Beyoncé’s recently unveiled music video for Spirit from the album The Lion King: The Gift has got us in our feelings!
The video features flawless choreography and impeccable visuals that stirs up emotions. In case you’re set to see it, watch Here.
Every Outfit in the Spirit Video was a hit but the looks by these African designers stood out for us.
Founded in 2016 by Sarah Diouf, Tongoro is a ready-to-wear label dedicated to the development of Senegal. Queen B was draped in a custom Tongoro Bamako suit as well as the Cairo facepiece and earrings which was also seen on her dancers.
This is not the first time Beyoncé has worn pieces from Senegalese brand Tongoro, as she has been previously spotted wearing looks from the brand in South Africa for her Global Citizens Festival earlier in the year.

The Ivorian designer re-purposes cowry shells for intricate headpieces and masks that give an air of power and mystery.
My dream come true today,” designer La Falaise Dion exclaims on Twitter. She then notes that Beyoncé is wearing her LAGBADJA headpiece in the music video.

Meaning “the unknown man” in Yoruba, the face of a lagbadja is usually hidden under a mask, like the famed Nigerian musician with the same name.
We can confidently say Beyoncé is showing her support for African designers and we love it!
