In the words of Mark simpson, the lad that coined the term, ‘metrosexual’, ‘the typical metrosexual is a young man with money to spend, living in or within easy reach of a metropolis – because that’s where all the best shops, clubs, gyms & hairdressers are; particular professions, such as modelling, waiting tables, media, pop music & nowadays, sport seem to attract them.
These modern guys are unafraid to buy beauty products, get their nails done, spend thousands on their hair & even 6-figures on their total look. Confident in their masculinity, they push the envelope as nigeria’s top 5 metrosexuals
5. ALEX EKUBBO
This model cum actor shot to limelight after emerging the 1st runner-up at the 2010 Mr. Nigeria pageant competition. His subsequent ‘bromance’ with Uti Nwachukwu also cemented his spot as one of the youngest fashionistas to look out for. Like so many other preety-boy actors, the ladies can’t seem to get enough of this well-bulit, tall & fair-skinned chap as evident on twitter (His Retweets of female admirers actually litter my timeline on an daily basis). His impeccable clean shave and style has made him the youngest metro on our list.
4. BRYAN OKWARA
With the face of a roman god,the frame and built of Hercules, and the hair of an Adonis, Ikenna as I like to call him is the perfect metro. We just love this colour embracing first ever winner of the Mr. Nigeria pageant. With that everly radiant skin, we need not be told that Bryan spends more than necessary to look like Bryan.
3. JIM IYKE
Known for his love of self, this rabid metrosexual whose interest in his own appearances is evident in his choice of clothings for movie roles is the poster boy for everything flashy and suave. He is also a notorious playboy & freak for fast cars.
2. UTI NWACHUKWU
This ex reality tv star has been plagued with gay rumours like so many others on this list, but he denies being homosexual & for the sake of secret crushes, the ladies do believe him. His neatly packaged dread-locks (I hear he is now on low-cut) and expertly groomed persona has made him the toast of everything from red-carpets to runways, tv, mag covers, etc. He remains a fashion aficionado with immaculate grooming and an ever expanding wardrobe.
The fairest of them all,D’banj has redefined male style with his fashion forward outfits(Even his oga @ the top, Kanye West is a fan). He never wears same thing twice and his clean cut wear & glossy skin has made him the most desired Metrosexual in Nigeria.
