Toyin Lawani faults Nana Akua Addo over clash with alleged designer of her AMVCA outfit

  • Toyin Lawani has weighed into the ongoing AMVCA outfit controversy which has been going on since the ceremony ended.
  • Nana Akua Oddo got into a squabble with Ezinne Olivia who claimed to have designed the Ghanaian actress’s outfit without getting credit.
  • Reacting, Toyin Lawani faulted Nana Akua Oddo and revealed why.

Fashion stylist Toyin Lawani, also known as Tiannah, has faulted Ghanaian actress Nana Akua Oddo over a disagreement with one Ezinne Olivia who claimed she designed the actress’ outfit to the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA).

Nana had threatened a lawsuit against Ezinne after the latter claimed she designed the movie star’s dress at AMVCA 2024 but she was denied credit.

In a cease and desist letter, Nana, through her lawyers, asked Ezinne to retract the defamatory posts she made about her refusal to give credit and offer an apology which would be posted in two national dailies within 48 hours.

Weighing in on the matter in an Instagram post on Tuesday, Toyin Lawani stated that Nana should have enlisted the services of a professional tailor who would not feel entitled to a tag on social media after getting paid.

The 42-year-old said that despite paying for the service rendered, there is nothing wrong with tagging the fashion designer.

She added that celebrities like Nana could still pay Ezinne and tag her on social media because it would help her business because “we rise by lifting others.”

Toyin Lawani wrote in parts:

“Atimes we don’t expect them to run the service for free, some might not even have the money to do what you want, if that inner wear was gucci there’s no way they wouldn’t have been tagged.

“Next time NANA should get a professional tailor to run the service (that won’t feel entitled cause that’s their job they are not designers, they just follow instructions and help u bring out ur ideas) and get her stylist to do the work.

“This girl is a young designer that will by all means want to affiliate with that dress, cause styling it wasn’t easy, she was very wrong to have claimed she designed the dress at lst without clarifying what and what services she offered exactly, We saw proof she didn’t do the 3d which was mostly the main structure of the dress, She would have stated she built the inner dress and helped styled. So this caused why everyone went after the Nana babe, But let’s all do better, That’s we pay people for service doesn’t mean we can’t tag them, We rise by lifting one another.

“We all can do better with a little support by tagging when possible, ontop I still feed everyone on my set. Well except the girl had a nasty attitude towards work then will not tag her.”
