#BAAD2017: TwitterNG can’t seem to get enough of Ebuka



#BAAD2017: TwitterNG can't seem to get enough of Ebuka - BellaNaija

Stupid question, but did you see Ebuka Obi-Uchendu‘s Agbada yesterday at Banky W and Adesua Etomi‘s traditional wedding?

He was everywhere on social media, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, everywhere!

Off Ugo Monye‘s collection debuted at the Heineken Lagos Fashion Week 2017, the agbada was, well, unconventional, but at the same time so damn fine.

And, of course, being who he is, he made the agbada seem like he came out the womb wearing it.

And everyone seems to agree, which is rare, very rare, very very rare, very very very rare on TwitterNG streets. See the reactions Ebuka and his agbada got on Twitter:

    Lol… that was the exact reaction i felt when i saw it on instagram. I just said this should be Banky wearing this not Ebuka. He is a very stylish Man, no doubt1 When God wants to prosper a Man he puts him on a pedestal for everyone to see. The designer just got a CV boost. Just like Tara said, that it was RMD’s wedding that put her on a world stage when it was covered by Ovation Magazine; everyone kept asking who the makeup lady was and from that moment her business blossomed and still is blossoming. May God send us helpers that will catapult us to places we never dreamt of going to.

    Forget best dressed male or female. Ebuka killed it! The best dressed full stop.

    Fantastic outfit but in such poor, poor taste to wear this to a close friend’s (heck, ANYONE’S!) wedding. Could’ve worn it anywhere else (my guy has a social calendar to rival all social calendars — an award/generic high profile event, maybe?) but chose instead to leverage on his friend’s event/hashtag to help it gain even more traction. While he already shut down the Internet with pictures of the front, my guy decided to show us the back as well! LOL. Bruh…ISSUES. There are ways to look good without taking the shine off the celebrant. This is the kind of friend that makes some folks pick styles for their aso-ebi crew, LOL. And it was embellished with stones on top! Nonsense. Again, FANTASTIC outfit but completely inappropriate.

      What if his intention was to look just his best out of real joy that one of his best is getting married?
      everything is not too serious pls. everything is not a competition. This look did best for Ugo Monye. Ebuka didn’t ask Banks not to use Ugo Monye.

      Everyone knows Ebuka is one stylish man, from his suits to his casuals. Somone else can wear that agbada and wont shine still

      he didn’t steal anyone’s shine. let every other agbada bown down!

      Na wao. You sound so bitter! why naaaa. Who betrayed you recently. Do not allow them destroy your spirit o. This your feedback is too bitter please.

      How could he have even known he was going to shine so much. he probalby saw the photo somewhere and decided to sew the style because he like it and believed it will look very good on him even if it means he will shine (just like we all do).

      He jejely walked into the event and every where went agog for him. Should he have rushed home to change? should he have refused to smile for the pictures? should he have said no stop it, Banky is in the hall and he is not wearing my type of agbada so I dont want to take his shine? what exactly would you have wanted him to do if you were his friend or the groom.

      My friend no nobody took Banky’s shine by the way. We are all still drolling over banky regardless of ebuka’s outfit but truth be told ebuka killed it and its ok.
      there enough space for all birds to fly in the sky.

      Ahn ahn… I’m not sure he thought it was THAT nice now!! haba! It’s not like he went and made a huge GROOM-STYLE agbada! It’s just something from a designer that is very stylish.

      p.s. I love all the jokes and banter! Nigerians can go in on somebody. What I strongly join in warning people against is trying to prematurely copy this style with their Christmas clothe… hmm! it will be bloodbathe on many a tailors’ Lobster Close.

      Bla bla bla bla, say all you want.
      If my friends come to my wedding dressed to kill and one up me, it only means they considered it special and worthy of been slayed at.
      Anyone coming to my wedding should slay however with whatever they want, fine by me.
      Now that Ebuka has raised his own pedestal to the heavens, he better not disappoint cos the internet won’t forgive him.
      In my head, Ebuka =slayatude
      Eg: Rita Dominic ebukaised that dress

      Kay, your IQ (Insecurity Quotient) is through the roof! Brah…..pls stop it…it aint cute.

      My Fave tweet was the one bout Ebuka and Beyoncé!!! hahahahahahahahaaaaaa…He’s always a risk taker with menswear….and this one clearly paid of whatever he spent on it….he should go and pay Ugo some extra!

      Nah. I want to bet you that he didn’t think it was that much of a slay until twitter went nuts. People who are used to looking good and putting extra thoughts into their appearances tend to overslay without even trying. Ever seen someone hay was silk pajamas to a party and still slayed to the gods? My aunt was like that back in the 80s. She always appears overdressed even in her white tee, Levi’s jeans and killer stilletos

      Abeg abeg abeg…. It is not just the Agbada oh… It is Ebuka’s body in the Agbada… It looks like he was wearing it when he came out of his mother’s womb. After all @karowenu wore that same Agbada weeks ago and not one soul batted an eyelid, you can go to his IG page and then tell me if it looks half as good on him, it looked like any other Agbada. BN showcased the collection that this Agbada came from in an article some weeks ago and people did not drool like this. Ebuka most probably wore it as every other person wore theirs but his Chi refused to be like any other person’s
      No vex for Ebuka abeg… Obu chi ya nyere ya, It is his God that gave him.
      By the way Cynthia, is this the kind of soup you’re enjoying at home? Na wa o ? *fans self*

    MHH People na waooo. on my wedding day dress gorgeous and come any how u want to gorgeously slay. i would rather love a cute picture when my album is out than a Razz one. EBUKA KEEP SLAYING U VE THE BODY. even if u wore a simple agbada the body will do justice to it. afterall he slayed more than the model.

    From the moment i set my eyes on Ebukas picture yesterday.. I wondered how a tailor could be so creative. God has really blessed man with so much intelligence! The guy must have a PhD in Agbadology. Superb!!!!!

    I vexed that he came and stole the shine from handsome banky’s day…
    My colleague says I should let him be great. Me I am still beefing. If Ebuka was my friend, I would pick out what he should wear or tell him to send the love and come and visit us a month after…
    Don’t mind him missing the wedding.
