On Sunday the 23rd of September, Lagos and all social media platforms in Nigeria stood still for the most anticipated movie premiere of the year, Merry Men: The Real Yoruba Demons. Now, the anticipation wasn’t just because people wanted to see the movie but about the fashion that would go down at the red carpet premiere of the movie. AY Makun and his team came up with a brilliant promo for the movie premiere done in the most organic way, everyone wanted to be part of the Agbada Challenge.
So, who walked their merry way into our best dressed list? Now, some people didn’t wear agbadas but they completely slayed their looks e.g Ini Edo, Ufuoma McDermott and more brought the fire with their looks. Narrowing this list to just 15 best dressed looks was quite tough to do as everybody came correct for the movie premiere, except a few people (e.g our darling Kate Henshaw -who looked good but felt like she went straight from church or was attending a garden party, Uche Jombo and a few others who fell short).
Here are the best looks (men and women) from a night of high Nigerian fashion. Do let us know who your ultimate best-dressed is.
Directed by AY Makun, Merry Men: The Real Yoruba Demons tells the story of Remi Martins (Falz the Bad Guy), Amaju Abioritsegbemi (AY Makun), Ayo Alesinloye (Ramsey Nouah) and Naz Okigbo (Jim Iyke), a group of Abuja’s most eligible and notorious bachelors. They have thriving businesses, palatial homes, fast cars and the attention of women to boot. They are known as THE MERRY MEN … but the ladies call them THE REAL YORUBA DEMONS.
The movie hits cinemas nationwide from the 28th of September, where will you be watching from?
