    • You say that like you’ve never seen a Nigerian woman with a weave, wig, perm or any other hair piece…

      London Nigerian ladies love to wear their hair in all sorts of ways – including the kinds of ways depicted on the dolls.

      Nicely done, Barbie!

  2. Aww, The dolls are cute. I smiled at all of them and the creativity was cool and seems like it could be joyful to play with. The photo where they are dancing and the money is on their heads is so cool. I wish I could see that in stores near me(Wlamart, Target, Albertsons..etc) Cute customed made clothes, The photographer did a neat job.

  3. I love the purple cloth! The outfits, hair and makeup are on point! I would have loved to have these Barbies to play with when I was younger! I think the photographer captured the essence of a Nigerian wedding very well! I could feel it :)
