It definitely looks like the Agbada fever has taken over as more celebrities are beginning to rock the outfit with pride.

Latest to rock the ‘Agbada’ outfit is ‘Love Me Jeje’ crooner, Seyi Sodimu who rocked different traditional outfit styles in his recently released pictures.

It can be recalled that Seyi recently shot the video of ‘Love Me Jeje’ remix featuring US R&B singer K. Michelle produced by Shizzi.

There is a feeling of authority, confidence and power on a man wearing this traditional wear. As Africans, Nigerians especially, the Agbada is a trademark, its a way of differentiating the rich and classy man from others. However, that is even changing now, because they have noticed the power this item of clothing radiates and every man wants to ba a part of it. It can be sewn with different fabrics, Ankaras, lace, aso-oke, guinea etc.

Agbada gives a man class. It empowers THE MAN!

Dashiki’s, Buba and Sokoto and Agbada are great pointers. Tracing our history as Africans, this item is only worn by our rulers, chiefs and anybody in a powerful position. During those times, you cannot just wear Agbada to the farm or to a function. It was left for the rich and the royal family.

Modernisation, however has changed matters. Every man is a man of calibre, power and authority in his own little way. The Agbada then, was only worn to functions. but, even now, the president wears it to conferences and meetings outside the country. This is not to say it’s a Monday wear. It’s just shows how our tradition has been fully embraced and celebrated.
