Our own Dayo Idowu is gracing the pages of the August issue of Essence Magazine! She represented her parents’ native country of Nigeria in the annual Essence beauty issue where she spoke about the cultural importance of the gele, the traditional headdress. “The gele is a beautiful head wrap that’s mainly worn for big celebrations & weddings. My mom owns more than 50, & I love to look at all the different colors & patterns,” says Dayo. Congratulations! What’s next? A tribute Insta account…?
