John Boyega served us a dose of Nigerian swagger at the European premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in London and we just can’t get enough!

The British-Nigerian actor, on Wednesday, decided to ditch the usual suit and tie for a traditional blue agbada fit with very delicate gold embroidery and a cap.

Boyega, who plays Finn in the sci-fi/fantasy movie, was joined by his family who also adorably wore matching outfits.

His flawless look was widely received with a positive response on social media.

“For a Nigerian kid raised on Star Wars, this means everything to me. Representation matters. Thank you,” someone wrote.

“Nigerians are always extra, they look good on their native wear,” another said.

Take a look at some photos of Boyega at the premiere below. How did he look?
