The eighth edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) saw some interesting fashion moments, as is typical of high-profile events.

While stars like Osas Ighodaro, Nengi, and a slew of others had fans gushing over their ensembles, it wasn’t the same for everyone else.

Toyin Lawani, a Nigerian designer/stylist, brought all the drama with her look at the vent, and popular crossdresser James Brown did the same. However, their appearance was met with mixed feelings because not everyone seemed to like them.

Below are seven stars whose looks sparked mixed reactions:
