The three rules of supper culture are dress, hair, and scent.
In the third episode of the Flexajat series, Sexikas-Sukla aka Luay “Vicky” Konsi learns about the snake charmer culture of the Congo.
For the enthusiasts, which is as follows:
– Style police, army, special forces of King-Kongs… guys who dress so cool that when you’re next to them, you don’t want to be in the same room!
What is it about?
The word means “atmosphere maker, company of elegant people”, introduces Konci. It is derived from the French slang word sepe. Again, it is an abbreviation of French words, which roughly translate to “club of mood makers and elegant people”.
The subculture originated in Brazzaville and Kinshasa, i.e. the capitals of the Republic of the Congo and the Democratic Republic of the Congo respectively, and its roots go back to the 1920s. Traditionally, sappers have been men, but women have increasingly joined the hobby as well.
, [Sape] Meaning the clothes and the style of the dress as well as the grandeur of the dress, Konsi explains.
Finnish-Congolese Gelotelli ang Yuma, Gelotelli for short, appears in the episode as Finland’s official snake expert.
– Whatever I do, I always do it with style, says Zellotelli.
In Sapeur style, it is necessary not only to dress stylishly, for example in a short jacket, straight trousers and beautiful leather shoes, but also to keep this elegance – well, with style.
Zellotelli lists three essential Saipur rules:
First is the dressing. But you don’t have to wear a shirt to dress well. You can look cool even on a small budget. Second is: hair always mint! The third is that you like to smell good.
– If you mess with one of these, you mess with them all, he says as a warning.
For Gelotelli, style has come as a blood legacy.
– I grew up in an environment where you saw uncles, uncles and fathers… It’s love for that fabric!
Gelotelli presents Conci with a series of supper styles one after the other. Quality brands from Louis Vuitton to Gantt and Balmain are in the news.
Then he also introduces the way of carrying these precious clothes – Supper Walk.
There are also several varieties: light drag, casual front, “side lay”, wide stance, and swinging kicks.
All the same, even if the outfits are beautiful and the trends are inflated, the stylists say in one voice that it is not about arrogance, but “this is a lifestyle”.
Flexing isn’t always about the money. Instead, neatness and finding your own style are things that can take you far. But perhaps the most important thing is to enjoy life, adventure and forget unnecessary extortion, the Sexikas-Sukla line.
Flexjaat on MTV on Tuesdays and on MTV SAB on Sundays at 18:30. The program can also be seen on Katsomo and Sea More.
