Since breaking into the music industry over four years ago, music star Phyno has shown no signs of slowing down. As one of Nigeria’s finest indigenous rap act, the rapper who is officially known as Azubuike Chibuzo Nelson, has already won 5 awards with 28 nominations and a highly coveted endorsement with Guinness. Dubbed the rap king of the East, Phyno continues to rule the charts as he drops hit after hit composed in his native Igbo language.
As a conscious artist, the rapper who turned 30 years a few days ago, on October 9th, understands the importance of matching his dress sense to his music and the power this holds when it comes to building an overall marketable and convincing brand. His style is a casual mix of funky meets rapper with rock star attributes to blend. He achieves this by rotating a mix of leather jackets, fitted tops, military-styled boots, chains, hats, skinny pants and a pop of colour every now and then. His signature look is an eccentric Mohawk which commands attention and announces his presence wherever he goes.
With a style game this dope and a music talent to match, it’s safe to say the Enugu-born star has come to stay!
Here are 13 times he totally slayed the fashion game…
When he nailed a Bart Simpson sweater
When he wore black from head to toe and looked this good!
When he reminded us that he’s a true son of the soil
When he totally won the check game
When he made black and white look so edgy
When he effortlessly slayed from head to toe
When he outdid doves at their style game
When he showed other dudes how to rock a pop of colour
When he dressed like the true boss he is

When he looked good by simply standing still
When he paired a face cap with a vintage-styled shirt
