In what has to be the greatest backlash in her career, fashion Designer Deola Sagoe is trending on social media right now because of the advert of her latest collection Komole that featured white and foreign models in traditional wears.

Critics are saying that what is the essence of calling a collection African gem if Africans are not the ones showcasing it.

The collection already has celebrity patrons especially brides who wore it for their engagement weddings. Fatima Dangote, Damilola Osinbajo to name a few have won the pieces of the collection for their wedding.

This advert is the opposite of what the designer has been doing with the collection.

Watch the advert below.
