I love to wear it. I love to experience it.
In recent times especially, there has been a worldwide cultural shift in the way that Africa is viewed. This is of course most prominent in the reception of Disney's Black Panther. Now more than ever Nigerian and African culture is sought after. From our music to our fashion to our art. It looks like Africa is in demand.
And boy, do we have more than enough to deliver.
The culture has permeated the world so much so that even some top American celebrities decided to feel a little bit of us on their skin by wearing our clothes. Of course the reception to this is divided: some think it's appropriation, some think it's appreciation. But that is not the conversation I plan on having today.
Today, I'm keeping it fun. I want us to look at a couple of pictures of Hollywood celebrities rocking Nigerian outfits, and then we will decide together: Is this is a hit? or is this is a miss?
