“When I buy fabrics like this (pointing to his adire trousers) I enrich my people and when I sew it, I enrich indigenous tailors. I don’t like jeans; I have one pair of jeans all my life, but I always wear white at home, just sitting around. I’m not fashionable at all. I can wear this outfit all week. People complain, “Why are you wearing same pair of shoes? Please change your shoes?

“I have so many pairs now that I didn’t buy with my money. It’s either my girlfriend or my sister bought the shoes for me and they get angry that I still wear the same shoes week-in week-out.

“If I’m comfortable with something, I stick to it. I’m very simple. Many things don’t interest me. I don’t wear gold, I don’t wear chain (why should something be hanging on my neck) I don’t wear wristwatch not that I don’t like them but I’m not concerned about all that,” he told The Sun.
