SISI: 6 brands Beyoncé Wore at the 2018 Global Citizen Festival


Last year was an amazing year for African fashion and it was rounded off by Queen B showcasing some of the best designers from the continent during her visit to South Africa for the Global Citizens Festival picked by her stylist Zerina Akers.


Beyoncé posted a series of pictures from her trip to her Instagram page with a caption of appreciation to the brands;
