American-Nigerian star, Jidenna is the classic man in a Nigerian inspired photo shoot marking the 2015 edition of All Things Ankara Ball. Themed the “Nigerian Renaissance” Jidenna and philanthropist and model, Jessica Chibueze who are the official ambassadors to All Things Ankara Ball 2015, show off their Nigerian pride in the photo shoot and the accompanying short film.
The “Nigerian Renaissance” theme is the fusion of French Renaissance and Nigerian-African Aesthetics. According to the All Things Ankara Ball team, the goal “is to display, expose and educate, the public and the world to the rich culture of a Nigerian Renaissance man and woman through illuminating Ankara Print Fashion and vibrant craftsmanship.”
In the photo shoot, Jidenna and Jessica are dressed in green and white colours that represents the colour of the Nigerian flag.
