Hey Hey Fashionistas & Fashionistos!
Written by: Tasha Henderson
I am baccccccccckkkkkkkkkkk!!!!
I know you missed me and my interesting outlook on Fashion and Style. I will blog more about Men’s Fashion & Style this year, Scout’s honor. Today is Valentine’s Day and every year on V-Day I try to have a Men’s Fashion Blog or submission published. On this Valentine’s Day Blog, I will discuss “Versatility” in Style, because being versatile is so important for many reasons.
“Versatility in Style” can be beneficial for several reasons such as:
Versatility in style tells a more detailed story with your looks.
Versatility in style stretches your wardrobe so you can have more options of looks.
Versatility in style allows others to see different sides of your personality.
Versatility in style assures that you can be ready for any occasion (no limit).
My muse of choice is a very dope media professional, who hails from Nigeria, by the name of IY, who is heavily known for his wondrous works as the hype man/host for DJ Cuppy (one of the biggest Afrobeats Djs in the world), Radio Host at Happenings Radio of the TGIF Show and more. IY’s background includes NTA Ekiti, UPSS and CANP World aired on ITV Benin, ITV Abuja, NTA Benin, UPSS FM Infinity where he has hosted shows, interviews and anchored Entertainment Programs. As a master of ceremony, compere and hype man he has strategized and hosted events for delectable brands that include government agencies, corporate organizations, pageants, modeling campaigns and entertainment & music events. Alongside being the official hype man to Dj Cuppy, IY has been inclusive of the Pepsi Lituation 2018, DJ Cuppy Easter Cactus on the Roof 2018, Ecobank Express City Giveback, Continental Basketball League, Union Bank 100 Year Party and many more. I was able to catch up with him and walk with him through his “Story of Style”. IY taught me how important “Style” was in his field and inspired me to write this dope blog on Men’s Style.
Meet Osakue Iyobosa aka “IY”
TASHA: Hey IY, can you tell me more about your career and what it entails?
IY: Yes sure, I am a Event & Radio Host ,Hype Man, and TV Host, and I am responsible for coordinating events, bringing wittiness to help the audience enjoy the show or the event.
TASHA: How important is Fashion/Style in your field of business?
IY: I have two quotes that I love and they are “Looking GOOD is GOOD Business” and “Dress the Way You Want to be Addressed”. Fashion and Style are so important as a host and I sometimes coordinate months in advance about what I will wear for certain events. I am very detailed with my style. It depends on the type of event, because the event can influence my inspiration of style.
TASHA: What is your favorite color(s) and why?
IY: Red and Black are my favorite colors, Red is an energy color and as a hype man & host I am suppose to be the main source of energy. The color Black is that one color that can go with everything, black is so diverse.
TASHA: Who is your favorite designer or brand?
IY: Honestly, I have no particular favorite brand or designer, because I just wear what looks cool on me. I am huge on supporting local designers in Nigeria. I am the type of person that I can put on an expensive brand and mix with an upcoming designer brand.
TASHA: What is your “Go-To” Style?
IY: I love being comfortable & gentle class, you can wear casual clothes and still stand out, so I would say my go-to style is sneakers, jeans, t-shirt, and cap. If I had my way, I would dress in suits all the times, because it’s gentle & sticks out.
TASHA: Last question IY, where do you see yourself in 5 years?
IY: I will be one of the biggest hype men/Host in Africa, not just Nigeria.
What I totally admire from IY is how he can literally wear any style and make it his own. Throughout this blog you will see him in so many styles. He has no stylist, this is pure God-given talent. I love the way he pays attention to details with accessorizing as well and he is not afraid of color, he wears tones that advance his style even more. Take a look at more of IY’s personal style and how he rocks the mic at his events, LIVE and in STYLE!
