Who Wins the N250,000 Prize? Choose NOW! 12 Finalists Emerge for the PEPSI Cheerleader Uniform Contest for Copa Lagos 2011 on



After painstaking deliberation, we have chosen the 12 finalists for the PEPSI Cheerleader Uniform for Copa Lagos 2011 on Contest!

Every single entry wsd evaluated by the BN team. As we did not explicitly disqualify multiple entries in the contest announcement, all entries were evaluated.
Rest assured that every entry was given fair consideration.

Criteria for Shortlisting

  • Design Innovation and Creativity
  • Integration of the Pepsi colours
  • Appropriateness for the purpose (i.e cheerleading)

As this is not a sketching contest, quality of sketches was not a factor, rather the design was the main focus. As you can see from the finalists selected, there were different types of sketches submitted.

For candidates who submitted explanatory writeups, this has been included below. However, the quality of the note was not evaluated and did not play a role in judging.

We were TOTALLY blown away by the quality and quantity of entries from all over the country! From our youngest entrant – Little Miss Demi (age 9) to all the others – we will like to say a big THANK YOU to all the participants! We are sincerely grateful. Please do not be discouraged if you did not make the shortlist.

Please vote for your favourite. We are also looking forward to your comments.

The Pepsi Copa Lagos beach soccer event is one that would bring fun and exercise to mind, so when I put pen to paper to design these outfits I thought of exciting colourful outfits that would bring out the ‘cheer’ in the spectators and give them something to chat about.

The outfits were inspired by the average youthful girl cheerleader and how she would love to look stylish while doing something she loves. I also drew inspiration from comic superheroines and the way they look supercool in their costumes. So I got these designs by mixing up both factors.

As for the fabric choice to be used it would have to be mainly Jersey because it stretches well and if cut properly would look fabulous on all the cheerleaders. Also some outfits would require shiny buttons and glittering fabric/material to execute the detailing and add some sparkle to the outfits. Colour arrangements can definitely be rearranged to give the cheerleaders a little variety altogether.
I hope these scanned copies portray the outfits properly because they are more beautiful in hard copy. Thank you.

My proposed fabric of choice is a combination Nylon and Spandex. Nylon dries fast is made of strong fibers and fits the body well while Spandex is in almost every swimsuit because of its desirable elasticity. I’m looking at 70% Nylon and 30% Spandex.
My key influences for my design were PEPSI – for the colours of the uniform / Copa Lagos Beach Soccer Logo for the Star line on the top and bottom / The Beach – for the outfit style (Bum Shorts & Tank Top Styled Tee) and African Culture – Bracelets and Anklets.

Its indeed a great honour and priviledge to participate in making a sketch for designing the cheerleader uniform for COPA Lagos, according to the brief Copa Lagos is a Beach Soccer, and beach is a place where by one wants to move freely with a very light cloths on, so i choose to design a jersy uniform, in my design I’ve been able to put together the look and feel of a football partern using a polygon, looking at it deeply I form a trendy native design that yoruba people called (Tinko) also I’ve been able to depict a brand with the brand partten and colours, this I call cheerleader uniform design for Copa Lagos.

Materials to be used: polyester and net, for easy wear and to enable breeze penetrate.

Name: Ntukokwu Obinna Samuel L
Age: 23
A cheerleader’s costume is designed strictly for identification. My look is inspired by a leg kicking a can of Pepsi from both sides having the content burst out, forming the pompom. The pompom would be the content, made with aluminium foil and ribbons; brown, silver and gold colour. The Shell (top) has the Pepsi logo in front, the “legs” forming the sleeve down, then blue back; stopping a little below the Midriff. The Skirt is in two shades of Red, all made of Polyester “jersey-like” material. The neck line metallic colour to form the top of the Pepsi can.

Hey I really don’t know a lot about fabrics…but I think I’ll just describe it:
Dotted lines: shiny silver color
Hairy Style around the neck & skirt: white fur like
Line on the left hand: silvery blue & red
blue strips: shiny glossy fabric
others: elastic fabric kind of
Inspiration for Design
I have never done any uniform sketch before so when I heard about the challenge I just told my graphics friends about it but they all ignored. I then decided that since there was nothing to lose on this one let me give it a try…and here I am.

