Hi, it’s John Ocean again.
First of all, let me state that I was disappointed with the fashion at the MAMAs. Granted, it wasn’t the Golden Globes, but I expected African stars to bring their A-game. What was with that American comedian hosting it? So, no African could host the show? Lupita? Agbani? Oluchi? Charlize Theron? The list is endless, if they had to go the Americanah route. Instead, they brought an (African) American comedian – who did a shoddy job of hosting. Oh well, what do I know? Let me dive into the fashion biko!
I don’t know who this girl is, but she leaves me nodding in approval. This is how you show skin while still keeping things tasteful. It’s about strategically-placed cut-outs that reveal just enough skin. Her smile and side swept hair are winners. I only wish she’d popped in some color to the look.
Number one Akpan sure looks good in red. I love when men wear color on the red carpet, and a red look on a red carpet is often difficult to wear, because if the shades are not right, you could blend into the carpet.
She broke all the rules about dressing up while being plus-sized. And she nailed it one hundred percent! The color is amazing and her shoes add a bit of whimsy to her look. Ordinarily the embellishments on the bust area would not have worked because she is busty, but the cut-outs distort the proportions and make it work. I also loved that she skipped jewelry because the dress was already doing all the talking. She should marry her stylist biko, even if it’s a woman!
This lady understands the concept of less is more. She always exudes understated elegance right from her days as Miss Lux. However she is gaining weight fast o, and it is very disturbing to me! Nne, CWO hands no go fit you o.
I don’t know this dude, but I love rule breakers, and he smashed all the rules with a fashion hammer. And he sure looks good. Quirky guys get me all hot and flustered, and does it get any quirkier than kente and sneaks?
I love this dress; it takes years off her, leaving her looking twenty-one. Dressing for a music award show is tricky, because you could easily look over-dressed or too casual, but I think this dress straddles that line perfectly. I especially loved that the crop was covered with sheer lace; very sexy and feminine! Good one, Vimbai.
THE HMMM, OYA LET’S MANAGE
This is a beautiful and stunning dress, but unfortunately it does nothing for her body type. The dress is very busy and it is wearing her. I think this dress will work on someone lean and tall, who can bring proportion to it. Yemi is a bit too short and kinda stocky for this look. I wasn’t impressed.
His jacket looks like it’s made out of wrapping paper used for wedding presents. The cut is amazing, but I cannot get over the Broadway-ness of it; it looks like a costume. And get rid of that chain, please!

Of course, she had to come with her sash! I thought it was only that runs babe that won Miss Unilag that wakas upandan with her sash? This SA babe follow kwa… *smh*
You people should not laugh joor. I know what happened here. His madam sent him on an errand to the market to buy fufu, but he stole somebody’s clothes and decided to branch to the MAMAs in all his Akpan glory. He looks like someone an Oba of Lagos would be buried with. And how does one have big belle and six packs at the same time bikonu?
Oga Cy, next time, before you steal clothes, at least make sure the person wears same size as you!
It does look like a beautiful dress, but when she turns her back, you see the terrible tailoring and stitching going on there. She even had the presence of mind to twirl around and show this horrible tailoring. Obioma tailors are clearly smiling to the bank.
These are the worst dressed twins since the beginning of mankind. They never ever get it right. Tufia! They’re always decked out in expensive, gaudy crap. They need to hire a stylist like yesterday.
Where do I even start? I feel like Eniola Badmus’ cosmetic surgeon…where do I start? Tuface has an amazing body, but he always wears crap. Who buys his clothes biko? An ex-girlfriend? Dude did not even bother to iron his shirt. And what’s up with those shoes? Is he under house arrest?
My best dressed for the night is Vimbai, but she is clearly a one-eyed man in the land of blind men. And my worst dressed is Yvonne Ekwerre for wearing a horribly-stitched dress!
I would like to hear your thoughts, guys!
