African Lens: Volume 2 covers (Motherland Cover and Diaspora Cover)

With volume 2, I designed two covers, Motherland cover (representing African photographers in their homeland) and Diaspora cover (representing African photographers in the diaspora)

Motherland cover features a beautiful nostalgic portrait by Ivorian and Burkinabé photographer Samuel OueDraogo.

Diaspora cover features a mesmerizing portrait by Nigerian born, NewYork-based photographer Emmanuel Afolabi

Very excited to share with you all the final project. African Lens 2 will be released this summer. Stay tuned.

Love + Light

Nigerian Student Solves 30 Year Old Math Equation and Breaks Academic Record at Japanese University

Nigerian student Ufot Ekong has just become the first Nigerian to earn a “First Class Degree” and become the best overall student at Tokai University in Tokyo, Japan since 1965! 

The last time anyone graduated with a grade point average similar to Ufot Ekong was over 50 years ago. Ufot, who put himself through school by working two jobs has won many other academic awards at the university; totaling to about six awards. On top of all his academic excellence, Ufot also solved a 30 year old outstanding mathematical equation in his first semester! 

Ufot speaks English, Yoruba, French and Japanese. 

Now that’s young, brilliant and black at it’s FINEST!

I’ve been told they’ve been discussing how to make Wakanda look and feel “authentic” and that all she has to do at this point is accept the job!
