AFRICA MAGIC VIEWERS’ CHOICE AWARDS- Guys representing… Girls mehhh….

So the African Magic Viewer’s Choice awards has come and gone. The turn out was amazing. It was nice to see so many stars gathered in one place. I, for one, was looking forward to seeing magic created with some authentic African pieces, but I was sorely disappointed. Come on guys, everyone have had their full of evening gowns at the Oscars, Grammys, Sags and all the other awards shows. This was the opportunity to showcase some awesome authentic African styles, but in my opinion, they fell short…..the girls at least

Pretty, no doubt, but Nothing with the wow factor!

Now, the guys on the other hand seemed to have a lot of fun with their outfits. Yeah, some of them wore the conventional tux, but others like the awesome Dare Art Alade, the prolific director Kunle Afolayan (i love that he wore this) and a host of them really embraced their roots and to them, kudos.

Yeah, weirdly there were a lot of boobies on display. Now personally, I don’t have any issue with a little décolletage here and there, but somehow, I don’t think we as a society are very accepting of it yet.

no words for this lady.

I notice that Omotola and Genevieve did change twice. I don’t get that. I know that performing musicians may get to change, but neither Omotola or Geneieve were performing(or were they?). Perhaps they were presenting. Which outfit do you think they should have stuck with?

Now i don’t know much about fashion. Just expressing my views. So drop a line, what do you think of the outfits? Do you think the guys looked better? Or are you a fan of the girls?

  1. Omotola’s black outfit was better, the design on the other gown is clearly meant for a very slim figure as it creates the illusion of one being wider.
    Genevieve’s yellow gown is lovely. I prefer it to the first open-chested one.
    BTW, nice blog u got here. Me likey.
