Actor Sam Adegoke Is Amplifying His Nigerian Heritage Through His Style


Well into its fourth season, CW drama show “Dynasty”  has been serving us talents, sass and great style for a number of years now. One of such talents is Lagos-born and US-raised actor Sam Oluwaseyi Adegoke—the actor known for his savvy style on the show.

Besides Dynasty, the 38-year-old has also appeared in NCIS, Searching for Neverland, Switched at Birth, Code black, Murder in the First, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and a number of other shows.

Sam Adegoke never shies away from letting the world know of his roots through his on-screen and off-screen fashion choices. Playing the role of tech billionaire Jeff Colby on Dynasty, he dresses the part in colorful suits, coats and shoes—a style that seems to reflect his real-life personality. Adegoke consistently pays homage to the richness of his heritage by infusing elements of traditional Nigerian fashion to his looks.

In Hollywood, strides are being made towards broadening the scope of cultural representation on the silver screen as it is important for viewers to have characters who look like them and share in their unique experiences—yet it’s still an uphill climb. Black and African actors like the 6 feet 2 inches tall Adegoke are doing their part to reflect their ethnicity on the big screen and help improve cultural representation.

This fast-rising star is well-worth keeping an eye on. Just like the character he plays on TV, Sam Adegoke’s Nigerian heritage is highlighted through his contemporary and eclectic style. Like the character Jeff Colby, he switches between Ankara suits, colorful blazers, and vibrant prints, all worn with a contemporary take on classic ensembles and are worn in the most fashionable ways.

Take a look at Sam Adegoke’s magnetic style…
