Popular Nigerian entertainer, Nasty Blaq, has been announced as the Brand Ambassador for international fashion house, Run is Fashion.
Taking to his Instagram page to announce the feat, the creative said:
“I’m excited to announce my collaboration with @Runisfashion (Dubai, UAE) as Brand Ambassador and also, the launch of our first Fashion Collection. It’s always been my dream to crossover my comedy from social media to influencing for brands with relatable products.
“I love fashion so this collabo is a dream come true. And the amazing part is, we’re still keeping the African vibe in the collection with adire and other local print. It’s young, urban, stylish, and authentically African,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, the first-of-a-kind endorsement has kicked off with a new collection inspired by Nasty Blaq and pieces from the collection are already available at the Run is Fashion website.
