Not stopping there, he added that the shoe also belonged to his granddad and should be around 20 years old. Layi explained that the suits were about 30 years old.

In his words:

“It’s funny how the suits I normally wear to play D’Law belonged to my grandfather, he passed them down to me and the suit is older than me. As you’re looking at that suit, I have about five more with different colours. It was just me ransacking his wardrobe and seeing old things, even the shoe. I think the shoe is still a bit more recent, it would be close to 20 years old. At least I’m older than the shoe but the suit is older than me, it’s nearly 30 years.”
