Five of the most stylish men in Nigeria handpicked for their personal styles, which match evolving trends in men’s fashion.
Let’s take a closer look at each of them:
The Ubersexual man- Ebuka Obi-Uchendu
Ubersexuals are attractive, confident and not self-obsessed and stylish but undoubtedly masculine. The focal point of this trend is embracing traditional masculinity without negative aspects associated with it. The ubersexual man is willing to follow trends but he’s not a slave to fashion.
The Metrosexual Man- Bryan Okwara
He is a modern man who embraces his feminine side with masculinity. He can be perceived as vain because he spends lots of time grooming, working out and keeping u trendy hairstyles and beauty regimens whilst draping himself in fashionable outfits too daring for Ubersexuals to handle.
The Retrosexual Man- BOJ
He is anti-metrosexual. He self consciously adopts traditional masculine styles and incorporates it in his everyday style, so much so that it becomes a way of life. He is mostly spotted in vintage pieces.
The Afrosexual Man- DJ Spinall
He is a modern African man in touch with his identity, heritage and nationality. His style is a fusion of African and trendy western pieces. An Afrosexual man is clearly afrocentric but ith a bit of metrosexual aura around him.
The Lumbersexual- Iyanya
Half-Metrosexual and half-Ubersexual but more outdoorsy, he has a stylish rugged look and is king of the Beard Gang. Lumbersexuals ooze sexuality and danger effortlessly, he is the man every woman is smitten with, and every man wants to look like.
So guys, with the breakdown above, you should be able to identify your personal style! Which is it?
