YouTubers Milly Chebby and Terence Creative are among the Kenyan celebrities who were on the receiving end after harsh criticism on social media over their choice of fashion for the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever premiere.
Since last weekend,a section of Kenyans felt that several celebrities invited to the event didn’t put in the necessary effort required when dressing up at the Century Cinemax, Sarit Center, Nairobi event.
However,the celebrities have come out to defend themselves and ofcourse Milly Chebby and hubby couldn’t be left behind.
For the occasion, the couple chose to wear sandals and matching brown velvet outfits, commonly worn during Kikuyu traditional weddings, ruracio with Terence complimenting his look with a paint on his right eye and both arms.
He completed the look with a head bracelet and a golden rungu while Milly had her hair neatly weaved and tightened with the porcupine spikes.
“Most Kenyans didn’t understand why we showed up like that. I guess it’s because many haven’t watched Wakanda yet. The entire theme has heavily borrowed from our African culture, and we felt it was necessary to bring our WakandaVibe.We married a little bit of Kalenjin design (where I come from) and my husband’s Kikuyu, and brought that to life with our outfit.”Milly said in an interview with media.
She went on to reveal the cost of the outfit
“I am not sure I should be saying this, but it was quite some investment. For both of our pieces, to make up by Bochabery beauty to our stylist Chebicreation, to the rungu I would say we parted with around Sh250,000 for the occasion,” Chebby said.
