The world of fashion is filled with nuances and subtleties. It is a world that allows people freely express their artistic proclivities as they deem fit, and with its ever-evolving nature, trends are bound to change, and landscapes are guaranteed to shift.
With each year, we get a feel of new movements or witness old trends make splashing comebacks, leaving room for new discoveries in both talents and looks. Every year, Modaculture takes a close look at 9 Nigerian male influencers who are shaping the world of fashion in Nigeria. In 2021, the power list, curated by Enioluwa Adeoluwa, featured names like Tope Okunuga, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Jeho Created, Olupekan Tijesunimi, Noble Igwe, etc. This year, we return to present the 2022 list of 9 powerful Nigerian male influencers.
