Read style predictions ahead of the 2018 AMVCAs with the stylist to the stars, Kayito Nwokedi. He opens up about the celebrities he will be working with this year and the looks he is excited for.

The AMVCAs will hold on Saturday, 1st of September at the Eko Hotel & Suites in Lagos and will air LIVE on all Africa Magic channels on DStv and GOtv.

When was your first time you worked for a client at the AMVCAs? What was the experience like?
In 2015. Hectic, but thrilling.

Can you tell us which celebrities you will be working with this year?
Nonso Bassey, Nkem Marchie, Tomi Odunsi….for now.

This year’s edition is not during the usual award season, do you think that will affect the colours and themes that celebrities will wear?
I don’t think it will. I don’t think red carpet glam is affected by that.

Which celebrities’ look are you most excited to see this year?
Honestly, nobody. I’m open to pleasant surprises.

What are your style predictions for this year’s edition?
A lot of old Hollywood, structured dresses…and a lot of black.

What are some things you do/don’t want to see on the Red Carpet this year?
Do: pants.
Don’t: sequins. Evening wear doesn’t have to be defined by gowns or sparkle.
