Okada drivers get behind the red team while wearing crazy hats

I promise, this red obsession will end soon. But not before we take a look at the superb theatrics of these outfits worn by two of Freetown’s favourite Okada drivers.


So much to get excited about with Abdul’s Sargent Pepper’s themed look. The red coat with the policeman’s hat from Kent Police station (on the Freetown peninsula) complimented by white square-toed shoes and pants  give it all a polished finish. You’ll never be a lonely heart in this outfit Abdul, girls go nuts for a man in uniform. 


Mohammed lets us know he’s on the red team with his Ray Ban sunglasses, but clearly the star of this outfit is the hat. He had no idea where it came from but my guess is that an insecure 15 year old from the mid west of America made a charity store donation after quitting the marching band when realising it was not going to get him a girlfriend. Such a young and foolish mistake. I bet Mohammed is getting loads of chick action in this hat.

Victorious fashions

The elections are over and the results have been called but the jubilant APC supporters aren’t ready to hang up the red threads just yet. 

Poloroid photographer Daniel Sesay brings some restraint to the election fashion parade with this sophisticated linen jacket and matching tie.
Merchandise seller Hamza hopes the red trend never ends as he’s still got three car boot loads of red belts, Ernest Bai Koroma badges and red framed fake Ray Bans to offload. 

When word got out that SLPP supporter Mr Samuel Koroma had worn the world’s biggest tie, to a rally last week, a bitter rivalry erupted from the APC camp who lashed back with the world’s smallest tie. Mr Foday Evans said his tie is just 35cm long. 


Michelle Obama, if you’re still undecided about an inauguration outfit,  I think we’ve found you one. Sheka Kargbo is owning this 80s vintage Karin Stevens faux linen suit cinched elegantly at the waist with a patent leather belt and teamed with a policeman’s hat.
