Nollywood is an industry that has witnessed tremendous growth over the last couple of years and as it grew, the fashion sense of the actors in it has also evolved. In this list, we give a rundown of the most fashionable Nollywood actors in no particular order. Ik Ogbonna
Ik Ogbonna is one of the few celebrities that has been able rock a bald head and still have the ladies drooling over his good looks. Perhaps his romance with modeling can best explain why he is such a style icon but one thing we can’t help but admire about this Nollywood actor is the fact that he knows how to look good in anything he wears. He is stylish enough to get away with colours and any man that can pull off colours is good enough a fashionista if there is one.
That OC Ukeje is a talented Nollywood actor is not up for debates and this can be backed up with the several awards that he has under his belt. The movie star who first came into prominence following his emergence as the winner of Amstel Malta Box Office (AMBO) reality has gone ahead to star in many more award winning movies like “Half Of A Yellow Sun.” It is not just his acting prowess that has however endeared him to our hearts as his unique sense of style is equally admirable or how else can you describe a man who keeps it simple more often than not and still ends up looking fab.
When Uti Nwachukwu won Big Brother Africa reality show back in 2010, little did we know that we were welcoming such a versatile talent back into Nigeria. A model, TV presenter, actor and events MC, Uti has walked dozens of red carpets, runways and entertained us on TV and while doing all of this, we have fallen in love with his sense of style. It is safe to say that Uti is not only a stylish actor but one of Nigeria’s best dressed celebrities.
Just like Uti Nwachukwu and Ik Ogbonna, Alex Ekubbo is another Nollywood actor that has a romance with modeling and this easily explains why his fashion sense has left us trying to keep up over the years. Alexx emerged first runner up at the 2010 Mr Nigeria contest and has since been appearing in movies and going on to win the Best Actor in a Supporting Role award at the 2013 Best of Nollywood Awards for his role in the Weekend Getaway. Let the pictures speak for him.
29 year old Bryan Okwara is a Nigerian actor whose biggest claim to fame is holding the title of Mr. Nigeria in 2007 as well as reaching the semi-finals in the Mister World 2007 contest. The basketball loving actor is known for his trademark hairstyles and his well built body allows him to look effortlessly good in almost anything and we are not exaggerating when we say anything.
Tinsel star Gideon Okeke is not an actor we can look over when it comes to the style department. With a receding hairline which he wears like a gold crown and a charming smile that gives him boyish good looks, Gideon Okeke knows how to keep it stylish be it that he is looking casual or formal. A big thumb up for the “A Place in the Stars” actor as we have been able to learn a thing or two from his wardrobe.
Nollywood’s favourite bad boy Jim Iyke has not only dazzled us all with his acting skills but has also captured the hearts of many with his daring fashion sense. Who else is bold enough to rock a white suit with shorts on the red carpet? A look international star Pharrell Williams later rocked as well. Fashion is about pushing boundaries and Jim Iyke lives on the edge and is unapologetic about his fashion which makes us wonder what look he will be debuting next.
Nollywood actor and father of one Mike Ezuronye does not need to put in much efforts to look good and maybe that is why it is always so easy to see him looking fashionably and impeccably dressed. With a body and face like his, it would be a crime not to be fashion conscious and that is why he makes the cut for our most stylish Nollywood actors.
Gbenro Ajibade caused quite a buzz when he shaved off his ten year old dreads when his marriage to fellow Tinsel star Osas Ighodaro was coming up. But then shaving off the dreads didn’t affect his fashion sense one bit as he has not stopped mercerizing his female fans with his good looks and great taste when it comes to grooming.
Nollywood actor turned politician Desmond Elliot rounds off our list most stylish Nollywood actors. The 41 year old award winning actor keeps it simple and stylish in most of his outfits and he has been around long enough for us to know that we can totally depend on him when it comes to fashion.
