1. Those infamous spinning dollar belt buckles:

You had to spin it before entering into a room.

2. The painfully tacky LED belts:

It was the ultimate swag that time sha.

3. Studded belts that are trying to resurrect by force, but our God is stronger.

Just stay dead, bruh.

4. That time there were more Ama Kip Kip shirts in Nigeria than Nigerians.

Kai! They were EVERYWHERE.

5. See ehn, if you ever owned this shirt, only God can adequately judge you.

The designs were just so extra.
