Yemi Alade & Toyin AimahkuLately, more and more Nigerian women have been wearing male traditional styles – check out our weekly wedding guest column #AsoEbiBella and you’ll see what we mean!

We spotted actress Toyin Aimakhu and singer Yemi Alade rocking the trend yesterday.

Toyin wore a black ensemble to the AMVCA nominee brunch, while Yemi was spotted in red, which she accessorized with a black watch and gold – sandals and a long chain. She captioned her Instagram photo, “#guess #zara #amarelis #bland2glam”.

    Not loving the trend one bit… dear ladies, please can we not stray from our own feminine/girly clothing?!!?
    Just imagine if men decided to start wearing peplum shirts/tops…that’s how I see this trend…

    Yes o! Let women wear women’s clothes and men where their own clothes. It is an abomination to cross dress 🙂

    LOL Toyin looks all sorts of no in that outfit like she borrowed it from her oga abi ‘small god’. Not working mami sorry
    Yemi Alade killed it!
    That said, this trend needs to die asap. And not because its menswear inspired (cause there’s nothing wrong with that), but because Nigerians abuse everything and will certainly overdo.
    It will just turn to pure water like how that star wrapper was that time,

    Some of y’all are myopic. If you don’t like the trend, that’s completely understandable. But to go as far as saying that there could be gender issues is ludicrous and farfetched. Ever heard of the word, male inspired? That’s what this trend is. Few years ago, a woman in pants was abominable, because it was thought that pants/jeans/trousers was for men. We all wear pants now, and I for one have no desire to be any gender other than female. This is a trend, and it too shall pass. So chill!
