Fashion fades, style is eternal and Afrocentric is forever. Yesss! We cannot pretend we haven’t seen these music videos with their on point Afrocentric styling.
It’s quite exciting to see this new shift in fashion styling; it gives some fresh appeal and edge to the video.
Stylists are beginning to understand the essence of aside staying trendy, bringing a bit of Africa into their styling projects and this is one of the many ways of projecting Africa to the world.
Although the debate on whether African Prints are indeed made in Africa or not still exists? We think it shouldn’t deter us from rocking them anyway. So If you haven’t considered having an African print / Ankara Inspired outfit then you’re late to this party.
Go make one for yourself and join us, better late than never people.
Here are 5 smashing Afrocentric music videos we are loving and hope you do too. What are your thoughts on this new trend?