Fabric material – Silk and Sari

Name: Liadi Bolaji

Name: Korede Awofuwa

I’m very glad to be part of this creative opportunity. I’m an artist and I love challenges, splendid artworks and originality in creativity. My uniform design is attached herewith. I believe the uniform should be sexy,simplicity,comfortabilty and style also matter here so the red rose, and the folded fabric (probably tafeta material) forming pleats is the concept. I’ve put in place here. Thanks.

Name: Ifeneme Pamela
Age: 19
The best choice of fabric I would recommend for this cheer-leading uniform is polyester woven fabric, because of it’s shiny surface, texture and it’s breathable. The skirt of this uniform is a little shorter by the sides than in front, allowing the small shorts which is joint underneath the skirt show at the sides. I was inspired by many American high school movies I’ve seen. And always thought about beach and fun while designing.

Name: Ayo Ilori
Age: 25
Fun, flirty and colorful are words that popup when I describe my vision for this piece. Inspired mostly by the Pepsi logo and a checker patterned football, I chose to reflect similar curves. The curved cut-out in front forms a partial view of the letter “P”, inspired by the name PEPSI while the cut-out behind, forms a “C”, for the name COPA. The proposed fabric choice is Jersey. A few heat transfers here and there. . . appliques, buttons . . .and there’s the dress!

I do hope it’s loved and I’m grateful for the opportunity to show it. Thank you!

Name: Ian Chukwuma Audifferen
Age: 21
This is my take on the Cheerleader outfit for the Pepsi challenge.
I was inspired by the cheerleaders of the 50’s and 60’s where it was modest, minimal and chick, and all about cheerleading. A time where form met function. I tried to translate this aesthetic to my design, but in a modern silhouette. Minimalist top with the pepsi logo over laid on the neck line ( half in the front,
and half in the back) making a neck applique. The back with a racer-detail (from a lighter more breathing fabric) for aeration, and anti-perspiration.

The skirt is pleated with a side ‘tassel/ pop-pom’ detail, to keep with the spirit of cheering and crowd excitement. its is a mini, but a bit longer than the stereotypical cheerleaders skirt, I kept it a bit short because of safety reasons, it is a sport and the girls will require freedom. **But to be worn under the skirt is a pair of polyester-spandex tights to keep the wearer covered and decent. This is my design. I believe its minimal, classy and sexy (without being over-sexy).

Congrats to all the finalists!
Please VOTE.

      December 9, 2011 at 10:30 am

      Maureens choice of fabric is so off, its a beach wear and the fabric should be water resistant. I think Uzoamakas design is classic and the fabric choice of lycra/spandex is appropriate

    Bella naija, you shouldn’t base the results on votes coz it will become a “popularity contest” instead of a talent competition. The designs leading, are in no way the best (my opinion). If i was in the competition i could get all my friends and friends of friends to vote for my design but don’t think it would be appropriate for you to allow this to happen.

    maureen’s the best……very creative….modest…..but still extremely hot!

  31. beau

    December 9, 2011 at 3:19 am

    As far as my vote it’s a three way competition btwn Ayo, Michael & Obinna.
    Maureen’s fan club I see u, una do well, but really, seriously really? Silk n sari? Common now.

  32. Tara

    December 9, 2011 at 4:43 am

    Ian Chukwuma Audifferen’s is HOT. i think it is the most thought out and as far as style goes, the most conscious, the other contestants have all done well but my vote goes out to him.

  33. stephanie

    December 9, 2011 at 4:52 am

    i can see why everyone thinks maureen should win. nice use of colours, but I think Ian did a great job. a very understated and classy design his is up to date (fashion wise) but also timeless. i think he should win. He gets my vote.

  34. Bobby Emeka

    December 9, 2011 at 5:55 am

    Obinna Omeruo all the way. Hez design is very creative, stylish and hot.

  35. dangel eyez

    December 9, 2011 at 6:11 am

    i love Ian Audifferen too.. its sexy and different yet sweet and simple plus bringing the oldies back is the latest trend. his description shows he thought it out very well too (choice of fabric and design/style choice)and i love how and where the logo is ” Minimalist top with the pepsi logo over laid on the neck line ( half in the front,and half in the back) “. makes sense.
    anyways, its great to see competitions like this and may the best design win .
    i’m hoping its not just going to be based on popularity..maybe this whole voting thing can be used to get the top 6 and then the best design will be selected from there. *my opinion*
    goodluck to everyone 😀

  36. angelspy

    December 9, 2011 at 6:50 am

    The two Obinna’s nailed it! good job u two

  38. Nelly Nzewi

    December 9, 2011 at 6:58 am

    My vote goes 2 Obinna Samuel Ntukokwu.his design is youthful without prejudice well thought and done…a good one.

