      5’10 is short? Lol… He ain’t Lebron tall but he’s certainly not Kevin Hart either. 5’10 na average height for men.

    No, no, no, no, no. See me eagerly looking forward to photos I could save down as my new screensaver (thus replacing Oluchi’s fierce pix from the ‘New African Woman’ shoot… sorry for the shift in allegiance, my silsta)…

    Only to see this. Why did they make him look like a cross between an aging fisherman and a lecherous professor? Chinwetel, is that hair for a movie role?? It better be for a movie role… and I know Half of a Yellow Sun is done, so this better not be your new look. I “yam” not pleased with the overall result… but I still, sha, love you (if Ebuka likes, he should tweet about how fame has caused Nigerian women to discover our feelings for you…)

    Extremely heartbroken. Why did they make my man look this. …I got all excited when I saw the Title. These shots don’t do him any justice at all…

      You want them to edit these photos to the extent that he looks like a cartoon character. The images have this raw , edgy & dark thing to them. It’s nice na.

      @Diya I was looking for the words to describe the guy and you saved me. This indeed is masculine raw, edgy and real. Perfect photoshoot. It shows the real man.

    Who is the photographer?????? They did not do justice to the handsome and talented Chiwetel!!!
    Disappointing pictures however the outfits look great on him.

    I think this shoot was to make him look rugged. Hence no touch ups were done. I like the shoot sha…gives men like us hope…. #okbye

    I love the look….fine its not a clean look, but damn, he still looks good. He looks like a “Real Man”, not dolled up with perfect eyebrows and hairline. All the haters need to #swerve
