Looks like fun times were had by all! On the fashion front, Bola of Ariya Entertainment was the best dressed male (taking a risk with that pink bowtie and all those pinstripes really paid off). As for the females, although Agbani Darego's dress was fabulous (that color was h-o-t), Oluchi takes the cake for head to toe fabulousness. Lola Ogunnaike's hair was on point—that's definitely the look to rock for the summer (long weaves are overdone). Too bad there weren't as many artists representing Nigerian inspired designs.
