A KING OF ONESELF
Multi-platinum rapper T.I has not only included actor starring in movies and most recently joining the cast of the highly acclaimed golden globe award winning show starring Kelsey Grammar “Boss”, he has also added fashion designer. It should be no surprise that someone as stylish and versatile in style as T.I would dabble in fashion. You can catch him in denim and a hoodie or in a three-piece suit and look equally stylish in both. Akoo Clothing founded in 2008 has garnished a lot of attention with the young, hip, and including the likes of celebrities.
With hand printed t-shirts, to the details found in the denim, to the vibrant colors found in the classic button downs, to the stylish cardigans, the combinations of all these plus the uniqueness of the style that can be worn and styled for any occasion is what makes this brand so successful. It’s urban meets chic.
Akoo clothing has chosen “Rotimi” to be their brand Ambassador. If you haven’t heard of Rotimi yet I’m sure you will. Rolling Out magazine deemed him “Hollywood’s Next Triple Threat”, BET.com refers to him as “Jack of all trades”. He has opened for Jennifer Hudson, Estelle, Nerd, and T.I. Songs with artist Gucci, Dawn Richards (previously from Danity Kane and Dirty Money now is solo) and more. A main character on the show “Boss” starring alongside T.I., Kelsey Grammar and Sanaa Lathan. Singer, songwriter, and actor haling from N.J this is someone we have to keep our eyes opened for.
Upon meeting Rotimi I can immediately see why the ladies love him! He is humble, intelligent and has such a great personality so it made interviewing him that much more comfortable. Please get to know Rotimi a little more and why Akoo clothing chose him. Check out the interview and behind the scene photos at the Akoo showroom.
