African designers Beyoncé featured in ‘Black is King’


Queen Bey released ‘Black is King’, the long-anticipated visuals to her album and as expected she shut the internet down with her looks.

With sourcing from all over the world, we can tell that her stylist Zerina Akers had her team working overtime. From Paris to the US down to Africa, every look sourced hit differently. But these are the brands we can’t stop gagging about and the best part is that they are all African. See them below.

Tongoro Studio

Beyoncé and Zerina Akers have been a fan of Tongoro Studio for a while now having featured them in past projects so this came as no surprise. The Senegalese brand is behind three of the most wearable looks from the entire film. From a casually styled houndstooth dress to an off-the-shoulder chiffon dress and a graphic three-piece suit all in white and black, the casual inspiration was at an all-time high.


Adama Paris

Beyoncé wore a custom all-yellow look by Senegalese designer, Adama Paris. The look featured a crop top with a flowing cape paired with full bottoms and a matching headpiece. The skin and glow served was everything!


Loza Maleombho

For her exciting dance scene in already, Beyoncé wears a white and black constructed chevron stripe number with chunky gold hardware. She accessorized with more gold and black sunnies. If you are keen on the part where the Queen did legwork and gbese, just look for her in this fit. Loza Maleombho did that!


Selam Fessahaye

The Eritrean-Swedish designer created the ultimate colour block moment in the film when Beyoncé and her dancers rocked tulle dresses with layered frills from the brand.

Turfah & Lanre Da Silva Ajayi

Back here in Nigeria, Daniel Obasi styled Tiwa Savage in an all-yellow look that featured pieces from Turfah and Lanre Da Silva Ajayi. She looked like a northern princess with a refined taste ready to take over!

Other notable Nigerian brands include Emmy Kasbit and Alara Lagos. But another look that stood out was Beyoncé in a multi-dimensional look, all created from hand-beaded Nigerian lace by 5:31 Jerome. Everything about the look was just a whole freaking vibe!



We love to see all these African brands killing the international scene. Every look hit hard obviously but which would you say you vibed with the most? Let us know in the comment section.
