It was an amazing fuse of music and fashion like never before at the second edition of MUSIC MEETS RUNWAY (MMR), which took place on the 24th of December 2012, at the Convention Centre, Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos. This year’s MMR was more outstanding and hosted by the beautiful Supermodel Millen Migese (Former Miss Tanzania now signed to Ford Models New York) who has been the face of all the MMR campaign images, and “The Entertainer” – D’banj.
Fashion and music lovers were entertained by a selection of the biggest Nigerian artists around; D’banj, Wizkid, Iyanya, Naeto C, May D, K Switch, Burna Boy, Ajebutter 22, Taikoon And Efya From Ghana who all gave performances of a lifetime with fabulous models strutting to collections of nine of Nigeria’s brightest new talents; Andrea Iyamah, April by Kunbi, David Bowler, Eclectic by Sasha, Elegante by, TiannahStyling, Kimono Kollection, MOOFA, Nkili, Shakara Couture, Rebahia and a special collection by headlining fashion icon Lanre Dasilva Ajayi.
Another highlight of the night was the MMR new model competition where model new face Nkem Okorafor was announced the winner. She will go on to become the Model Face of MMR for the next one year and will also participate in a Major International Fashion Week come 2013.
Wizkid (pictured above) wins my best dressed award for his performance outfit. He performed twice to April by Kunbi and Rebahia label as their models walked the runway. It’s good to see that he takes his looks as seriously as his music. Iyanya, Burna Boy, K Switch, May D also looked good too. D Banj looked good when he performed alongside Naeto C – who gets the worst dressed award- but looked average when he performed to headlining designer LDA.
