Seun Kuti’s Dazzling Debut at Paris Fashion Week with Casablanca Collaboration

Afrobeats artist Seun Kuti took the Paris Fashion Week runway by storm as he collaborated with the French label Casablanca.

The youngest son of the legendary Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Kuti, confidently strutted down the catwalk in a vibrant green and white ensemble.

This outfit was part of Casablanca’s Printemps-Été 2024 collection, themed “Day of Victory.” Alongside stylists Ola Ebiti and Helena Tejedor, the Afrobeats musician donned a green and white bodysuit named “Stuntman on Set.” Casablanca’s “Day of Victory” aimed to pay homage to great artists and activists while focusing on Africa’s progressive future. The runway show embodied a cultural and philosophical convergence between Nigeria and Casablanca.

Designer Charaf Tajer created these outfits to represent the rich cross-cultural exchanges found in African art, music, and film. Nigerian culture and lifestyle have exerted significant influence on the Western world, evident in the rising collaborations between Western musicians and top Afrobeats artists. The fashion industry has also seen this influence, with Lagos-based fashion designer Bubu Ogisi, Ashley Okoli, and Korty EO gracing the runway during the Victoria Secret World Tour Premiere. Seun Kuti’s presence on the runway signifies a notable advancement for Africans.

Seun Kuti’s appearance on the Paris Fashion Week runway stands out as a bright moment in his life, which has been clouded by media criticism and controversy stemming from his conflicts with the Nigerian Police.
