While we may adore celebrities and public figures for their sense of great fashion style and class, we sometimes forget to think about how they pulled it all together. Most, if not all celebrities, have people behind the scenes who advice and probably decide on what to wear —the colours to match the occasion, the brands to wear, hair style—and how to wear them.
In Ghana, one of the people who have been behind the style of several top celebrities is Coverboy Kobby. Born Manasseh nana Agyapong Amoah, he is widely known in the Ghanaian and fashion fraternity as Coverboykobby. Coverboy Kobby is indeed a force to reckon with in this competitive age of style, glitz and glamour.
He was born on 4th April in Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti Region of Ghana. A graduate from the University for Development Studies (UDS), Coverboy Kobby works mainly as a fashion Stylist, image consultant, brand Influencer and models manager.
His work of art springs from the norm to cutting edge designs, engineered to suit any class, taste and style of preference. He is currently the official stylist for Ghanaian actress and TV Host, Benedicta Gafah.
