Looking good is great business these days, especially with the countless opportunities that come with it, like- being an influencer, brand representative, stylist and working closely with designers for numerous project opportunities. Each celebrity on this list has grown right before us and transcended over time to the people they are today, with their fashionable insights staying intact.
Very deserving of being the first mentioned, Ebuka has been an absolute vibe since the wedding ceremony of Banky and Adesuwa tagged #BAAD2017. That unforgettable wine coloured agbada caused a standstill on social media, possibly causing more traction than the actual wedding itself, but that is up for debate. Since then, he has graced our screens repeatedly, anchoring one of Nigeria’s most popular shows, “Big Brother Nigeria,” where he has experimented, reinvented looks and broken the supposed boundary for all those who thought it wasn’t possible. Ebuka Obi-Uchendu should be your go-to guy when looking for fashion inspirations. You wouldn’t regret it, I promise you!
