Just Like His Music, Burna Boy's Style Is Taking Centre Stage
Toxic masculinity is so deeply ingrained in our society that fashion is mostly only geared towards women, leaving men little options to actually explore. That is changing these days, thanks to stylish men like Bayo Oke-Lawal of Orange Culture and Adekunle Gold.
The latest addition to that list is Burna Boy, whose distinct style is now garnering almost as much attention as his amazing music.
We all know that Burna Boy likes to go against the grain, and it's evident from his music — where he proudly announces his drug habits in a society as judgemental as ours — and his outlandish style, that's so eclectic, you never know what to expect next.
Burna Boy is styled by his sister, Ronami, who painstakingly ensures that his personality always shines through. If we had to describe his style, we would call it effortlessly cool, and even though he never looks conventional, he hardly ever misses the mark.
Unafraid to wear super bright colours, like pink or orange, Burna Boy's style, both on stage and off, is impossible to ignore. That explains why fashion behemoth, Vogue has even taken note, describing his style as vibrant.
It's great how we can see that even though he has a stylist, his style is still quintessentially his. He wears all his outfits, no matter how outlandish they might seem, with confidence and attitude, and that's really all anyone needs to look good.
