KD’s FASHION POLICE: The 2016 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards

KD’s FASHION POLICE: The 2016 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards

First of all, let me confess that I am not very big on Nollywood. I honestly cannot remember the last time I sat down to watch one Nollywood movie. However I hear the industry is actually making some good movies. I was therefore not very excited initially about doing this piece, because after trying to do a piece on the Headies and not finding even one manageable dress, I was going to give up. However AMVCA 2016 was quite a surprise for me and I would make some observations before going into the fashion;

  1. The organization of the event has significantly improved; from the sound, to the lighting, projector etc, they had all improved. It also looked as if the hosts had actually rehearsed. Thumbs up.
  2. The fashion had also improved. The stars are beginning to take their red carpet appearances serious and that is a very good thing. I also think it will help the fashion scene of Lagos.
  3. I am however confused as to who attended and why; is it not supposed to be an award ceremony for movie people only? Why am I seeing stylists, makeup artists, baby mamas and people who are famous for nothing really on the red carpet and being interviewed? In Hollywood, the lines are clear; film stars, movie stars, music stars and Broadway stars. If you don’t have a SAG card, you will not attend the Oscars or Golden Globes, unless you were invited to present. This is why you will probably not see Meryl Streep at the Grammys. Plus it keeps the Kardashians away (except for the Grammys where Kanye smuggles them in).

Anyway enough of my preaching and let us get into some fashion, shall we? The Hits, the ‘Erm Okay” and the WHAT WERE YOU THINKING. Feel free to give your feedback.

THE HITS

amvca 1 Mercy-Aigbe-GentryMERCY AIGBE GENTRY

MOVIE STAR!

I love, love, love this look! She channeled old Hollywood glamour, but the sparkle on the dress gave it a modern twist. Everything was on point, from her hair (kind of Marilyn Monroe-ish) to her minimal accessories and her makeup. I don’t even know who this girl is, but she won my heart over with this look. The draping is my best part; it covers her but is still sheer. And her figure? Jeso Kreste! A (fashion) STAR IS BORN! (BEST DRESSED NOMINEE)

amvca 2 Rita-Dominic-600x900RITA DOMINIC

All hail the queen of couture!

Babe came to slay and she is not smiling! This woman knows how to dress, knows what works and what doesn’t. Simple! This look is PERFECTION!

Rita Dominic is not exactly a spring chicken. Rumor has it that she is closer to 50 than 40, but she has clearly found the fountain of life and she is drinking from it. What does she eat? What does she drink? Who is preeqing her? Rita is a goddess! (BEST DRESSED NOMINEE)

amvca 3 Ik-Sonia-Ogbonna-600x900IK OGBONNA

You see the difference between him and Uti? If he had worn the same color of pants, he would have ended in the same place with Uti. He nailed this look, and together with his beard – sorry, bride, they look stunning together

amvca 4 Stephanie-Linus-Idahosa-2STEPHANIE LINUS

LOVE! LOVE!! LOVE!!!

I am obsessed with the detailing on this dress, and for me, this was a winner. I love the cutouts plus the shimmer and the butterfly appliqué! This girl gets it always, very refreshing. Notice how she pulled her hair back to show us the dress and her stunning diamonds? DIVA-esque!

amvca 5 Osas-Ajibade-600x900OSAS AJIBADE

This girl is a fashion star and a babe after my heart. She has been slaying red carpet after red carpet appearances with almost no misses. This time again, she nearly nailed it, if not for the tacky finishing of this dress (don’t argue; look at the bust area and the hemline). The truth is, most Nigerian tailors were carpenters in a previous life. Their finishing always lives a sour taste in the mouth. I put her among the hits by a hair’s breadth.

amvca 6 Minnie-Dhlamini-600x900MINNIE DHLAMINI

One word: PERFECTION! End of Story.

amvca 7 Nancy-Isime-600x900NANCY ISIME

This look was very contentious; many liked it and many did not. I loved it; my only problem was the thigh high slit; she should have let that flower be the star of the outfit. The color suits her plus her minimal use of accessories is a winner! Overall good look.

amvca 8 Blossom-Chukwujekwu-600x900BLOSSOM CHUKWUJEKWU

I want to raise that wrapper and give him a blow job! I LOVED THIS LOOK. IGBO KWENU!

