“Why do you feel people shouldn’t dress how they like when they don’t give themes” – Toyin Lawani questions AMVCA

Toyin Lawani questions why AMVCA doesn't give a theme

Nigerian celebrity stylist and designer Toyin Lawani of Tiannah Empire has called out the African Magic Viewers Choice Award AMVCA over their lack of theme each year.

Ahead of the award show this weekend, she noted how AMVCA has never declared a theme for their event. She questioned why people wouldn’t dress how they like when they don’t give a theme.

Tiannah noted how AMVCA is our biggest creative award show in Nigeria, and she feels actresses and artists take a moment to express themselves and stand out during the away ceremony. She pointed out how some conform to what’s expected of them per societal norms, and some go out of the box.

She added that until AMVCA gives them a theme to adhere to yearly, everyone should continue to have fun at the show and express themselves. Wishing everyone the best, she said she looks forward to all the amazing looks on the red carpet.

Take this moment to express yourself and stand out,
Some conform to what’s expected of them as per societal norms, and some go out of the box,
So I feel until Amvca starts giving us a theme to adhere to yearly,
Everyone should continue to have fun at the show and express themselves.

Toyin Lawani questions why AMVCA doesn't give a theme

Over the years, Toyin Abraham has become well-known for her creative and over-the-top fashion designs.

Last year, during the Christmas celebration, Toyin had ditched the usual pyjamas for Christmas shoots and opted for a more creative and out-of-the-box outfit. The wife of Segun Wealth made a dress and a cape from 1000 pepper and 70 mops.

Sharing the inspiration behind her outfit, Toyin stated that she has been through a lot this year, which led her to put a lot of thought into her yearly Christmas shoot.

Her outfit no doubt caused a stir online as while some praised her for her creativity, others bashed her. Reacting to the criticisms, Toyin told her haters to jump off a cliff as she is the King of Fashion while adding that fashion is pain.

Months back, fans of Toyin Lawani had hailed her after American rapper Cardi B’s daughter, Kulture, rocked one of her outfits.

The celebrity stylist, who couldn’t believe her eyes, shared a video of the 5-year-old wearing a hand-painted jacket designed by her as she expressed joy at finally being recognised internationally, especially by a celebrity like Cardi B.
