Music and stage performance are not the only factors that make an audience resonate with an artiste. People also watch out for celebrity style. Occasionally, a celebrity takes the stage and impresses the audience — with their musical prowess and their looks. We mean fierce outfits, the type that etches an artiste’s image in our memory for a long time. These are the ones we can’t stop thinking about.
For his performance at the Eko Convention Centre in Victoria Island in 2017, Grammy award-winner Wizkid dipped into the Gucci collection, to discover what would be one of his most unforgettable on-stage looks yet. His Gucci crystal jumper, similar to one previously worn by Michael Jackson is carved on everyone’s memory. With an outfit like that, of course, he was the star of the night.
Ditching her regular black-hue mesh outfits, Tems opted for colour, pairing a white body-hugging jumpsuit splattered with black short wavy traces, with a yellow fur jacket at the Wizkid Live in concert at the 02 Arena in 2021. All credit goes to Nigerian stylist, Dunsin Wright, who is the mastermind behind some of the singer’s best looks.
When having fun with textures, Tiwa does not hold back. Whether it is mesh, ruffles, sequins, frills or leather, everything is fair game, just like at the Wizkid’s concert at Eko Convention Centre in Victoria Island in 2017 designed by Tianna styling. This dress is similar to one initially worn by Rihanna.
Davido knows how to keep it fashionably casual with a couple of icy chunky chains around his neck. He stepped out in an all-white ensemble at the 2021 YAM carnival in London, United Kingdom. He sure knows how to keep it simple and fresh without being extra.
Fashion-loving Grammy award-winning singer isn’t afraid to push boundaries when it comes to fashion, like with this viral cowboy outfit and boots designed by Theophilus London x Off-White he wore at Wizkid’s concert at the 02 Arena in London in 2021. “Odogwu dey enter your eyes abi? Close am”, he said as he showed off his pricey outfit.
AG baby has been looking dapper since his rebrand from Adekunle Gold to AG Baby shedding the Afrocentric look for a more contemporary feel complete with braids, jewellery and stylish accessories. He keeps it bad and casual at the same time in a red leather jacket and trousers designed by KemaKolam for his performance in Rwanda in 2021.
Proving he has come to steal the show and perhaps, your woman, Rema is dressed in his signature look – a ski mask, crumpled leather pants and puffer jacket for his performance at Manchester in the United Kingdom in 2021.
This list is incomplete without the fashion killer herself. Her fashion is consistently electrifying and flamboyant. Feeling like the celestial being that she claims to be, Ayra always set the mood with her thrilling style choices showing up in an all-white halter crop top, low-rise denim and coat with feather cuffs and collar at the Afrobeats live concert at Abuja in 2021.
