His Excellency, President Goodluck Jonathan
The No1 Naija Hat Man
We all know our President's story...His humble start and struggle in life, born to poor canoe makers. How can we forget? It was his ticket to the hearts of ordinary Nigerians as during the run up to elections, him and his campaign team constantly reminded us that as a child he walked to school with "NO SHOES ON" .....blah! blah! ...what they never told us though was if he "ALWAYS HAD A HAT ON" but we suspect he did... You would have to be seriously lucky to bump into him without his trade-mark hat on in true traditional Bayelsan style (in fact you would have to be lucky to bump into him..full stop..LOL!). I like how President Jonathan is assured in his identity proudly turning up in his Niger-Delta regalia on National and International soil and guess what? Wearing hats is fast catching on. I've often wondered if it's a result of  the  'Jonathan Effect' ...due to daily over-exposure to the President's 'hat-attack' pictures in the media or just a personal style choice like our favourite 'Hat Man' Banky W..

Unlike ladies who wear hats to cover up a multitude of sins on a 'bad hair day or two' (but swag it as style so no one knows), men seem to wear hats as part of their 'Style Statement' (or maybe to hide missed Barber's appointments too) but would you say these men (including Sir Presido) look stylish in hats? If you're a hat loving bloke/lady please 'Hat-ducate' us..Why????


  1. Hats are great for the summer... Yes, I'm male... However, in these pics, many of the hats don't seem to flow with the outfit...
