The recently concluded Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards (AMVCA), witnessed a lot of Nigerian celebrities making several attention grabbing appearances on the red carpet, all thanks to the creative stylists and glam teams behind their looks.
So good looking was the outfit of former Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) housemates that they managed to snag the awards for the best dressed male and female respectively. However, celebrity stylist Toyin Lawani did not think they deserved it, and after she made her opinion public, fellow stylist, Swanky Jerry, was quick to drag her through the mud for her comments.

Jerry in a couple of posts that have now been deleted on his official Instagram page, wondered how Lawani could have effortlessly downplayed the hard work of designers that worked tirelessly to create pieces for their celebrity clients.

Swanky seemed to have been particularly upset because he designed the dress that made Mercy emerge as the best dressed female celebrity at the event.
The stylist while taking a jab at his former boss appreciated every creative mind that put in the work to make celebrities look good at the award show.
In a different post, he made it clear that the difference between them is clear. According to Swanky, he is an international designer while Lawani is local.

Shortly after Swanky's post, Lawani returned with a lengthy post in which she fired back at Swanky. Labeling him an ingrate and a silly fellow, Lawani noted that she did not rubbish anyone's work but was only passing comments at the looks that caught her fancy at the event.
