Sure, a pair of denim shorts worn sans a shirt with some gold bling and a black and white cap is always going to look great but this is certainly not the most remarkable outfit we’ve seen this election season in Sierra Leone. What makes this outfit special is that it was worn while history was being made. Moments before the photo was taken, it was confirmed by the National Election Commission of Sierra Leone that Ernie B had made it to his second term. Thanks Alusine Kamara for taking the time to strike your victory pose while the streets erupted into complete and utter mayhem around you. And big ups to Mama Salone for holding peaceful and fair elections.
Best friends Kadija and Thursday are just begging for a giant sized ghetto blaster and a set of skipping ropes to start a double dutch 80s skip-off to the sound track of Malcolm Maclaren.
First cousins Bai and Assan each went for a no-fuss red T-shirt. I think what has lifted their outfits from ordinary to highly commendable-edging-towards-outstanding are the hats. Bai in a stetson and Assan chose a fluffy red beanie.
A Sierra Leonian election rally is a great excuse to bust out your most radical wig and I don’t think it get’s much more crazy than Animata’s effort.
My favourite outfit of the day. Sahr gives his onesie an adult edge by accessorizing with a slick pair of red Ray Bans and tartan headwrap.
