The label's website explains, "the pieces in this collection are designed with clever reversible, convertible, multi-way systems creating many different style options. They are created to complement the basics we all have in our wardrobe; with various vibrant pieces that are easy to mix and match, bringing the 'wow' effect to a simple pair of jeans, black leggings, white shirt, little black dress or any style that fits your look." The beautiful prints that the garments are constructed from will definitely inspire wearers to be their own designer.

Mr. P Sets Out To Blaze His Own Trail With 'The Prodigal'

The veteran afropop star experiments with his own distinctive sound on his solo debut album.

Nigerian singer Peter Okoye has reached African music's greatest heights, yet still believes he has something to prove. One half of the superstar afropop duo P-Square, he's had one of the lengthiest and most successful careers in the history of afrobeats.

Now with the release of his debut album The Prodigal, he believes it's time to fully take his solo career to the next level.

Now, four years later, Mr. P has finally served us with his debut solo album.
