About: A Nasty Boy

A Nasty Boy is a new radical fashion publication based out of Lagos—Nigeria that explores otherness in fashion, people and culture.

Always on the search for what is new and pace-setting in fashion and culture, A Nasty Boy features exceptional fashion and people while weaving in paradigm-shifting editorial collaborations of  visual content with emerging photographers, filmmakers and stylists from Nigeria and beyond.

” We strive to challenge the industry by doing things differently. We worship unconventional ideas, disruptive creatives and shape shifters. We appreciate difference in whatsoever form, shape or kind. Our visual stories are shocking, provoking and sparking. We will not apologize for how we choose to interpret fashion or art” – Richard Akuson

Our Audience

We don’t imagine to cater to all: Just fashion devotees, globally curious misfits  and those who genuinely take pride in the things that make them stand out. Those that get us, get us!


Sometimes our visual content will not be safe for the work place. Other times you’ll have to explain why you come here and we won’t make it any easier for you with our provocative editorials and swear words; take it in good spirit!
