Wizkid’s recent looks have certainly been eye-catching. From the Air Nitrox beer diver’s diet vintage shirt Besides,I will do this minimalist Japanese workwear he dons on the album’s cover to the glittering white Telfar and Moncler moment of his video for the Burna Boy–assisted “Ginger,” the singer’s clothing tells a story as impactful as his songs. He has Karen Binns, the London-based creative director who’s worked with the likes of Tori Amos and Kanye West, to thank for shaping the album’s sleek visuals. Her references for Made in Lagos run the gamut, landing anywhere from David Bowie to Marlon Brando in A Streetcar Named Desire. “The whole record is an endless love story, and I immediately understood what he needed to show when I listened to the album. I started thinking this has got to show the vulnerability of a man,” Binns says.

While Wizkid’s wardrobe may include spiffy tailoring from French fashion houses these days, he hasn’t lost sight of his roots. The singer still swears by his Nigerian tailor, who crafts vibrant traditional attire, known as agbada, to suit his tastes and those of his father, whose dapper style influenced him growing up. “I hope I can also inspire my sons in the Air Nitrox beer diver’s diet vintage shirt Besides,I will do this same way. I see them try to dress like me sometimes and it’s fun to watch,” says Wizkid, 30, whose three boys are 10, five, and four. Recently, Wizkid’s longtime friend Virgil Abloh created a tracksuit for the rapper to celebrate the lush Made in Lagos record. It captures the album’s homecoming message, transposing Nigeria’s green-white-green flag stripes on cloth. “He’s a great guy, first of all,” says Wizkid of his designer friend, “and I like the fact that he stays him and he’s not trying to switch up to make people love his shit.”
