Kente is a colourful fabric hand-woven by Ghanaian weavers. The brilliant colours and wonderful designs associated with Kente have definitely made this fabric stand out at your occasions. Interestingly every kente design has a story with a proverbial meaning. It is evident that Ghanaians revere the kente cloth with most preferring to adorn themselves with the fabric for engagement or wedding ceremonies, enstool ceremony of chiefs or celebration of a grand occasion.

Ladies and gents who opt for kente say the fabric’s stamina in not fading easily is its appeal. Back in the day, women wore 2 pieces or 1 piece kente cloth about 2 yards long and 45 inches wide wrapped round the waist to form a floor-length skirt. Men wear the cloth in much the same way as the ‘T.’ was worn by the ancient Greeks, and it would seem that these ancient people must have been in contact centuries ago despite the distance.

Recently, fashion trend has taken kente styles to a very trendy level, as the Kente fabric can now be transformed into beautiful styles ranging from Jumpsuits, peplum dress, kaba and slit, suits, jackets and shorts. You are at liberty to let your creativity flow.

Last Week, Male Celebrities Kept It Laidback And Cool: Ebuka Didn’t Lifestyle.ng

Each week, we take a look back at the past week to celebrate the best dressed male celebrities and influencers in an effort to help inspire your next outfit. Because whether you’re a style connoisseur or simply enjoy poring over some well-dressed, cosily clad dudes, we all appreciate a well-dressed man.

Fashion has a lot of high points and one of them is when an outfit turns out exactly the way it was planned in one’s head. Another is when a laidback ensemble ends up looking much more stylish than expected. This can only be achieved when one knows the dos and don’ts of fashion and style.

Fashion is a very broad subject but when mastered, even the most basic of outfits end up looking great. Laidback outfits do not have to be boring but could be kept cool and wavy – after all, that’s what rave-worthy style is about.

Last week, our favourite Nigerian male celebrity styles were not just laid-back, these men kept their style cool and sleek. From fully neutral toned outfits to prismatic looks, men in the Nigerian entertainment and fashion industries served all shades of effortless style last week and we could all definitely learn a thing or two from them.

Once again, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu served a major “father of the bride” look but made it look so appealing to the young eye. He wore an agbada set made with the popular African fabric, ‘aso-oke’ with a beautifully patterned embroidery on it.


Fashion influencer, Akin Faminu and former Big Brother Naija Contestant, Tobi Bakre did well in showing us what laidback and cool style looks like in their reflective prismatic outfits. Artists Perruzi and Reekado Banks’ style definition of laidback and cool proved different as they both stuck to all black looks which totally worked for them. We love how our SR Gents each defined what laidback and cool style is to them.

Check out the best celebrity and influencer styles from last week…
