Esimaje Awani Super Eagles traditional wear designer

Nigerians have demanded recognition for Esimaje Awani, the designer of the Super Eagles traditional outfit for which they have been tagged the “best fashion team” at the Russia 2018 World Cup which kicks off on Thursday.

Awani’s identity was revealed by social media user, Freedom Atsepoyi, aka ‘Mr Jollof’.

Awani, the CEO of GT Stitches, is a Nigerian-Canadian designer based in Delta State.

His design was worn by the Super Eagles as they departed Austria to Russia on Monday.

It has attracted international media attention similar to the now sold out Super Eagles Nike jersey.

Awani’s outfits earned the Super Eagles rating as “the team with the best travelling uniform” in Russia.
