Adesola Ade-Unuigbe



Temi DollfaceTemi Dollface is known for her unique style and personal touch to all her outfits.

The music star shared two recent looks where she had to use traditional headtie (gele) and she added her personal touch to prevent her ears from being squashed.

She captioned ‘The only way to wear Gele, in my reckoning. Your ears don’t become kilinshi’

We can definitely see this catching on.

    Yes yes yes!!!!!!! I love this woman, yes!!! Espeixly to that second picture. The material is giving me all kinds of vintage themes. And guess what popped in my head, that slave photoshoot by Eku (darn white-privileged and obtuse person). Thank you Temi, thank you darling.

    And BN, I shall await your coverage of Rachel Dolezal
