For years he runs his successful line without even operating on social media only until 2018. He built himself a large following, that anytime he released a look it will sell out on pre-orders before the numbers were created. Late last year during Accra Fashion Week Summer Harmattan 2018, the designer took to Accra Fashion Week to release a collection of variations for men, included were some skirts. Much to the point, it seems as just a few items the designer had included as seen below.

Watch the video below. When we asked what was the motive behind his skirt revolution, he replied “Men of Power have worn skirts for a long time, even if you study the Egyptian pharaohs. Also if you look at most of the Muslim culture, the kaftans menswear to the Akans who were wraps. In fact, men not wearing skirts is something that was introduced to us by the west. Let’s embrace our freedom” When asked about how the homophobic end of Africa will react to it he replied “If you are a man you are a man! People know when a gay man wears a skirt and when a man wears a skirt”. The designer also acknowledged all the skirt pieces produced after his Accra Fashion Week show have been sold out and his company is in the process of producing more.
