Nigerian Instagram sensation Maryam Apaokagi, popularly known as ‘Taaooma’ has been tapped for a new editorial that aims to “celebrate her faith and its place in fashion and style.”
The comedy genius who delivers comedic relief through relatable experiences on social media, endearing her to the heart and screens of many has been quite vocal about her decision to never compromise on her head coverings or outfits as part of her identity as a Muslimah and we can’t be more excited for the photos.
According to the press release, “what’s not to love about a zestful and principled young entrepreneur not to be swayed by societal expectations?”

Speaking on the creative direction of the shoot, the head stylist, Seun Olopade of the StyledbySeun styling brand expresses the team’s vision of changing the viewpoint of faith and fashion as merely a juxtaposition of two extremes.
“’I would imagine that in religion-laced conversations, modest style is viewed as a different aspect of fashion, with views like ‘expressions of faith… but make it fashion’. There must come the realization that expressions of faith are in and with fashion because what is fashion but an innate attraction to certain styles and pieces. Faith creates a unique element that drives Taaooma’s style and we are here for it”
One must admit that with infectious humor, pure talent, and hard work, Taaooma has built a tenable brand that is worthy of its many accolades; capable of so many facets and maybe fashion would not be out of it.
