Hit or Miss? Darey Art-Alade’s Polka Dot Inspired Cover for Vanguard Allure


Music star Darey Art-Alade is set to land some amazing milestones this February. He is on the cover of Vanguard Allure’s latest issue rocking a white and red polka dot shirt against a polka dot background of the same colour.

Some of his fans have called it artistic while others have called it a complete miss.

What do you think?

In the magazine he talks about his upcoming projects especially his concert in a couple of weeks where international music star Ciara will be performing.

    He’s a’ight on the cover. It’s interesting. Be a clown, be a clown, all the world loves a clown.

    Great musician, I hope there’s a next level for him, work-wise. I really really respect his work so far.
