Charles Oputa nicknamed Charly Boy, a singer/songwriter from Nigeria, has joined the popular Shettima challenge.

The All Progressive Congress vice presidential candidate Kashim Shettima’s attire at the opening ceremony of the annual general conference of the Nigerian Bar Association sparked the controversy.

Shettima arrived to the conference on Monday in Lagos dressed in a dark suit, a crimson tie, and some sneakers.

In response to a widely shared image of him sitting with his suit buttoned and tie protruding, his detractors charged that he lacked style.

The attire that Kashim Shettima, the vice presidential candidate for the APC, wore to the Nigerian Bar Association’s Annual General Conference on Monday generated a lot of online discussion.

Former Borno State governor Mr. Shettima gained notoriety online after a picture of him wearing gym sneakers with a baggy suit surfaced on the Nigerian Twittersphere.

Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, was represented at the occasion by Mr. Shettima.

In classic GenZ form, it gave birth to the “#Shettimachallenge” fashion craze.
