Let's Squash this BS !!!

Hello Lovelies,

TGIF !!! The Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards held last week in Lagos and all the movie makers, actors and the likes were in attendance. It was an opportunity for me to rate the fashion and style these stars and their dresses, put on display. I must say i was quite disappointed.

Personally, there were only like two dresses i thought were appropriate on those who wore them. Dresses were either too tight or the hair should have been put in a bun or outfit not structured properly or undergarments were out of control. Even those i had expected would make me proud as per usual, “fell my hand”

However, the purpose of this post is to break down popular actor and “Nollywood bad boy” (as many websites around here refer to him), Jim Iyke’s look of the night.


Jim Iyke - AMVCA


A lot of controversy ensued, following his appearance on stage and trust that most of them were negative. People’s concerns ranged from “if shorts to an award show was good enough to why he wore sunnies at night” and all.

Well first of all, i’d like to say i more than appreciate the fact that he made an attempt to stand out at the awards, as opposed to the other men who were present and i guess that’s what makes him Jim Iyke lol!

Now to the suit, I loved the jacket, the color and fit. However, i’d have loved for the shorts to be a little longer, covering his knee a bit and to ensure his legs don’t look to puffed underneath. Not withstanding, it was a breath of fresh air that i was glad to receive.

Moving on to the shoes, i couldn’t love it more. He picked the perfect choice!

Now to the critics, I understand how this look confused those who didn’t see it coming but i am wowed at the pedestrian level we are still at fashion and style wise, in Nigeria.  I think designers are moving forward and consumers are stagnant.

Style is quite personal, being stylish is being true to your authentic style and he did this. I really don’t see anyone else in the industry pulling off that look so, if only for the effort….

Dear Jimmy “as i refer to him”, keep being you, keep being fierce, keep being untamed!

Have a Fashionable weekend guys and embrace your own personal style, it defines you…

its Ms Modish,
