Celebrity stylist, Toyin Lawani, has reacted after she was dragged by Nigerians on social media over an error on BBNaija star, Hermes’ outfit to the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever premiere in Lagos.
The event, which was held in Lagos on Sunday, November 6, was well attended by Nigerian celebrities, who all made statements with their costumes. However, among the glitz and glamour of the day, a spelling error on Hermes’ costume, which was styled by self-styled king of fashion, Toyin Lawani, didn’t go unnoticed.
In an effort to honor Black Panther star, Chadwick Boseman, who died in 2020 after a four-year battle with cancer, Hermes had the late actor’s face and name emblazoned on the back of his cape, but the name was misspelled.
“R.I.P. Chad Boswick” was boldly written on the cape instead of Chadwick Boseman.
The mistake sparked a ton of responses from Nigerians on social media, and soon Chadwick Boseman’s incorrect spelling began trending on Twitter.
Hermes’ stylist, Toyin Lawani, received harsh criticism from netizens for overlooking that minor detail.
Reacting a Twitter user wrote, “Who tf spells Chadwick Boseman as ‘Chad Boswick’?”
@_peacefull_wealth, “She even write am for the clothe 😢 how Hermès wan take hide the name na so em go dey patrol with wrong name for premier and correction fluid no dey around, chai 😢”.
@itz.deya__,“How won’t you know the name of someone you’re supposedly paying tribute to and even attending his movie premier?”
Well, Toyin Lawani, has now seemingly reacted to the backlash.
Taking to her Instagram page on Tuesday morning, November 8, she noted that she has no time for naysayers.
“No time for naysayers, who God don bless he don bless, we keep moving forward”, she wrote