He knew he was going to win and decided to make fashion history! We are going to talk about this look for a long time! I’m in love. *dials babalawo for love potion*

amvca 9 omoni oboliOMONI OBOLI

This dress is near perfection, but I’m not sure what is going on near the bust area that makes her tummy look big. It actually looked great in video, but it appears the dress doesn’t photograph well.

However someone should still call Ini Edo; this is how you wear white without going “I eloped from my wedding to be here” couture.

amvca 10 Linda-EjioforLINDA EJIOFOR

This babe is refreshing abeg! She is like a breath of fresh air. I love minimalism, and notice again how her hair is out of the way and allowing her dress to take the spotlight! Her skin is flawless, look at her shoulders! Damn! (BEST DRESSED NOMINEE)

amvca 11 Anna-Ebiere-600x900ANNA EBIERE BANNER

Yes, she looks good and all, but WHY IS SHE HERE? Besides winning some beauty pageant and having a baby for Flavor, WHY IS SHE ATTENDING? Was she in any movies last year? Abeg make I see road! The dress try sha.

*

THE ERM…OKAY

amvca 12 Kemi-Adetiba-600x900KEMI ADETIBA

I liked that she did the whole masculine look but I sincerely don’t want to see this again. It wasn’t hideous, but it wasn’t exactly flattering to her frame! Plus her hair was just everywhere, I wished she had put it all up in a round bun so we can appreciate the suit she was wearing. She actually looks like a dominatrix, and I was half expecting her to whip out a dildo and handcuffs from her jacket!

amvca 13 Funke-AkindeleFUNKE AKINDELE

The problem with Funke is that she doesn’t know how to dress for her age! This is a clear example of pretty girl (somewhat) + pretty dress who are not good together. See this dress and think Grace Egbagbe, Daisy Danjuma, Mo Abudu, and not a young girl in her thirties. The hair sef is not helping her case! Why can’t she learn from her age mates? Is it that hard?

amvca 14 Caroline-Danjuma-600x900CAROLINE DANJUMA

This is a stunning dress but unfortunately it completely washed her out. If she were darker, it would have worked, but the dress is almost the same color as her skin. You literally cannot even see where it starts and where it ends. This, with all the billions she controls? Abeg #MoneyMissRoad

amvca 15 Genevieve NnajiGENEVIEVE NNAJI

This one has crazy loyal fans like Beyoncé, so I have to be very careful here! But come on guys, this look is very underwhelming; not even the drama at the back could save it! This is a very BORING dress!

Genny is the queen of Nollywood (for her star quality please, not her acting skills… Yes, I said it) and this was supposed to be her night. And this is what she chose to wear? *inserts very long hiss* With Genevieve, it’s always hits and misses, more misses than hits, but this look was just there abeg!

amvca 16 Lilian-Esoro-600x602LILIAN ESORO

Lilian is pregnant, so I will be nice. But she should hit up Chrissy Teigen for tips on how to dress while expecting. She looks like she is wearing yellow choir robes, I half expected her to break into a soprano!

amvca 17 Rukky-Sanda-2-600x900RUKKY SANDA

I thought we left peplum behind in 2015.

amvca 18 Richard-Mofe-Damijo-1-600x900RICHARD MOFE DAMIJO

I love everything except the velvet jacket; velvet is a very tough fabric to wear and unfortunately the jacket is wearing him. However this man is ageing like fine wine; if I could look like this while being a grandfather, then Osun has been good to me.

amvca 19 Fade-OgunroFADE OGUNRO

Now a lot of people did not like this dress and I somewhat see their reason. However, I did not like this dress myself for some other reasons; majorly the tailoring of the skirt. To be honest, I loved the under boobs; to me, it was a political statement of some sort. However the tailoring of the lower part of the garment leaves a lot to be desired and screams Obioma couture. Sad really.

amvca 20 UtiUTI NWACHUKWU

This guy tries too hard; way too hard to be stylish! He actually looks like a giant yellow banana. Plus the rule of the thumb is that if we can see the creases of your suit, then it is too tight. Everything is supposed to be smooth.

