The “Slay. Eat. Repeat” All Things Ankara Brunch 2019 campaign serves up a luxurious and elegant perspective on the west African fine dining experience.
The campaign features Adeyanju “Yanju” Adeleke as the posh high class restaurant customer and and Nicholas “Sir Niick” Orji (Nikki Billie Jean’s brother) as the dapper valet and waiter.
The photos display a flamboyant woman in stylish Afro European garb, a debonair valet/waiter at a high end west African brunch restaurant and lavish mouth watering west African brunch cuisine.
The fashion film starts off with a posh lady arriving to the brunch in a black luxury car. The lady is slaying in a ankara print suit with a plunging neckline & a matching fascinator hat. She is greeted by a dapper valet wearing a sleek black suit with a red ankara print bow tie and pocket square. As she casually steps out the car with her shiny red pointed pumps, the valet escorts her into the restaurant.
Next, an exquisite array of traditional West African brunch cuisine is shown such as: white rice with stewed fish, sautéed spinach& sweet peeper garnish; suya with sweet peppers & onions; fried rice with steamed broccoli, carrots, stewed beef & fried plantains; pounded yam with egusi and stewed beef; sunny-side up eggs with steak, sautéed mushrooms & orange garnish. The valet who is also the waiter serves the lady a delectable plate of jollof rice with chicken, fried plantain and sweet pepper garnish. The video concludes with the lady enjoying her delicious meal.
