The movie premiered in Lagos last Sunday and is expected to officially hit the cinemas on Friday.
But Lawani stunned many at the movie’s premiere with her controversial nun-inspired outfit.
In several photos shared on her Instagram page, the entrepreneur could be seen clad in an all-white attire with a sign of the cross inscribed on it.
Her dress was similar to that worn by a nun — a woman devoted to religious life and living under a convent.
The stylist, however, was partly unclad as her thighs could be visibly seen while she also accompanied the photos with religious-inclined captions wherein she subtly aimed several digs at her critics.
“Holy holy Why are you wailing, Pls you can now cry in peace. I live by my rules because I have built a world for myself and I am ruling it. If it’s not Tiannah? It can never be Tinnah,” she wrote in one of the posts.
The fashionista’s dress has since sparked outrage on Twitter, with many accusing her of insulting Christianity.
“Toyin Lawani as a fashionista, can go beyond boarders with her line of business but she should also remember that there is breaking point in whatever we do in this life. That was a cross in boundary because that was a slap on Christendom,” a user wrote.
“What is Toyin Lawani trying to prove with this Catholic Nun outfit? Without mincing words, this is so disrespecful and demeaning Madness everywhere,” another user wrote.
The development comes weeks after the stylist shared photos of herself completely unclad with her body designed with flowery tattoos to celebrate her 39th birthday.
Here’s what others had to say:
Only Christians can disrespect there own Religion like this, not a single Muslim will ever wear the hijab and take raunchy pictures. This one is busy disrespecting the cross with impunity. Both the designer and the model are stupid. Toyin Lawani no get sense pic.twitter.com/MdKJyqJ8d7

#Toyin Lawani should be charged to #shariah court for insulting and blasphemy against the #Christian faith, since she is a practicing #Muslim. If a Christian girl Should try this with #Islam her would have gone off by now. pic.twitter.com/97Dql79Txr

This is not Toyin Lawani’s first time of disrespecting religion, she did same with Hijab for a fragrance brand some years ago too. I think we all agreed she’s a fashion goddess😂

Toyin Lawani abusing the Catholic Nun Outfit. She may be striving to be noticed by clearly disrespecting the Christian faith but truth is she dare not try this nonsense with the other faith..the consequences. As Christians we tend to look away when our faith is ridiculed, shame! pic.twitter.com/YpyqNJAKJy

One Thing I Really Admire About Islam Is The Fact That They'll Never Allow Anyone (Christian or Muslim) Disrespect Their Religion.
Some Christians Endorse Blasphemy.
Show of shame by Toyin Lawani.
Total Disrespect for the Church, Christianity & The Cross. pic.twitter.com/BTJI69bU5U
