A quick look at Jidenna’s style profile reveals that he is a lover of Afrocentric fashion. He proves this by consistently infusing African fashion in his music videos, red-carpet outfits, photo shoots and daily lifestyle.
The Classic Man is also known for his spiffy sense of style which mostly features; a 3-piece suit, Ankara neck tie and matching pocket square, traditional walking stick and of course, classy dress shoes. Many of his attires and accessories are created by talented tailors from Senegal, Ghana and Nigeria.
In 2015, Jidenna was one of the ambassadors of the All Things Ankara Ball; a formal social event in which the guests attend in luxurious, classy, elegant & couture Ankara Print attire.
For the 59th edition of the Grammy Awards, which held on February 12, 2017, in Los Angeles, Jidenna ditched his 3-piece suits for a traditional kaftan thereby representing his Nigerian roots on the red carpet and totally straying from the norm.
