This is being aware that the media you create helps shape the minds of many viewers and society as a whole. Especially the very impressionable minds of young ones.

God bless Sesame Street.

This brings tears to my eyes.

I have never questioned my identity as an African woman. Being a woman has always been foremost in my consciousness. It has never been African + Woman. I always took the “Africanness” as a given; not needing pampering or reminding or nurturing.

I am African.

I gravitate towards folklore, oral historians, ripe mangoes, cocoa and palm kernels. I look out for patterns in my everyday life, in artwork, in my photography because my Africaness connects with the patterns in Aso-Oke, Ankara and Woodin. I need maggi in my lasagne and crayfish in my okra. I have to boil my plantain in its skin and steam my beans in banana leafs. My existence is wrapped in the essence of Africa- toil, triumph, exuberance, richness and hope.

When I was a child, I noticed that all the adult women I knew had straight hair. My hair was always in cornrows that refused to stay neat. It was a huge curly mass that defied every attempt at taming. I thought you got straight hair when you became an adult, and so I wanted to become an adult quickly. I wanted to look like my mother, my aunts and my teachers. I got straight hair at age 8- in a chair, by a relaxer that burnt my scalp, ears and forehead. I continued getting perms till I turned 23. One day, I walked into a salon and had my straight, shoulder length hair chopped off. I had no consciousness of this being a return to my “Africanness.” It just felt comfortable and natural to maintain my hair the way it comes out of my scalp- coily, curly, wavy and sometimes straight. However, people attributed my short hair to valour. I don’t understand that. I have never understood why people choose conformity over authenticity.

Zanerobe : Styled by Street Etiquette 001 - L.A 

About two weeks we went on the road with our Aussie brothers, Zanerobe most notable for their sureshot pants (joggers) with a super laid back style between casual and formal. We traveled from LA, Portland and finally Seattle on a three city shoot with clothes from their monochrome collection

ABOUT
I have been carved out to resemble your imperfections..
I love films, i love reading, I like to draw, I love writing (Haruki Murakami is the word), I love pulling off pranks and most of all I love tragedy and drama.
Coconuts, grapes and bananas are the best things in this world. I hope we can get along,
I do float like a butterfly but I am likely to sting like a bee...
