It is not uncommon when celebrities portray a life that is completely opposite of who they truly are. This is the case with celebrity fashion designer, Swanky Jerry who shocked Nigerians, when he proposed to his long time mystery girlfriend.
What is shocking is not the fact he secretly had a long time girlfriend all the while and just proposed to her, it is the fact the image he had portrayed of himself, was one that would propose to a man, not a woman.
Maybe to foster his image as a creative fashion designer to celebrities, especially to female celebrities, Swanky Jerry had unwittingly fostered the rumour that he was gay. While the rumours spread that he may be gay, because of his dressing and mannerisms, the celebrity fashion designer did nothing to debunk these rumours.
The celebrity stylist has styled big names, he was the official fashion designer of Dangote’s daughter’s groom, Jamil Abubakar, he has also styled Davido, Tonto Dikeh, amongst others.
This is almost the same perception Nigerians have of media personality, Denrele Edun, but in his case he has come out to debunk these rumours as they spread.
Clearly this is a cautionary tale for celebrities who portray a facade of who they are not, thus they must not cry foul if they are wrongfully judged by many.
