It all started with a car, a N70m G Wagon, that Femi Gbajabiamila gave his wife Salamatu. The gift went completely viral and made headlines. Now, Salamatu Gbajabiamila and her daughter Zaina (known as Zaina Muccia), flex for the internet whenever they can. Zaina actually made the cover of Dazed, and the creative consultant has appeared in Vogue. It’s a normal thing for a model to show off on Instagram, but when her mom joins her for the party, it only becomes better.
The Gbajabiamila’s make it feel like home for me. With their bright patterns, they remind me of styles from back home (Burkina Faso, West Africa). They mix and match patterns with no fear, constantly creating and showing what their idea of “normal” is. Also, can we talk about how Salamatu is the most stylish African aunty? I mean, that last picture–come on! Take a look at this mother-daughter duo for yourself!
