The Big Brother Naija All Stars celebrated Nigeria today with a display of vibrant attire and tales that highlight the beauty of the country's varied cultures, but we have since learned that they are also passionate about honouring their roots outside the Big Brother house with a display of colourful cultural fashion that reflects their pride and appreciation for their heritage. From the exotic-looking tye and dye wear and intricate beadwork to bold head wraps and amazing traditional accessories, the Top 6 housemates have shown us that embracing one's cultural identity is a powerful way to celebrate diversity and unity in Nigeria. Their social media profiles are filled with stunning images that not only showcase their fashion choices but also serve as a reminder of the rich cultural tapestry that makes up this beautiful nation.
