Fashion is a statement of self and confidence. One’s sartorial taste is almost always a reflection of one’s state of mind. It can also be a projection of one’s class and status to the world. Nigerian celebrities are aware of the latter and have stepped up their wardrobe games to put them a notch above everybody else.


From Tiwa Savage to RMD and Chimamanda, here are the 10 most stylish Nigerian celebrities of 2021:

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie


“CNA”, as she is adorably called by her fans around the globe, has a fashion sense that’s almost as alluring as her writing skills. Her style is simple yet glamorous at the same time. The white blazer and flannel pants she rocked in one of her pictures for the cover of Schick Magazine earlier this year splashed forth the gorgeousness of a woman who has found an unlikely partnership between her cerebral personality and fashion freak in her.

Tiwa Savage

Tiwa Savage


The ‘Somebody’s son’ crooner maintained her position as the number one diva in the Nigeria music scene in 2021, not just with her streaming milestones but fashion statements.

Every clothing item she fits herself in complements her onyx skin and pronounced her gorgeous body sumptuously. She looks breathtaking in everything, from a silky dress with glittering helms and saffron-coloured evening wrap-around.

Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD)


“RMD” is a fashion icon. A quintessential figure of slick, classy, elegant looks attainable for all black men. He looks spiffy in almost all styles he tries on. And as years roll by, it appeared, his handsomeness resisted the corroding nature of age.

Like a fine wine that gets better with age, the good-looking sexagenarian has added more beauty as he gets older.

Nengi Hampson


Nengi is always as unmissable as a golden orb in a room of darkness. Fans of Big Brother Naija are the most obvious witnesses to the entrepreneur’s captivating fashion sense.

She is always an epitome of feminine gorgeousness regardless of the style she opts for.

Whether she’s wrapped in radiant kente cloth or fitted in a racy, lacy bikini, Nengi’s well-sculpted body accentuates the apparel with wholesome gracefulness.

Shaffy Bello


The ageless mother of two is known to steal the show from time to time. Through her consistent elegant style, she has earned the right to be classified as one of the stylish celebrities in Nigeria.

Dashing, classy, and elegant — that’s how best to describe her style over the years.

Her Instagram page is rich with major fashion inspirations, ranging from casual to formal and even traditional attires.

Linda Osifo

Linda Osifo

The actress broke into the limelight in the final quarter of the year when she featured in ‘A Naija Christmas’ and ‘Tanwa Savage.’

However, she’s been a screen darling on Instagram all year round. Whether she’s sauntering in a cream-coloured corset top or posing for photos in an aquiline evening dress richly embellished with sequins, Linda looks ravishing.

Iyabo Ojo

Amid fighting for justice for the underage ward of Princess Comedian who was allegedly molested by Baba Ijesha, Iyabo Ojo still kept her fashion acumen and never turned up for an event with dimness to her resplendence.

Her almost pint-sized body accentuates any clothing item she finds herself in.


“Papi Chulo” doesn’t readily come to mind when fashionistas are being listed in the Nigerian music scene but a keen look at his Instagram page would evaporate all doubts.

The Bayelsa-born dancehall singer shows off his remarkable fashion style by playing on different types of hats, durags, and balaclavas.

Osas Ighodaro

Osas turns heads wherever she goes. The TV hostess-cum-actress is the sublime cocktail of innate beauty mixed with diva fashion acumen. She glitters all the time and she knows she’s golden, that’s why she rocks red carpets with the confidence of a goddess blessing mortals with her presence.

Alex Ekubo

Ekubo has the perfect body structure for clothes. He can successfully switch from hip to suave and to androgynous – and sometimes mix them all up.

His on-point style is, perhaps, a ripple effect of his occasional modelling gigs, which keeps him in touch with changing fads and close to the fashion industry.