Besides, was this event not held at night? In a hotel? What’s with the sunglasses? #AskingForAfriend

amvca 21 Kate-HenshawKATE HENSHAW

Surely you can afford an iron, no?

amvca 22 denola-greyDENOLA GREY

The suit is lovely, pastel looks good on him, but the tailoring is bad. Take a look at the shoulders and see the depression the lapel makes there. This is a big problem with shawl lapel, and it takes a good tailor to cut perfectly around there. Other than that, he looks okay.

*

THE WHAT-WERE-YOU-THINKING?

amvca 23 Ini-Edo-600x900INI EDO

*sigh*

Where do I start? I feel like I am Eniola Badmus’ plastic surgeon right now; where do I start cutting from?

I wanted to be nice to Ini, but where will that niceness come from. I said to myself, maybe if the dress was in another color, it would work. But then, I looked closely at it; the fabric is very tacky and cheap looking. The finishing is very poor, the fitting is not perfect, and her hair is off! I mean, what did she even get right? What? She looks like those brides who do mass weddings at Morning mass.

The truth is that the problem is Ini herself; nothing she wears has ever worked. She just doesn’t have that IT factor. The other time she wore the same dress that Lupita wore and looked like a Made-in-China Lupita. Ini has to take a break from red carpets and find her own style. (WORST DRESSED NOMINEE)

amvca 24 Dakore-AkandeDAKORE AKANDE

She looks like a present you will send to your husband’s baby mama on her birthday only because your husband insisted, so of course you will find the tackiest wrapping paper available.  This dress is so hideous that it is sad to look at; I mean, just look at the hemline, and where it is joined at the knee! It is bad enough that the fabric looks cheap, the tailoring is even cheaper! Is her tailor visually impaired?

Money doesn’t buy style, my people. It doesn’t! (WORST DRESSED NOMINEE)

amvca 25 Eku-EdeworEKU EDEWOR

Yes, Eku is a fashion girl, but wtf is this please? How do you take a stunning dress like this and ruin it with that ridiculous hairdo? What did she tie on her arms? Was she bitten by a snake and had to tie an emergency tourniquet? The hair actually looks like she wants to balance a basket of tomatoes on her head. Mtchew!

amvca 26 Yemi-Alade-600x900YEMI ALADE

Yemi is a young girl with a bubbly personality, so what was she wearing please? I see this dress and I think Angelique Kidjo, and not a young fun girl like Yemi. This look fell flat on her style face and I think she needs a new stylist. I know she was dressed by that boy who dresses Moet Abebe and makes her look like a pumpkin, so it’s not surprising. This however is a whole new level of bad!

amvca 27 Falz-1-600x900FOLARIN ‘FALZ’ FALANA

I am his fan musically; well technically mostly because I love that Karishika song, plus I get really hot and flustered when I see him on TV. But this look is a big NO-NO! I am not a fan of doing this mustard yellow head to toe, and as if that was not bad enough, the fit is horrible on top. The jacket looks stretched and the pants… Were they made by an obioma tailor? And Nigerian men… *sigh* We need to have a conversation about the appropriate length of your pants.

Sorry, kiddo, this is not werking for me.

amvca 28 Mike-Ezuruonye-600x900MIKE EZURONYE

Too many accessories in one outfit, I’m going to have a headache. Also ditch the pants, they are not werking. Less is more, darling. Less is more.

amvca 29 Nse-Ikpe-EtimNSE IKPE-ETIM

Well, she has never really been a fashion girl, so I will allow her this one. What was she aiming for, Deeper-life chic? How can you have such an amazing body and hide it under all this fabric?

Wawu!

amvca 30 Mr IbuJOHN ‘MR IBU’ OKAFOR

Well he is a comedian who apparently takes his craft seriously, on camera and off. He looks like a spare parts dealer, the kind that will sell a fake part to you though.

amvca 31 Kehinde-BankoleKEHINDE BANKOLE

I was going to shout “Slay!” Then I saw the original version of this dress and saw that hers actually looks tacky! It is my firm belief that on the last day, Nigerian tailors will have a special judgement session with God.

amvca 32 Alexx-EkuboALEX EKUBO

This is a disaster anyway you cut it.

amvca 33 Uche-JomboUCHE JOMBO

Chai! Such a JUMBO SIZED MESS! NEEEEXXXXXXXT!

