WE HUNG OUT WITH JIDENNA & HE TOOK OUR ELLE MYSTERY BOX CHALLENGE

He is the ultimate #ClassicMan with a flow (sartorial and music) like no other.

With a passion for life, Africa and the next-gen of achievers, New York-based Jidenna, who credits his late father (a Nigerian professor) for inspiring his dandy wardrobe, is an all-round honey (yes, we’re drooling over those eyes).

Speaking his mind with heart and soul, he is not afraid to tackle social issues through music. And we can’t ignore that VMA performance #lit. So naturally we asked him about it when we hung out with him on his most recent trip to Joburg (thanks to our friends at Sony Music Africa). ‘Dope,’ he said.

And we can attest to his brilliance and free-spirited, forward-thinking approach to life when we asked him to take the 90 second #ELLEMysteryBox Challenge… Curious? Check below.
