We’ve told you before Jim Iyke is one of the dappest guys of his time and now, we can confirm he’s officially a runway model to watch. He’s been flaunting some clean-cut looks on Instagram, so it was only fair the creative director of Johnson Johnson tapped the actor to help jazz up his show on the Day 1 of Lagos Fashion Week.
The show, which took place at the Eko Hotel and Suites saw Jim modeling for Johnson Johnson, wearing men’s traditional white 2-piece accessorized with massive eyeglasses and a black beret:
The actor has been a long time fashion guy, having featured in some menswear campaigns but it was riveting to see him parade the runway — even the crowd couldn’t have enough of it as he glides through the catwalk in his white installation.
First catwalk or more like dogwalk for @johnsonjohnson_menswear. Premium bespoke at the Lagos fashion week( LFDW). Half way down the aisle I was like "Lawd! What did I get myself into?!" But like every fish out of water experience I indulge in, the humour is precedent. It was an exhilarating 20 mins of uncertainty! #LOL I probably won the dog walk model of the entire event. But where there's a lapse of skills, be sure to make up with an abundance of confidence and zeal. Thank you for the love guys! The applause and catcalls is deeply appreciated. 😂😎🤣🙌🏽💪🏾✊🏿 Now back to BIZ! #Harvpapa #Gladysboi #CatwalkHeroLOL #LiveLoveLaugh #JohnsonJohnson #StylePiper #DogWalkChronicles
