Ace comedian Atunyota Alleluya Akporobomerere best known as Alibaba is no doubt one of Nigeria's most fashionable celebrities.

The comedy legend rarely gets upsets, as he is well known to be fond of cracking people up.
However, Ali doesn't want people to ride on his meekness and funny side, as he has been critically bashed over his choice of attire to the just concluded African Magic Viewers Choice Awards night.

He is still obviously upset about what transpired between him and some 'clueless females' at the last AMVCA who acted as Fashion Police. On that note, he took to his Instagram page to pen down his disappointment; " Trust you had a great weekend. I did. And had been looking forward to sharing something with you. So, I have also Been looking for a clear picture of me that was taken at the #AMVCA ... But it's not about the picture itself. It was about someone who claims to be a Fashion Critic...... who made a comment that I thought I should harp on. She said, "Bros, didn't you get the invite? It said 'black tie' "... herself and a few of her fashion buffs had a laugh at my expense. So I let the laugh settle down and I asked, did you read the part that said "black tie or Glamorous?" I then saw one of them quickly bring her card holder invite holder out, read the dress code portion and shoved it back in the case. The dumbest of the four, who is also on television, said something like, but this is not glamorous. So I pointed at Kunle Afolayan, who was decked in AGBADA. And she was sucked in to my trick. "Eheeeeen! That is glamorous." Her cronies agreed. So I dropped my joker. 'Really? So it's only the traditional attire from the YORUBA or Hausa speaking part of Nigeria that is glamorous? Is that what you were taught in school? Or is that the position of your media house? Or is that all your knowledge about fashion availed you? May be you are TRIBALISTIC. May be you think AFRICANS must look like a white man to be glamorous! May be you have no values! By the way, I thought this was an AFRICAN magic viewers' choice awards (notice the capital letters)? At this point, 2 of them started that line that signals they had gotten the message... "Bros you are correct, but you know we were just teasing you. HABA! Can't you take a joke?" My point was made and I walked off. The problem we have in this country is not totally our government's failures. It is also the failure of many of us to know what is important to us as AFRICANS and what we should value in our culture. ATTIRE for journalist WEY no recognize glamorous ATTIRE. As for any journalist that thinks dressing in my traditional outfit meant for special occasions is not glamorous, please check a dictionary and revert! #broadcasters #fashionPolice #AfricanCulture #UrhoboAttire," he wrote.
