17-time Grammy award nominee Anthony Hamilton, will be hitting the stage in a couple of days for the much anticipated Yetu festival.

The soothing sounds of jazz and soul are something I know that we all looking forward to. But some of you might not know that one of the things that makes this great musician pop is his 

That thing is his style and fashion, especially his love for hats. His Instagram page is filled with colourful outfits with his legendary hats and sneakers featuring prominently in his photo and video gallery.

While those two fashion items dominate his style catalog, Hamilton is still impartial to his Rayban sunglasses, his personalized pendant, and his stylish watch.

In an interview with Stacee, Hamilton boldly declared that he was a fashion brand. 

"My style of music brings about a southern flair and a well-traveled family man. And I think that’s reflected in my boots, hats, great quality T-shirts, socks, and underwear," he said during the interview.

What about his Hat? Tell us more, please?

The elegant singer has always featured a hat since he started his musical journey so much so that he has spoken out about creating his own line of hats to show fashion enthusiasts how to properly wear fedoras.

He once wrote about his future business plan on his Instagram with his caption reading, "Wise men wear fly hats. House of Fedora. Coming Soon."

Hamilton's pendant is of St. Augustine who was a Roman African man who was a philosopher and writer. "It stood out to me and kinda reminded me of myself," he explained to Stacee

His classic boots also add to his panache.

"I love a good comfortable boot. From any vintage line or thrift store to All Saints and Varvatos. Comfort is my key style. Summertime, I let the dogs out— flip flops and slippers or a sweet pair of Jordans," he enthused in the same interview.

Hamilton is set to perform on Saturday, July 30th, 2022, at the Carnivore Grounds at the Stanbic Yetu Live in collaboration with Stanbic Bank Kenya and Radio Africa Group.

The singer will be taking the stage with some of Kenya's greatest including Otile Brown, June Gachui, the top soul DJs in the country DJ Pinye, DJ Stylez, and DJ Forest.
