    what the F… is on their head… this is NOT! Fashion, yeah the clothes are ok but the weave or whatever that is on the models head and make up and pouting is ridiculous. If he thinks that’s where fashion began, he is clearly deranged… *sigh smh*

      “He” didn’t style the collection. He didn’t design the clothes. He on;y modeled them. An easel of sorts to show off the designers work. So how do you say the young man is deranged?

    Are you sure this show wasn’t in Cotonou or Abidjan? This cant be the USA Abeg!
    Besides, the clothes are so downtrodden and Gbenro looks kinda ratchet. Sorry dear, you look better on Tinsel and awful on the runway.

    @sonia if your parents didnt teach you manners then you better learn from others fast…..why would you call him deranged? it seems some people dont know the concept of runway modelling…..its a form of art and each show has a concept, that doesnt mean the models go about their everyday lives in such clothes or it means that their personal style….so pls save the insults and do a brain check before you vomit trash here
