Nigerian dynamo Ramsey Noah is one of Africa’s sexiest men alive but when he showed up at the opening ceremony for the Cameroon International Film Festival (CAMIFF) in Buea, on April 25, all hell let loose!
The top Nollywood star arrived the red carpet event in a pair of short blue jeans, a rumple t-shirt and a face cap while others showed up in ball gowns and tuxedos.

Fans immediate jumped on social media slamming the Nigerian hunk for “disrespecting” the dress code for the event.
One fan wrote, “Is it me or is Ramsey Noah’s outfit totally out of place?”. Another followed with, “He [Ramsey Noah] thinks we do not know fashion?” Another added, “He looks like he just came from a beach or a mountain tour.” Another said, “Lead by example.”
However, defending his look on the first day of CAMIFF, Noah told DECODED TV his look was in deed right for the event.
“It’s a film festival not an award show,” Noah said. “I knew I had to move around a lot, greet and meet people and network… so I didn’t think I was wrong with what I chose to wear,” he continued.
After receiving serious backlash for his looks on Day one of the festival, the actor played safe for the rest of the six-day event wearing what many later considered “appropriate”.
