I’m really excited about this month’s issue of WOW! magazine. Why? Because my very first editorial is in it! I decided to call it “CONTROL” for a number of reasons; I was inspired by menswear for this shoot and I’m really pleased with the results! Toyosi shot this editorial and I’m way too excited to share this, as this was also her first editorial. (The black and white idea worked!)

Here’s a bit about the this months issue from the editor:

This edition is packed with a bumper harvest of over 160 pages of exciting fashion, featuring prominent designers from within Nigeria and all over the world.

On the cover, we feature two icons in the celebrity fashion scene. Munachi Abii is the true representation of the ultimate fashion icon. A former beauty queen and now a rapper, Muna exudes confidence and charisma like no other. On the flip side of the coin is Veronica Odeka of Vane Style, who is easily the biggest name in the fashion consulting business. With ten years of modelling and celebrities like Alicia Keys and Carmen Electra under her belt, nobody does it like Veronica.
