This year’s Met Gala has come and gone but we won’t be forgetting the iconic looks in a while. This year, the ball’s theme centered on Fashion and Catholicism and your faves served LEWKS!
The Met Gala is an annual fundraising ball coordinated as a contribution toward the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. As usual, Rihanna killed this year’s theme with her blinged’up bishop costume -but that’s not why we’re here.
In the midst of the celebrity fanfare, we spotted a Nigerian man wearing an agbada on the red carpet! Although he could have least made an effort to stay on trend, he definitely stood out.
Upon seeing this man, Nigerians on social media couldn’t stop asking about him:
That’s great but I just want to know who the guy in the agbada is ??♀️ https://t.co/Fy1R6Oe1Ug

Anyway, we found him on Instagram, @musicisterry, and he’s a writer, producer and music correspondent. Looks like he decided to represent his culture on the red carpet and we’re not too mad at it. Next time, give them white agbada okay, Terry?
