Hours before the #BBNaija Live Show, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu took to his Twitter to share a sneak peek of the outfit he would be wearing to the show. As usual, this tease got fans talking, and this is because Obi-Uchendu has, overtime, installed himself as a trendsetter, the one everyone looks out for at every red carpet event, every ceremony.
He steals the thunder even from grooms on their wedding day, and he had killed various looks to the #BBNaija live show every other week. And so, when he shared this sneak peek, folks waited to be entertained again.
But it was different this time.
The show host wore a house jacket by Mai Atafo–an outfit that fashionably tethers between a formal double-breasted suit and a house robe. It is not a proper suit, and it is not a proper robe; the fusion messed with folks’ head, even though Obi-Uchendu looked dapper and relaxed in it.
Folks took a look of time mulling over this one, wondering what to make of the look. Some gave it a thumbs down, and others termed it daring, but whatever be the case, the topic trended all night.
“Is it a dress or a suit?” asked one confused Twitter user. Another added, “With what Ebuka is wearing tonight, he’s not sure if he wants to sleep or go for an interview.”
See the reactions below.
