Woven Blends On – Keeping It Casual With Adekunle Gold


When asked about his style, Adekunle described it as “Afrocentric, Urban and Simple.”

Known first for his photoshop talents, Adekunle Gold is now one of Nigerias most sought after musicians. His vocals and African dress sense are unique to his personality. Not only does he have a good voice, he writes good songs.

No wonder he is one of my favourite people, as his artistic ways speak so much to me. In the past couple of months, I have gotten to know Adekunle better on a personal level and his persona is nothing short of what I expected.

While in Atlanta, we hung out a couple of times and I decided impromptu to shoot with him.



In a bid to match our outfits, we decided to keep our looks within the same colour scheme. I wore a pair of high waisted jeans, with this sweat-shirt like crop top, and some red addidas sneaks.

Adekunle wore blue patterned adire pants he made – with a white shirt to match my outfit and red sneakers too. I wore sunnies to match his look.

For a shoot that was unplanned, it went really well. For the first time, I was not shy to ask a stranger in the street to please take a picture for me.



Both our looks are super casual and can be worn just about anywhere. Although both are typically street looks, both outfits can be worn to hang out with friends or to run errands as they are super fashionable and comfortable. I definitely need me a pair of the female version of adire pants – because I believe in African fabrics and overall, I am a lover of prints.


This is my first feature on my blog and I hope to do more of these in future either on my own or with external help. I love how this post has something for both males and females – this makes it different from all my other blog posts.

What do you guys think about our looks? yay or nay? I think YAY!

  1. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer. Superb Blog!

  2. Hi are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you require any html coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  4. Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
