This came to my inbox two days ago about an African makeover show called Style Me. Thanks to our friends at Bella Naija for sharing this with us. I checked out Style Me
website and I must tell I was very impressed with what I saw. Style Me is a Nigerian style makeover show produced by The Cinder Company and presented by Isioma Onochie Aihie
and a resident Style expert. After an exciting search, the resident Style Expert/Style Me co-host for Season 3 is Zainab Ashadu,
an ex-model who has transitioned to a career in styling/image consulting.Season 3 is shown on Silverbird TV in Nigeria on Tuesdays at 7.30PM, it is also currently syndicated on 7 television stations across the nation.In addition, MNet's Africa Magic is currently broadcasting Season 2 of the show on Tuesdays at 6.30PM.
Every episode of Style Me features a style confrontation and makeover of a woman, and sometimes a man who has been nominated either by themselves or friends and relatives for a style enhancement or overhaul!The show is shot over 2 -3 days in the style subjects’ life. The style subject has their current style sense evaluated by the presenters, who pay particular attention to the style subjects’ size, shape and lifestyle. They are encouraged to discard old styles and life habits and are given rules and tips on what style will work for them as well as their daily lives.The style subject is then given 100,000 Naira to shop for a new wardrobe, which is supposed to be in accordance with the rules and tips they have been given. To ensure that they do not stray, the style subjects are chaperoned by a style assistant whose duty it is to offer guidance. Style subjects are taken to hair, skin and make up specialists to be given a thorough makeover and expert advice. They are revealed at the end of the show in their new “looks” and hopefully, boosted confidence levels!

Zainab Ashadu is the co-host/resident stylist for Season 3. Following the footsteps of previous Style Me co-hosts Buki dela Zaria (Season 1) and Ifeoma Williams (Season 2), Zainab will work with the style subjects to overhaul their looks and unveil a more confident and stylish version of themselves after each makeover.
It is anticipated that viewership for the show will be drawn from all geo-political zones of Nigeria.
