Award-winning Nigerian Actor and Producer, Kunle Afolayan recently launched his own clothing line named “Kunle’s kembe”. He made this known to the public through his social media pages.
We see this brand as one out to celebrate and re-invent an abandoned African wear. We love it and we are sure it will be accepted by Africans both home and abroad.
According to Kunle, the African trousers come in different colours and sizes. They can be worn by both male and female.
The Kembe is African attire, a three-quarter baggy trouser. It is loose, wide-bottomed one that reaches slightly below the knee, but not as far as the ankle.
Back in the days, Kembe and Sorro were accompanied with agbada and buba. Sooro is longer than the kembe, it is similar to skinny jeans where in it is close fitting, goes all the way to the ankles and is narrow at the bottom while the kembe on the hand is looser, knee-length, and wider at the bottom.Kunle Kembe which nicknamed KK doesn’t have to be worn on agbada and buba but with stylish and classy T-shirt.
Kunle has received multiple awards for his movies. His most celebrated works include October 1 and The Figurine, where he took on the role of both actor and director. Some of his other notable works include Irapada (or Redemption), The CEO and Phone Swap.

Being an outstanding Producer and Director, known for celebrating African culture by telling our stories in a unique way, we are not surprise with this new African clothing line of his.
We await more remarkable initiatives from the Nollywood genius but before then let’s join him to celebrate African culture by patronising his brand and spreading the news.
