Looks like the talk on Ebuka’s Agbada which literally stole the show at Banky W and Adesua Etomi’s Traditional Wedding Ceremony, isn’t gonna come to an end anytime soon!…
The unique Agbada Outfit by Ugo Monye, from his Reale Spring/Summer 2018 Collection is probably one of the most talked about on social media for the past week now.
Thing is if you were a guest at the wedding, and for one reason or the other, you have no idea who the Bride or the Groom is, you’d feel the Groom was EBUKA.
His Agbada was something Else… If you missed it, Here’s a peep at his Billion Dollar Agbada…
Folks on Social Media drooled over his outfit, as he basically stole the show at the wedding.
Now, Nollywood actor Femi Branch has taken to social media to call out Ebuka Uchendu and his tailor/fashion designer Ugo Monye over the outfit.
According to the actor who shared the photo above on his Instagram page, the outfit is not an Agbada but a Kimono.
“THIS IS NOT AN AGBADA!
Abeg o make una no vex o, as much as I am in love with this epic design that is obviously trending right now, as a Yoruba man, one of the few tribes to whom the Agbada traditionaly belongs, I want to ask…. Is this really an Agbada?! A Buba is different from a Dansiki which is also different from a dandogo or an olentelafa (long sleeved tunic that reaches the ankles) but they are all tops. From what I know, an Agbada is never open in front. It can be any design, length or pattern but it’s never cut all the way open in front! This is more of a Kimono not an Agbada. Of a truth, the Agbada has metamorphosed grandly over the years but always kept it’s basic design which has come to become it’s sole identity. WHAT WE SEE HERE IS NOT AN AGBADA! So plz @ugomonye.official what do we call this epic masterpiece of yours cos now we are all confused o!”