amvca 35 Ibinabo-FiberesimaIBINABO FIBERESIMA

I can’t even deal right now! Like seriously, I can’t! She looks like a circus freak or one of those “show time at the Apollo” girls. I am really confused with this look. Who on earth told her this was a good idea? What do we even manage? The hair is not helping her case one bit! She needs a lesson in dressing her age; she cannot coman be dressing like a confused teenager. She actually looks like a peahen, stranded on the red carpet and confused! (WORST DRESSED NOMINEE)

amvca 36 Ebube-Nwagbo-1EBUBE NWAGBO

Nne, this is what you wore to Africa’s biggest night in film? *inserts very long hiss*

And so, after careful considerations, here are my final results.

BEST DRESSED MALE: Blossom Chukwujekwu

BEST DRESSED FEMALE: Rita Dominic

WORST DRESSED MALE: Alex Ekubo

WORST DRESSED FEMALE: Ibinabo Fiberesima

    John OCEAN!!! You lie this time, sorry I have to say smth! First! Gene’s outfit is no where close to boring, hell no!! This is a perfect dress for an award night! The hair, make up and dress! Just because she was Genevieve and virtually everyone expected so much from her! She can only do her! Not someone else! She eludes of simplicity and class! When the first picture of her surfaced online before the red carpet interview! I was sad till I saw her on telly! Omg! She blew me away! She kept it simple, spic and span. To me, she’s not even in the neighbourhood of “errrrm okay” this is slaynevieve for crying on loud hun!!!! There’s nothing boring about that look. Tbh!!

      Excuse you DM? seriously??? are you just coming??? please don’t tell me you started watching her movies just 2008. Buddy gene has paid her dues in the movie industry. She has combed all the roles, she’s been there, done that, seen that, slayed that and stunted on it.
      Now lemme tell you, Genevieve knew all her colleagues will virtually do bright colours and capes. what did she do/ she opted to be different. omg. I can’t breathe. She did what nobody could ever imagine she’ll wear. see her hair, so sleek, her make up, so angelic and her dress???????!!!!!! QUE FABULOUSA. There ios nothing boring about this dress, or you expected her to wear a dress with hideous train??? Less is more, even on red carpets. I wish hollywood fashion police will judge this and definitely, she is getting a 100. Gene knows her onions and that is why she still stayed relevant for years. Rita slayed but her hair is too busy. She woulda kept it simple. Whoever said Gene’s acting is horrible is totally funny because she is real like beans and plantian. SLAYNEVIEVE ALL DAY, EVERYDAY.

          DM didn’t just say this about Genevieve! I mean!!!! No he didn’t!!! Genevive is just an “ok” actress???? Really???? OK, I have the time now…. Lemme take you down memory lane. Did you watch Ijele, sharon stone, power of love, super love, two together? Where we’re you when Gene took up those role???? I guess you were sleeping, forgive my sarcasm. There’s this saying that goes “when you’re on top, you become the topic’ and that’s what simply qualifies Genevieve.. Did you also watch “keep my will” Gene has done every role Mercy and Co are portraying now! She’s slayed all of them. The fact that she refuse to settle for crumbs doesn’t make her an OK actress! Pls don’t judge from your own angle. Have a one and one interaction with her colleagues and hear from them. They’ll tell you that Gene is one professional phenomenal actress. She makes it so easy! She even thought Majid how to act! You don’t expect her to roll in mud to please the world that she’s good. Hunty! We her fans knows she’s good @ what she does. Maybe you don’t like her cos of the kind of grace she has. I can understand. But please don’t talk down on someone who has paid her dues! She was the first actress to win AMAA…. I’m not a fan of Beyonce but that doesn’t stop me for giving her good credit for being a hellofanentertainer…..

    Thank God there are other ppl like me who think Genevieve is over-hyped. That dress was a cheap Beyounce wannabe stunt.

    Alex Ekubo broke my heart with the rag he wore to the AMVCA, common dude is a fashionista anytime any day. Perhaps he just flew in from a weekend getway with his Senator beau.

    INI Ini, loooool, I just cant! She looks like a bride who took loan for her wedding, hence the cheap bridal gown.

