6 Style tips for Jhene Aiko now that she’s a Yoruba wife

Dear Jhene Aiko
First of all congratulations on your wedding, when’s the baby coming through? We wish you marital bliss and all that good stuff but we don’t think you really understand what exactly you’ve gotten yourself into. So we decided to help you out, before your mother-in-law comes cracking down on you.

These are the best style tips you need to know as a proper Yoruba wife.

  1. You are going to have to get rid of the tattoos. Trust us it’s only a matter of time before you are summoned to a family meeting about them. And that meeting is one you’ll definitely want to miss.
  2. You need to learn how to tie gele and iro properly. Especially your iro, there’s a method to it, that ensures you are not binding your legs too tightly together. You can ask your mother-in-law for help with these things but you’ll never hear the last of it so just google YouTube tutorials
  3. On stage or off stage, you can’t wear outfits like the one below anymore. It doesn’t matter what part of the world you might be performing, in fact the performance might not even have any press coverage, but news about what you were wearing is guaranteed to go back to your husband’s family.
  4. You can’t go wrong wearing lace or ankara, especially if you bought it from your mother-in-law’s friend’s shop.
  5. We are sorry but the piercings have to go too. Especially the nose one, we can’t have your mother-in-law’s friends asking her what’s wrong with her daughter-in-law.
