Yusuff Aina Art for THEVICTORIAO

Blog Feature – The HeART of Ainaism with Yusuff Aina.

I met Aina Eniyan via Instagram. Like many of his clients.

So, I took a step towards entering the competition. The theme of the competition appeared quite cultural and I was one with a flair for my culture. I love the Yoruba culture. I feel a certain kind of joy to represent with the Yoruba people. Trust me, they amuse you more than they abuse you.

My Ake Festival experience (1)

Lace dresses are for inaugurations or formal events (says the voice inside my head), but mama’s going to wear it anyway! So, in other to get myself fully prepared for any form of atmosphere, I put on a short sleeve lace dress made by Tash Apparel, simple ballerina flats and a matching headband to vibe with all the positive energy I was already giving off. Nothing prepared me for what was going to come after…
