9 Ways To Turn A Classic George Fabric Into A Striking Piece



Nigeria is a country with many languages and many tribes, therefore, it doesn’t come as a surprise that different tribes lean towards different preferences when it comes to traditional style. A good example is the different choice of fabrics used for traditional weddings.

In the Eastern and Southern parts of the country, the ‘George’ fabric is a top choice. The fabric which is made from high-quality polyester features detailed designs and adornments on a taffeta or plain chiffon background and also come with elegant embroidery and scalloped edges.

Just like any other fabric, it comes in a variety of colours, textures and designs but it is easily identifiable thanks to the classic way it is constructed. There isn’t much historically known on how this originally Indian fabric came into Nigeria let alone flood the Eastern market but it has for ages become a staple, showing up at different ceremonies and engagements as long as it is a major one. It is the main choice for Eastern and Southern brides when it comes to their traditional bridal attire and is also used by wedding guests for aso ebi.

The George fabric offers up a lot of prospects but not everyone knows how to get creative with it. This is why we have chosen to focus on this Eastern and Southern favourite today. As we all know when it comes down to it, it’s all about how well you make use of the fabric.

People: John Legend is the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’



People: John Legend is the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’

John Legend is not only an EGOT legend, now he is the sexiest man alive, according to People magazine. He takes over from actor Idris Elba, who held the title last year.

Legend is one of the youngest people to scoop the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards, and the first Black man to win all four – earning him the EGOT status.

The singer has reacted to the pronouncement in a hilarious Twitter post, posting a past picture of himself alongside that of Idris Elba, and poking fan at how they compare.

“1995 John would be very perplexed to be following 2019 @IdrisElba as #sexiestman alive,” tweeted the star “Hell, 2019 John is about as equally perplexed but thank you @People for finding me sexy. I’ll take it.”

“I was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it’s a lot of pressure,” he said of him being sexier than any man alive, “Everyone’s going to be picking me apart to see if I’m sexy enough to hold this title. I’m  following Idris Elba which is not fair and is not nice to me!”

Voices of dissent

True to his fears, not everyone is happy with John Legend’s declaration as the Sexiest Man Alive. Wendy Williams, she of the Wendy Williams Show, for instance, has voiced her dismay. She made it known that actor Jason Momoa would have made a better fit.

John Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, foreseeing the discontent this announcement would bring, took to Twitter to denounce the naysayers in classic Teigen style.

“I cannot WAIT for people to get mad about John being the sexiest man alive. It’s my new Starbucks holiday cup,” Tweeted the former model and Queen of Twitter Shade.

She did not stop there, however. The mum of two went ahead and changed her bio to read “de-motivational speaker currently sleeping with people’s sexiest man alive.”

She has countered most of the anti-Legend quips, and everybody who knows Teigen knows her comebacks are hard to rise from.

Everyone deserves a spouse who defends them like Chrissy does John!
