Hey people! How did your week go? Mine was okay, nothing spectacular happened except that I noticed that Gucci made an appearance on the African scene.

By that, I mean that I saw quite a number of celebrities and fashionistas wearing Gucci pieces, although unlike the title says, some were pictured outside Africa. But hey, Africans are Africans regardless of location, right?

First was blogger, Temi Otedola, then Mavin First Lady, Tiwa Savage, followed by Media Personality, Toke Makinwa, Polo Nigeria Underboss, Jennifer Obayuwana, Ghanaian actress, Jackie Appiah, South African Brand and Digital Influencer, Kefilwe Mabote and finally South African Hip hop artiste, Rikhado Makhado aka King Kontini!

The South African rapper attended Paris Men’s Fashion Week in looking rad in Gucci Union Jack Horsebit Leather Loafers and a Gucci Duffle bag.

Jennifer Obayuwana

It almost looks like Gucci pieces cannot be worn one-at-a-time!

Like all the others already mentioned, Jennifer had two Gucci pieces on – the Gucci Lesley Zebra Print/Goat Hair Trimmed Leather Pumps and a hibiscus red Gucci Dionysus Top Handle Leather Bag.
