Tinie Tempah performing at AMFW

The closing day of Arise Magazine Fashion Week featured an awards night with a fashion show and two exciting acts, Nigeria’s Mo Cheddah and Britain’s Tinie Tempah, performing in Nigeria for the first time. Tinie ripped up the place with renditions of several of his hits including “Written in the Stars” and “Invincible,” then closed out with his Brit Award-winning smash “Pass Out”. Tinie expressed his joy at coming home to his native Nigeria for the first time in several years, and produced a rousing performance that saw virtually the whole crowd on their feet. South Africans Kluk CGDT won designer of the year, and Tanzanian model Cjika was model of the year. Veteran Nigerian designer Deola Sagoe won the first Lifetime Achievement award. Among the award presenters was Nigerian business mogul Alhaji Aliko Dangote, ranked as the

richest person of African descent in the world, topping Oprah Winfrey and Mohammed Al Amoudi with an estimated net worth of almost $14 billion. By all accounts, the entire fashion week turned out to be a huge success. Afrofusion arrived there after Sierra Leone’s Madam Wokie debuted her collection, but a gracious photographer named George from Complete Fashion Magazine granted us use of his own photos. You can find those, and other photos from the final day, below and in our Photo Gallery. Bless…
