iamthenublack: Niyi Crown

introduce yourself
Niyi Crown, I’m 19 years old and I am the fashion coordinator of a London based magazine called SUPERSUPER. I am a menswear stylist and I also do a bit of modeling on the side because I love to be in front of the camera as well as behind it.

fav lyric from a song

“Lifestyles of the broke and famous lets you know how crazy this game is…”

“…just last week they wanna see id, now they got you in V.I.P”

They’re both from US Placers by CRS – I feel as though those words were written for me.

what inspires you

I’m inspired by all things new and all things old. I love the idea of pretense and humility raging war within the same soul. Music plays a major role in the things that I do and the way that I do them. I am also obsessed with diamonds and all that glitters.

the nublack philosophy/mantra according to Niyi

I was born into Nigerian aristocracy and was raised to believe that I am greatness incarnate. I know who I am and it’s O.K if the world doesn’t know, as long as they know that I know.

who are your past/present icons and why?

I have many icons, past and present. The things unify them are their drive and ambition, their refusal to give up when people told them they were no good and their acknowledgment of exactly who they are inside.
