FWST : FRESHWALLSTREET GOES TO NIGERIA FOR MMR

“Dearly beloved, we have all gathered here to go though this thing called life”..so I plan to go through mine with a little pocket space for empty memories. I was more than willing to jump on a plane to nigeria when I heard the first ever music meets the runway which was rumored to be hosted by amber rose ( don’t hold your tongue she didn’t make it ) was about to be held in EKO hotel , lagos. Apart from just wanting to be part of something this eventful  for the first time,  I have always been curious about the land of the eagles…I love traveling, meeting new people and getting in tune with other cultures  , so second guessing was out of the question when the chance finally came .

I don’t think anyone enjoys packing like the way I do…I unpack and pack with a playlist (epic “I know I’m crazy” moment) . So I made sure I packed everything I need, everything I might and what you’ll never know if I’ll need , that equals heavy luggage . I opted for an iamisigo charlatan t-shirt , my favorite hnm denim ( D.I.Y distressing)and my favorite espadrilles…don’t know about you but I always keep it comfy when I travel especially with all the hustle of traveling

I Got  to Nigeria late morning. The cab ride to the hotel was hilarious courtesy of the driver…everybody seemed to be in a jolly mood or not..no grey area.

  since my assistant didn’t make it  i appointed my vintage leather  rucksack to be my side kick…it more than stood up to the test….. I checked into Radison Blu hotel and drew the blue print   for the biggest   power nap before the crew came calling..that was supposed to be the plan ; the feeling of being was awesome I couldn’t even sit still..I loved my room and the view from the hotel? Amazing! Yeah I stood outside and stared at the city for time..very therapeutic, got a lot of thoughts in .  touchdown nigeria! …… ♠ #nowplaying Rick ross ζ this is the life it didn’t take time for my flygerian crew to swoop in . i got scooped up by none other than  one of lagos’  new girl on the block  designer , Wana Sambo (#ff @thewanasambo) to the eko hotel  venue where the rehearsals for the first ever MMR( music meets the runway) in Nigeria was being held .

The energy backstage was sooo crazy ! I gotta commend the thirst for perfection on this land.. First captain of the jet set crew! Captain femi . Femi has been a fan of the blog since its early days on facebook and I must say I was more than grateful to run into this crazy lad. The love in this country is crazy….

The ever amazing Wana Sambo (@theWanaSambo)

ME , FEMI AROGZ , TERRENCE SAMBO of ONENIGERIANBOY.COM

BUBU , CEO AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF THE STREETWEAR LABEL THE CHARLATANS AND THE BRAIN BEHIND THE IAMISIGO FASHION HOUSE . BUBU BLESSED THE EVENT BY STYLING FOR GREY FASHION HOUSE

We finally hit backstage ( needed a close up look at the models..). It felt good to be in a common geographical location with people who appreciate the essence of art through style . Met a few more crazy people who I’m gonna thank the lord for in ma next prayer session    I CAUGHT TERENCE BACKSTAGE EATING AN ELBOW IN HIS B-BOY STANCE..LOL  FINALLY CAME BACK TO THE HOTEL TO CATCH SOME Zzzz BEFORE WE HEADED OUT AGAIN…I TOLD YOU I DON’T GO ANYWHERE WITHOUT THESE BABIES. I RECENTLY THRIFTED THIS ELLE HOMME CLUTCH , IT WAS PERFECT FOR MY JOURNEY…EVEN MY SUNGLASSES HAD A COMPARTMENT  AND THE PERFECT THING IS THE LOCK SYSTEM ON IT STILL WORKS…#DENCH

Room service! We are serving big guns today, and a hand grenade for dessert . I have been dying to show you guys the first sample  piece from my soon to come shirt label that I’m working on. I was earlier going to call it cushion addict but somehow  “the gentleman’s needle” crept through the corridors of my mind..still havnt decided yet but I was phsyched about it. The shirt has a  button detail on its collar which took  days to perfect..I wanted the shirt to stand out with a subtle but catchy detail and the button detail idea just seemed  worked perfectly . I was contemplating about putting a little color into my ensemble but decided to keep it dark and elegant . I’m glad to announce that new “never leave home without it” item are my heel the world empowerment beads…kindly cue “racks on racks ” here. I stacked up two more beads…arrest me ! I am abusing my wrist! .

 (Photo courtesy of bellanaija.com) Since I broke my camera I couldn’t take enough pictures so I stuck my femi and the sky vodka bottle..nice friends..woke up with a u-haul truck on my head .  So after an amazing night my enemies were up to it again..the breakfast sucked!..Radison Blu needs to switch up their cook quick fast in a hurry

 Battle of the drilles! 

   NIGERIA THANK YOU FOR HAVING THE KID ..HANG TIGHT TO EVERYONE I MET..I AM DEFINITELY COMING BACK!
