Nigerian poet Chika Jones celebrated his birthday on September 27th and shared a set of stunning photos on instagram. His look was styled by his wife Esther Jones and photographed by Imogirie Gaston.

Chika looked dapper in a mauve suit as well as in a more casual black and white striped shorts set. Esther makes an appearance as well, in a matching mauve gown to compliment the celebrant. Chika shouts out Soles N Shades, a Nigerian fashion leather goods and accessories brand, for his favorite pair of slippers.

Chika Jones is a poet, writer, and alumnus of the British Council’s 2017 Young Critics’ Programme. You can listen to live readings of his poems on Instagram and Youtube. His work has been published in Kalahari Review and Praxis Magazine. You can also find his work on his website.

Happy Belated Birthday from the Brittle Paper team!
