Gbola Kupoluyi maybe hard to pronounce for some of you, let me help you;It’s pronounced Gee-Bo–LA. By his name , some of you should be able to guess he is Nigerian because honestly Naija folks have been dominating the scene when it comes to African music and movies– their lingo, style, culture has entered all our homes by now, this should sound familier. If your not familiar, it’s all good … Google is at your fingertips! hehe…
Okay, back to our very first male MixFix Arrest.
Gbola is commonly known as GB for short by his friends. He is currently a student at a local community college at his hometown of San Diego, CA.
The 20-year-old chocolate brother was very pleased to be featured on a blog about fashion, ” I am honored and humbled to be acknowledged for my fashion sense,” he said.
Ever proud of his heritage, the one statement item that caught my eyes on him are his African inspired bracelets, he always has the coolest arm candy! Honestly, it’s fitting for a guy but I too have attempted to bargain it out of his wrist at times!
