Musician John Blaq was crowned the worst dressed musician at Rema's introduction ceremony which took place on Thursday last week.
And he has spoken out for the first time on why he appeared for the event like that.
He says he had no time to rush home and put on the traditional outfit.
"I had bought a Kanzu for Rema's Introduction but time wasn't on my side. I couldn't go back home to change.
I bought that shirt on my way to Rema's party. I thought it looked smart on me," the singer explains.
He says regrets not putting on a Kanzu. He was denied a chance to perform for the invited guests.
