The internet was indeed abuzz with the various display of Agbada design and style. However, many were looking forward to Ebuka’s Agbada design. This is because he has been crowned by Nigerians as the King of Agbada, however, he left fans disappointed. Clearly, he was absent at the premiere of the movie, ‘Merry Men’
The Agbada is a glamorous traditional Yoruba male attire, that exhibits style and panache.
