PICS: Nadia Nakai’s amazing looks at AFRIMMA 2023 in Texas

She hosted the 10th edition of the AFRIMMAs.


Nadia Nakai oozed style in the US this past weekend when she hosted the 10th edition of the African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA). 

The ceremony was held at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Texas on Sunday.

The Imma Boss hitmaker had multiple outfit changes which comprised three designer garments.

Nadia’s fashion statement at the AFRIMMAs

The first look was designed by Uganda’s leading fashion house, Monix_k’outure. Pro makeup artist, Ashley O, worked on the face beat while Nancy Glo came through with the styling.

South African fashion designer Gert Johan Coetzee made sure Nadia looked stunning in her second wardrobe change.

“Third look for the AFRIMMA awards! Congratulations to all the nominees and winners! Thank you for allowing me to host,” Nadia wrote, showing off her third garment also from Monix_k’outure.
