Netizens, perceived his mode of dressing as that of imitating crossdressers like Bobrisky, James Brown, and others, which inspired a new name from fans, ‘Little Miss Bella.’
The styling of the skirt was certainly poor, the top looked like he was going out in the snow, and the bottom like like he was going to play the bagpipe in Scotland.

The culture of the place determines what men or women can wear. The norm in Nigeria and most places is men wear trousers. In Scotland, you probably wouldn’t be mocked for wearing a kilt.
Besides the cultural aspect of it, modernity has made men – especially those in the entertainment industry, reject gender-normative fashion.
The trending movement is genderless fashion, which is why we see a lot of men painting nails, carrying women’s bags, and wearing makeup.
