AphroDIJA, the music starlet under Don Jazzy’s Super Mavin Dynasty has grown into quite the fashionista, following in the steps of Tiwa Savage’s iconic partnership with Bridget Awosika at the start of her career. As we celebrate Dija’s embrace of Nigerian fashion and the visibility a pop star of her status affords Nigerian labels, we count down our best five looks from her.
SUNNY ROSE AT THE 2015 LAGOS FASHION AND DESIGN WEEK.
Di’Ja has had quite the partnership with Nigerian designer Sunny Rose and we have seen her wear a number of Sunny Rose pieces for many of her concert performances. But we didn’t realise the extent of their collaborations until we were surprised by Di’Ja wearing the label at the LFDW 2015. She took it one step further, performing during the label’s showcase of their Spring 2016 collection wearing the brand. If that isn’t amazing, we don’t know what is.
VONNE DIFFUSION FOR THE GLO/CAF AWARDS.
Ever ahead of trends? Di’Ja was one of the first celebrities we saw in Yvonne Nwosu’s debut collection for her diffusion line, Vonne. Wearing accessible pieces and celebrating them on a global stage is why we are here and we’re glad she shares this vision too.
HOUSE OF TITI AT THE ACCESS MAVIN CONCERT.
Di’Ja has a well defined style and she isn’t afraid to mix and match pieces to suit the occasion, which is what she did for her Access Mavin concert, pairing her all black look with a tulle layered skirt from upcoming label, House of Titi. And she slays it, utterly.
HUDDAYA AT THE KADUNA MUSIC FESTIVAL.
Kaduna state held it’s first state sponsored music festival late last year, inviting artistes from across the country to perform. Di’Ja who was raised in Kaduna state was invited to perform as well and she made a statement while respecting her Muslim roots in a one-of-a-kind Kimono from Huddaya. Modest fashion just the way we like it.
FRUCHE FOR TAKE KISS VIDEO.
Most recently Di’Ja reached out to designer Frank Aghuno for pieces from his Spring 2016 collection which she used in her newest video ‘Take Kiss.’ From the Youtube numbers, the video is expected to hit one million views pretty soon. What better way to promote a Nigerian label?
We love what you’re doing Di’Ja, never change!
