African men are incredibly stylish! If you don’t believe us just check out our Most Stylish African Men of the Week every week from now till December. This week sees Nas opting for a gold suit for his red carpet look at the grammy’s in February, Oswald Boateng looking hot in a teal coloured suit and Alex Ekubo looking ravishing in a purple Tayo Gabriel suit at the 2013 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards. Like Drake once said “You want a suit that’s the business-not a business suit” and for this week, our 3 best-dressed men are the business.


Note how Nas dresses up in this gold Brioni suit for the 2013 Grammy’s with a bow tie and a classy gold chain piece added at the pocket.

Oswald Boateng

As 1 of Africa’s hottest fashion designers, Oswald Boateng never fails to look good. Here is a perfect example of how bright colours look amazing on dark-skinned men. This is one look where the shirt and tie need to rise to the occasion. Perfect fit on the blazer!

Alex Ekubo Just because it’s called a black tie event doesn’t mean it has to be black. Just take a look at Alex’s purple double breasted suit jacket at the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards 2013. Alex looks extra sharp in this Tayo Gabriel blazer.