  39. Uju

    December 9, 2011 at 7:03 am

    Abeg, Maureen’s is the best.
    Ehen, so what if it is silk and sari?
    They can change the material.
    Hers (with Ian’s) is the classiest. The other outfits are “barely there”.
    It’s a design competition for a CHEERLEADING OUTFIT not a swimming suit or underwear.

  40. Selina

    December 9, 2011 at 7:16 am

    Ian’s style is well thought out and consistent. Cheer leading is a sport..the clothes are suppose to be comfortable and suitable for the sport and the environment. It’s the perfect outfit for full figured and petite ladies. It would look good on anyone. My vote goes out to him. Every other one kinda has the same thing going on. Nothing else struck as much as his did…. He is the most creative so far. Kuddos Ian.

  41. jakpa johns

    December 9, 2011 at 8:48 am

    Omeruo Obinna is a very creative designer and one of naija young best stylist..Obinna all da way… you represent fashion in west africa!!!my vote goes to you bro

    Omeruo, makes more sense when compared to the lot selected by BN. Are you sure this was the best? or where you just tired of seeing so many sketches you selected the ugliest? Not impressed, but if you are certain this is all you can get. then i will say Omeruo.

  53. Dellia

    December 9, 2011 at 10:43 am

    am so impressed @ Obinna Omeruo, Micheal Ohwoka and Ayo ilori, that i cannot decide the winner, their styles are so nice and creative, thumbs up guys. The competition should just be streamlined to the three of you, cos as far as am concerned, this show is just about the three of you…..go guys

  54. Lue

    December 9, 2011 at 10:45 am

    December 9, 2011 at 11:09 am

    as a cheerleader your outfit is supposed to be free cos dre is goin to be a lot of jumping up and down abi people are voting for maureen because her out fit is fashionable she should sell it to LDS or on of dese degigners she myt even get more dan the 250k but from my own opinion its not good for cheerleadin becos i dont see any comfort in this outfit AYO ILORI has to be it for me. then again abeg abeg whats with the heely shoes and the ankle boots we nigerians like over doin soin na cheerleadin no be party ushers.

    • BABE

      December 9, 2011 at 4:13 pm

      Excuse me but You sound ignorant…yes its supposed to be free… they wear shorts under their skirts…that you are a cheerleader doesnt mean you have to be skimpy…stop lookin at movies…even in its origin USA…they donyt always wear skimpy outfits…i was in the team, when i was in Uk and our uniform was a bit covered like maureens….as long as the skirt is free you wear tights, shorts under…they all got teh design of a cheerleader right in their own ways….cheerleader does not always equal naked…it could be a short skirt, full top and undershorts…as for the material…they could always change it.

    December 9, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    Personally i would say maureen and pamela…..I also like ian & ayo…Maureens own is stylish and free as well…yes cheerleaders can wera full outfits it doesnt always have to be revealing ..look at Usa & long as is free its fine…and this is Nigeria, the average person doesnt have a flat tommy so it is not really realistic… i would say Maureen …stylish, elegant and appropriate

  65. Ernest

    December 9, 2011 at 12:39 pm

    I like Ifeneme work because it was natural and creative…Some where using already made graphic applications like Photoshop and 3D to achieve their work of art which is outside the scope of the competition, I adore Maureen and Obinna work…Nice one and thumbs up.

    I love plus sized women. I’m a full figured woman myself but I doubt if I’d like to see Mr. Liadi Bolaji’s plus sized cheerleader. I can’t imagine a woman that big doing a trapeze or something.

    Uzoamaka’s design rocks! Simple and cute!

    December 9, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    Bella, if u notice the trend of competitions where the winner is left to the public to decide, most times its not the person that deserves it most that wins. That said, it will be better if u base d winner on 50% voters opinion and 50% opinion of ppl in the sports/fashion industry…..and if these are the tp 12 designs, i can only imagine wat some other looked like, cos we ave like 5 major missesin this top 12….personally i think Obinna Omerwuo has the best design…chic, classy, sporty and all that…..cheerleading requires a lot of jumping, y come out in an ankaraish gown or skirt and blouse???????

