This weekend will be a busy one for Eko Hotel in Lagos, Nigeria as guests from all over the continent of Africa will be gathering to celebrate award winners at the SoundCity Music Video Awards. It’s an exciting thing to witness…y’know Africa celebrating our own in the entertainment industry. I mean if we don’t, who will so I am all for recognizing those who are making us proud through their respective means.
As the likes of Banky W, P-Square, 2Face, Wande Coal and many more will be entering the place with high hopes of winning an award. Another segment has been added to act as a pre-show for the main award show hosted by BBA winner Uti Nwachukwu. Yes! The most talked about fashion designers in Africa will be coming together to display their work in a pre-fashion show to jump start the evening.
Here are the list of designers:
David Tlale (South Africa)
Dax Martin (South Africa)
Jewels by Lisa (Nigeria)
Lanre Da Silva Ajayi (Nigeria)
Odio Mimonet (Nigeria)
Tiffany Amber (Nigeria)
ZiZi Cardow (Nigeria)
Mustafa Hassanali (Tanzania)
Mai Atafo (Nigeria)
With this designer line up, I’m sure the show promises to be a hit. I mean these designers have covered much needed ground as some were featured in plenty of magazines here and abroad. Even designer Folake Colarin-Coker for Tiffany Amber was featured on CNN. Designer Lanre Da Silva is currently on the cover of Genevieve Magazine. David Tlale and Jewels by Lisa were apart of the ThisDay Arise Fashion Show as well as New York Fashion Week. As designer Mustafa Hassanali was featured designer in Swahili Fashion Week in Tanzania earlier this month.
I suggest you hit up their sites and see for yourself!
(P.S. Congrats in advance to all the winners)
