George Amponsah's The Importance of Being Elegant documents a subculture of African men who spend their free time acquiring the latest in high fashion, and then engaging in regular dress-up fashion competitions. The recognized leader of this group is Papa Wemba, a singer whose devotion to European designers forms the basis of the group's ideology.
