Fela's Shrine Faithfuls Transformed Into Models For Gq Style


American luxury magazine covering fashion, art, culture, design, work travel and beyond came to Nigeria - Fela Anikulapo Kuti's shrine to capture the culture, style and art within it.

GQ style team paid homage to the new Afrika shrine by taking style photographs with the faithfuls in the shrine and immediately turning them into models. 


The mix of Ankara, bathroom slippers/flipflop and luxury designer wears brought to life the rich culture, art and style of each individual. Gq style fashion director - Mobolaji Dewodu had this to say; “The Shrine is a refuge for the youth in Lagos—it’s a place where you can come and be free, maybe get a job, have a community—and these are some of the young cats we met there. We cast and dressed everybody on the spot with traditional Nigerian clothes and then these designer coats. I just looked for interesting characters. There was something about each of them that struck me; I think it comes across in the photos. It’s a vibe. You feel it. If someone has style, you don’t have to do too much. You put a tailored garment on them and they just own it.”