  72. speaktheword

    well its supposed to be a graphical representation and hand sketch or computer generated i feel we should vote for the concept and i kinda like ayo’s design

  85. sean

    December 9, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    In my opinion, Ayo’s got the best presentation. Also, I see where he’s going with his story. I get it and I like it. But BN should pls do an investigation whether its all hand sketched or graphic-aided. If he’s “clean”, then my vote goes to Ayo Ilori all the way.

    Obinna Omeruo’s work is contemporary,originally and achievable. He really deserves to be handed the 1st position and every gift that comes with it. this will encourage more of such works that can pass in any art gallery shop. Ayo will be second.

  95. Richfield Anah

    December 9, 2011 at 7:51 pm

    Ayo’s design is an international class of design, it’s neat, creative, and will maintain pepsi’s image: Drogba, Mikel and the rest will like it.

  96. Esther David

    December 9, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    I think Ayo Ilori has the concept of what a cheerleader should look like, she would not only get to the heart of teenagers but adults as well; baseball fans too would like the outfit.

  97. kenny oni

    Dickson gets my vote for including the African bangles, it gives a Nigerian feel to the otherwise American concept of cheerleading.

      December 10, 2011 at 11:31 am

      someone has said something reasonable for the first time..we are voting based on sentiments especially if we have closed affinity with any of the contestant..dickson’s work is professional enough!

  106. Joy

    December 10, 2011 at 1:55 am

    Ayo has the best design, hands down that represents what cheerleading is about. However, I like to appreciate people who hand sketch. So, I will go for Obinna, well thought and put together. Also, Maureen very fashionable, and classy. Interesting, Okorie is the least of my favorite.

    December 10, 2011 at 11:02 am

    Maureen is just the best.She has all it takes to win this,from the sketch,I see a good artist,a designer and a star that would shine even beyond this competition.

  116. bigshow

    December 10, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    as 4 me, ayo’s design is quite good but here in nigeria, u wouldn’t want a situation whereby all of your body parts are been revealed….check out sprite triple slam to see what am talking about….that said, i would go for Michael Ohwoka…

  117. Valentine Anijah

    December 10, 2011 at 1:58 pm

    Thumbs up to all †̥ђ
    ξ designers…they all deserve to be part of †̥ђξ best 12… Bt I knw Olukoya Oladapo’s design i̶̲̥̅̊s̶̲̅ still †̥ђξ best so far. He brought in cultural relevance into his design. Cheerleader’s costume shld be very comfortable…he has done justice to that.
    He i̶̲̥̅̊s̶̲̅ also detailed, like hw he gave prominence to Pepsi’s logo. he also wnt as far as doing a male’s design. Male cheerlead too!

  119. Yetunde Ogundipe

    thumbs up to all the designers….they all deserve to be part of the best 12….bt I knw Olukoya Oladapo’s design is the best so far. thumbs up for his originality in terms of the cultural relevance to his design. Cheerleader’s costume shld be comfortable, he has done justice to that.
    He is also detailed. Like he gave prominence to Pepsi’s logo. He also went as far designing a male’s costume. I dance, and we do’have male cheerleaders too! in terms of confort, two other design are similar to Olukoya’s, bt his is insightful.

    Ok pple, let’s not judge based on relatnshp with contestants. I see maureen has done a good job gathering her fans, buh pls let’s be properly guided and sincere with our votes. For me, AYO ILORI is one of d best here, graphic or no graphic. To d lady who talked bout cheerleading in d UK, have u thot of thinking outside d box? Not everything u see abroad must apply.

  125. moji

    December 10, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    I vote for Uzoamaka. That design is world class. Not local at all. For those that have eyes. It is what the most popular designer will come up with if the girls are to cheer in front of Obama, Mrs Sirleaf, Desmond Tutu and Fashola.
    Period. That’s what we need. Worldclass. Because Pepsi is worldclass

  126. adaobi

    December 10, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    Its definitely Ayo Ilori. That dress is sexy for pepsi.

    December 11, 2011 at 12:52 am

    Let’s not talk much… cheerleading is about the simplicity yet the style, now we don’t want the pepsi cheerleaders to be feeling pretty uncomfortable in their outfits. OBINNA NTUKOKWU SAMUEL aka NAKED-PHOBIA has the best desing. the style is on point and it will help the ladies perform at their peak.
