Earlier on today, the presidency had to issue a disclaimer that they didn’t invite Naomi Campbell to NIgeria after the supermodel sent out a tweet thanking the Presidency for inviting her to Nigeria.
Noami had tweeted:
Was a pleasure to be invited by His Excellency The President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari to the private launch of Eko Atlantic.
Minutes later, President Buhari’s media aide, Bashir Ahmad issued a disclaimer that Naomi Campbell only met President Buhari when he was touring the Eko Atlantic project, and requested to take photos with him.
Bashir’s tweet read;
For the sake of clarity, President @MBuhari didn’t invite Ms. Naomi Campbell to any event during his 2-day visit to Lagos State. They only met at the Eko Atlantic City while Mr. President was touring the project, and she requested to take photos with him.
11 years ago, Africa’s fashion industry became truly global with the birth of ARISE, the synonym for “Africa Rising“. ARISE Fashion Week helped to put Nigeria firmly on the global fashion map, showcasing and promoting African designers on the runways of the world, from London’s famous Royal Albert Hall, to Washington DC’s Kennedy Center, to the legendary triple appearance during New York’s iconic Fashion Week, to Lagos, to Johannesburg, to Cape Town and Paris.
ARISE Fashion Week (AFW 2018) is back this week from March 30th to April 2nd at the Lagos Continental Hotel (formerly known as Intercontinental Hotel).
The AFW runway has seen global fashion icons and leading models such as Naomi Campbell, Alek Wek, Liya Kebede, Oluchi Orlandi, Grace Bol, Georgie Badiel, Millen Magese, showcase the best of Africa.
