Meet Esimaje Awani, designer of the Super Eagles travel gear to World Cup

Some weeks after Nike released the Super Eagles World Cup kits that made a splash among football fans worldwide, the team’s travel gear to the mundial in Russia is also turning heads.

The green and white coloured outfit, which features a chest-covering embroidered eagle alongside matching hats and shoes, was put together by Esimaje Awani.

NAN reports that Awani’s identity was revealed by a social commentator Freedom Atsepoyi aka ‘Mr Jollof’.

Mr Jollof, in a now-viral video, berated the media for not celebrating his designs as they celebrated Nike’s jersey designs.

Awani, the CEO of GT Stitches, is said to be a Nigerian-Canadian.

Awani is a Warri, Delta state-based designer who specialises in making male and female kaftans.
