Awani’s identity was revealed by a social commentator Freedom Atsepoyi aka ‘Mr Jollof’.

Mr Jollof, in a now viral video, berated the media for not celebrating his designs as they celebrated Nike’s jersey designs.

Awani, the CEO of GT Stitches, is the Nigerian-Canadian designer that designed the ‘Buba’ and ‘Sokoto’ worn by the Super Eagles to Russia on Monday.