    And Ibinabo just had to give us a 2016 version of Susan Peters? Lool. She should resign biko, she’s a disgrace to AGM.

    Ibinabo resemble person weh de go rag day. I couldn’t look at her twice. She wan form zendeya for met gala forgetting she’s an old woman. That dress is inappropriate for her age.
    Ini looked so awful. chai. I wonder isf she left through the back door cos the gate man alone woulda asked her to go back and pull off that tacky dress of hers. She wannid to pull off a rihanna met gala look and ended up making a huge fun of herself. 2weeks to make the dress my cake.
    Dakore, chai! when i saw her dragging her feet to come on stage to present an award, i was screaming ‘ no gurl you didn’t’ she never gets it wrong, i wonder what happened to her. she wore a foil used to wrap moi moi and looks like the disco light in escape club.
    Lilian Esoro is bae. wow, such a pretty woman and she kept it simple.
    Rita looked good and i am getting fond of her because she’s my baby’s favourite.lol

    John, what? I actually thought Lilian Ubi looked divine in that dress. Yemi Alade’s dress too was fun and made the right amount of statement(wish she would switch up that faux-hawk tho; not a fan). Lilian, Yemi and Mercy Aigbe were my favorite for the night.
    Is anybody more overrated than Rita Dominic? *rolls eyes* I really don’t see anything special in most of her outfits; Genny dresses waaaaaay better than her,in my opinion.
    Of course Ini Edo will always be Ini edo *sigh* I preferred Ibinabo’s “costume”(for lack of a better word) to that contraption Ini was wearing.Ibinabo made me smile and u could tell she wasn’t taking herself too seriously in that dress; she didn’t come to slay; she came to play (in a good way,lol).
    I think Mai Atafo was my worst dressed male; those shoes look like something a child’s imaginary friend (the type that’s made of cotton candy and part elephant and part dolphin) would wear. I suppose he thinks because he’s Nigeria’s Foremost male designer,any fashion statement he makes must enter the rule-book..MISS ME!

    The only reason Rukky Sanda’s outfit is unappealing is cos of d color NOT the peplum. Face it, Rita wore one, albeit as long as a cape.
    I loved Lilian Esoro’s outfit abeg. It reminded me of Hippolyta, Diana’s ‘mom’. She looked as regal as a queen mother jare

    I agree with some and disagree with others. Gennys was good, simple nailed it. Blossom was equally fantastic, I loved how he went cultural and he did it just right.
    RMD wore the velvet right, it wasn’t wearing him.
    I believe kehinde bankole looked stunning in that dress and yes I’ve seen the original. Only difference was the neckline.
    Kate slayed that dress, it’s the fabric that gives off that unironed look the longer you wear it.
    Jesu, is uche jumbo now that jumbocious?
    Ibinabo is really representing her prison constituency.

    Lmao whoever wrote this thing has no taste.

    Nse and Ebube’s dresses channeled Carolina Herrera/Dior and were done perfectly (More Nse). Kate’s skirt is meant to be rumpled…that is the style. Denola’s suit is impeccable. WHAT depressed lapel? Reaching. Eku Edewor looks like she’s in Cannes. She doesn’t even belong on the same carpet as this people. That Tsemaye Binitie dress is flawless and her braided bun perfectly complements the look. Dakore’s dress shone on the carpet. Armani Privé uses that exact fabric so no it isn’t cheap. Tight maybe, but not cheap. Lilian is wearing a similar silhouette as Beyonce did when she announced she was expecting Blue. Kemi’s suit reminded you of a dominatrix? Really? Never heard of Victor/Victoria? Could’ve been better tailored but how do you link woman in suit to dominatrix?

    PP please be vetting these people.

    Genevieves dress was cute,simple and elegant, you don’t open the back and open the front, its conservative, its mature. Amvca is like the Oscars here,you bring maturity, and class not drama and cheap things. Whoever wrote this has no taste and I would really love to see you style someone or what u look like. And Genevieves acting, smh,wont even talk about that coz it seems you were born yesterday, she thought Mercy how to act,Majid,Joseph Benjamin and Oris,they all said so and your here spilling rubbish, nkapi please. And Denola looked awesome, hate,make e no kill u ooo
