|Why Do Nigerian Artists Always Put On Winter Outfit In Thier Music Video? by Freiburger(m): 3:25pm On Jun 07, 2016|
I dont Know if I'm the only one who noticed this. Most Nigerian artists are always on winter outfits, from leader jackets to shoes that are mean't for weather temperatures below 0 °C. You will also see them on those clothings even on videos that has little or nothing to do with the west. Nigeria is not in a cold region. Although I've also been seeing some few artists on their traditional attire. Beautiful I would say.
The reason why I'm asking is because most of these artists will always claim to be inspired by Baba Fela. Na Baba Fela stlye be dat?
I haven't seen any western artist who displays the african outfits like most of our artists are displaying the western outfits. You will even see some of them covering their neck with rags inside the hot weather
What could be the reason behind this? madness or culture sharing?

Cultural appropriation. They all want to appear foreign or well-traveled to fans. Also done because they draw inspiration from US rap videos where warm clothing is the major fashion.

Freiburger:Who cares about creativity in the never-ending search for endorsements?
If you want to see performers who embrace African wears there's always Yemi Alade; she either wears bespoke Nigerian designer creations or native Nigerian wears.
