Meet Trendy Rail The Face Behind Sarkodie’s Looks

“Fashion they say is what you buy, but the style is what you do with it”. For the past four years, one amazing lady has been doing magic in creating the visual style and appearance of the most decorated rapper in Africa – Sarkodie and some other international acts and has made a business out of it.

Ghanaian born, but the UK raised and based Nana Odum, popularly known as TrendyRail, a full-time stylist whose passion got flared up by happenstance during her five years’ work experience as a Visual Merchandiser. Her love for styling has now led to building a business out of her passion.

The now pro stylist who started off in 2014, but branded properly to position herself well in 2015 traced her creativity to her bloodline, saying, almost everyone in her family is creative in some sort of way. To oust the fear of being an ordinary stylist, TrendyRail goes out of her way to make her style have a perfect blend of antiquity while the essential 21st ubiquitous looks are not downplayed.

TrendyRail since the inception of her rocky journey to becoming an accepted name in the styling, space have had her ups and downs, but certainly, styling an artist you don’t like seemed like the height of the rock right. That’s how she met her now cash cow client, Sarkodie.

“I got a call to Style Sarkodie by a director I had previously worked with. Since I wasn’t really a fan of his music, I was a little on the edge. It was more like emotions v’s Money.” She said with a smile. “I obviously choose money! But imagine being on set and you are there to style somebody you don’t like? It was soo funny because he noticed it too. To cut a long story short, he was so fun to be around and my opinion completely changed. He then became my client after I styled him for “Tonga – Joey B Ft Sarkodie.” Sark is more or less my Big brother now.” Shared by TrendyReail on her first working experience with Sarkodie.

The daring stylist who has over the years worked with the likes of Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Wande Coal, Koredo Bello, Kuami Eugene, Kidi and MzVee has changed the face of artistic looks and artiste appearance. She is poised on expanding her territories, but faced with some impervious; understanding the need for a stylist by arts, funds as well as the will to stand out.

Responding to why she has not worked with more Ghanaian celebrities, she said. “This answer might rub some people the wrong way, but I must be honest! It will be a dream come true to have a few clients in Ghana but I’ve come to realize that Ghanaians love luxury, but the majority of them doesn’t want to pay for that luxury. Some are under the impression that “Tagging you” will bring you numbers on social media, but I’m sorry, these numbers on social media does not bring money to my table.”

She continued saying, “I’ve had meetings with a few, but I feel like they just don’t get the essence of it. Branding is the foundation of every creative, so if you don’t take it seriously you will definitely become mediocre. I prefer one client who understands and knows the worth of their brand. This type of client is worth my time and I will be more than happy to invest my creativity.”

TrendyRail is open to working with other artists on the continent if approached with a good deal. Be on the lookout for her new creations which will soon be released. Check our some of her works below.

Maroon 5’s smash hit featuring Cardi B, “Girls Like You,” caught a lot of attention for its cameo-filled nature, featuring the likes of Camila Cabello, Ellen DeGeneres, Gal Gadot, Jennifer Lopez, Behati Prinsloo and more.

Not only did the song skyrocket in popularity (reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100), so did the video. In less than 10 months, the music video surpassed 2 billion YouTube views.

“I have two young daughters, and to think about them being mistreated at all — ever — made my blood boil,” Adam Levine recently told Variety of the tune. “So we went for it because I felt that as long as I stayed close to my heart with this concept, I could never go wrong. … In the video, I was doing it for my kids and my wife. If anyone doesn’t understand the intentions, f— ’em.”

“Worthless Man, Imbecile” : Tonto Dikeh Throws Shade At Her Ex-Husband

Published

Tonto Dikeh’s has thrown shade at whom many believe is her ex-husband, Churchill Oladunni.

She took to Instagram yesterday to write different cryptic posts which included the statement “A Tonto Dikeh’s has thrown shade at whom many believe is her ex-husband, Churchill Oladunni.

She took to Instagram yesterday to write different cryptic posts which included the statement “A worthless man is always a worthless man”.

This comes after he granted an interview, debunking her claims that he squatted with her when they started dating.

He said;

You mean squatting? This is ridiculous. Before I met the Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, I was already one of the most successful young millionaires in Africa.

I met her at a nightclub, during my brother’s birthday party in 2014 and it was about the same time I acquired the latest Benz cars. Three months after we met, she got pregnant.

I have never really stayed in Nigeria for too long, because I do business in Ghana, although I have an office at Ikoyi. She visited me in Ghana several times and when she broke the news of her pregnancy three months into the relationship, I decided to visit her in Nigeria. I had to visit her often, because she was carrying my child.

I have never squatted or lived with her and the only time we stayed together was after the birth of my son, which came with the approval of her parents, after I had completely satisfied the traditional requirements for her dowry.

I flew her to the United States to deliver my child in one of the best hospitals in America.

She stayed at my family house in London few months after delivery, before she returned to Nigeria. On her arrival, I had already prepared a well-furnished exquisite apartment for us – this was the first and only times we lived together until the divorce. We only lived together for six months.

Still on the issue of squatting, it will interest you to know that Tonto will never marry or date a man who lacks prospects or is unsuccessful. She likes to live the life. We broke up in 2016 at a house I newly acquired for my mother in Lekki, Lagos State.
Our marriage was plagued with several frivolous claims of falsity, ranging from domestic violence to false allegations and all what not. I never laid my hands on her. I have never done that in my life before. She made up those things to discredit my philanthropic works. I am from a proper disciplined Yoruba home.
