Happy Easter everyone, I am glad you are reading once again from the scrolls of the discovered. Thanks for always reading and the comments garnered here weekly, I am deeply appreciative. So this week, the gods of fashion and accessories brought this one to me via a post on Instagram ”actually I read a post few weeks back on his birthday”, I read and wasn’t really astounded till I met this wonderful individual at his workspace and was sold  just by his impeccable penchant for looking and making you look good. Meet Sola “Flip the Preach” Balogun. Adesola Balogun was born in the early 1980s in Lagos where he grew up in a family of six. An alumnus of The Federal University of Technology, Akure where he graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Urban and Regional Planning, he always had a creative disposition and a passion for expressing himself through the arts.

The small business has since evolved into Outspok'n, a bespoke tailoring brand which has styled and made outfits for individuals from different walks of life, captains of industries and celebrities and which he serves as the creative director.

    Great company, great designs. When you wear a creation from Outspoken, you immediately feel the difference. In the same way an exoskeleton suit enhances you, Outspoken creations immediately make you feel more powerful and confident.
