“Be satisfied with your business, and learn to love what you were bred to.” This quote by Marcus Aurelius best describes the disposition of Nigerian celebs and socialites when it comes to embracing the art of entertainment and its fashionable demands. Round-the-clock, it seems like they were born to slay, and with how dedicated they are, it appears this is one business they may be getting an impressive ROI from. Last week was packed with lots of high-end fetes and a resultant sartorial overflow, and Nigerian comedian Anita Asuoha‘s (Real Warri Pikin) 10th-year wedding anniversary party was the main Lagos party
The comedian got married again to the love of her life, Ikechukwu Asuoha, and the dream wedding, which trended with the acronym ANIIKE 2023, was an obvious talk of the town affair. Celebrities, influencers, and the entire crème de la crème of Lasgidi packed full punches of steez as they attended this star-studded event. There was an abundance of solid Instagrammable shots that blessed our TLs with the trendiest coordinations. It was a large fiesta of texture play and unique spins on otherwise traditional ensembles. We call it the Naija flavor because there’s no party like a Lagos party.
#2. Shaffy Bello’s sheer maxi
Rich Aunty Vibe called, and Shaffy Belloanswered. The veteran actress ate and left no crumbs in this offering. She wore a sheer V-neck yellow number with black appliques from the waist down. Lady Bello then put a spin on it with a fascination by Urez Kulture.
#3. Lilian Afegbai’s mermaid dress
Lilian Afegbai, aka Akanchawa Baddie, understands the role sophisticated simplicity plays, and this dress by Koma Osalor does it. From its intricately woven fine details to the tailoring, the structured masterpiece played up her frame. The embellishments on the bustier and pleated off-the-shoulder sleeve had enough room to accommodate the two straps of the neckline and her personality.
#5. Ini Dima Okojie’s metallic accents
The ANIIKE 2023 wedding party wouldn’t be complete without this piercing headgear (gele) spotted on Nancy Isime. The accessory from Abeke Makeovers sprinkled a heavy dose of ritz to the look featuring a gorgeous high-slit dress by Medlin Boss with egregious embellishments, silver strappy sandals, and floral-inspired earrings.
Social media comedian Sophia Chisom was a sight for sore eyes in a heavily studded Khavhia woman corset dress. The figure-flaunting dress played up her curves and her velvet headwrap was a delicate crowning for the culture. The ANIIKE 2023 wedding party had these socialites going off in all the right directions.
