Speaking on why Yemi was chosen as the brand’s ambassador, Ronke Ademiluyi said, “This year, we chose someone who embodies the true African woman. A strong, intellectual and musically inclined woman; her music reflects what’s good, what’s great and what’s best about the motherland. We couldn’t have chosen anyone more suitable to be our brand ambassador.
Africa Fashion Week Nigeria will be taking place between July 1st and to July 2016 3rd. It will feature a fashion exhibition and showcase of upcoming and established designers. The London edition will take place in August, as usual.
