After the grand London Premiere of Turning Point, Nollywood producer/director Niyi Towolawi premiered the movie in Lagos on Friday 24th May 2013 at the Silverbird Galleria, Lagos.

Celebrities including OC Ukeje, Monalisa Chinda and her beau Lanre Nzeribe, Desmond Elliot, Oge Okoye, Segun Arinze, Uru Eke, Charles Novia and Anthony Monjaro were in attendance.

One attendee who caught our eye at the premiere was rising actor Uti Nwachukwu in an Arabian outfit. Check out his look!

The former BBA winner wore a blue Dish-dash-ah/Thoub (Long sleeve one piece) and styled it with a black Ogal (The black band of his head) and a red, gold and green Shumagg (Scarf). He completed his look with black beads, dark shades and silver slippers.

Also spotted in the same look at the event was designer Yomi Casual.

Recently, Nollywood star Susan Peters was spotted in an Indian sari at the premiere of Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha‘s “On Bended Knees”. Should our celebrities keep wearing Indian and Arabian pieces or they should make it STOP?

    Uti and Yomi actually look nice. I don’t think there is anything wrong with it as long as they can pull it off well. Afterall, we sometimes see western celebs rocking our African prints.

      But this Uti and Yomi, dem plan am? I suppose the highly probable answer is “Yes”. And yes, I agree to your proviso about them pulling off the look well. In this particular scenario, I say “nay” to Uti’s look and “yelz” to Yomi’s.

      Uti just had too many colors going on there, I felt like he could have done away with the headscarf (I forget its arabic name) and gone for something a bit muted especially with the startling blue tunic (I forget its arabic name) and silver slippers (which I initially thought were bathroom slippers).

    Alright. I like Uti but the man tries too hard. I like self- expression but many things about him seems forced from his tight clothes, his appearance, to his “unconventional” music.

    He tries too hard! A man should look good without looking like he thinks about fashion all the time. Uti looks like a fashion victim! Plus the flip flops just killed the whole thing!

    The other guy looks a bit better.

    u who is asking this question, do you dress in your traditional nigerian attire which should be either nudity or leaves/animal skin? don’t we all dress in western attire even though some of them may be made from ankara or batik/tie and dye which are not original to us.
