Afro-warriors at The Woman King Premiere
The Hollywood historical drama The Woman King premiered at the Filmhouse Cinemas IMAX in Lagos last Sunday. Given an ‘Afro-warrior’ theme for the night, guests stormed the green carpet
in outlandish costumes.
One particular look that caught the eye was Nollywood actress and reality TV star, Iyabo Ojo, who stole the show on the green carpet in a daring costume designed by prominent fashion designer Toyin Lawani.
Other guests such as media personalities, Uti Nwachukwu and Daala Oruwari, amongst others, also graced the spotlight before the man of the hour, Jimmy Odukoya—who starred as Oba Ade in the movie—made his way to the green carpet in a befitting royal fashion.
Here are some of the best costumes of the night.
