Sip and Paint: The fun route to arts and therapy January 23, 2021 – Posted in: Arts, Showcase

The sip and paint concept has been alive for almost a decade in the United States. I have been to several sessions and really enjoyed the atmosphere and how therapeutic it is! During the covid-19 lockdown in Lagos, I began to visualise it.  The picture of the concept began to take a form and I began putting together something beneficial to help Nigeria and Nigerians in a time of distress. Honestly, the reception to the…

Denye Ayah, the travel aficionado! – Posted in: Travel

As much as I’d love to think travelling and experiencing different cultures was my idea. I grew up wanting to be my father. He’s been virtually everywhere. So, when I got the opportunity to travel, I found myself following his footsteps and realized I loved it! As much as I have made some money off travelling and have gotten sponsored by an airline but I’d rather have it as a hobby for now. One of…

Revving Up your food, plates and palates! January 10, 2021 – Posted in: Food, Showcase

One day, I woke up and got fed up as an office manager. I became fed up with the routine job I had done over the years. 9-5 had suddenly become boring. I knew I was tired and needed something different that I could call my own. I resigned. At first, I gave beauty and fashion a deep thought because I have knowledge of makeup and fashion. Still not sure what exactly I wanted, I…

THE EXPRESSIONIST HANDS OF UNYIME January 3, 2021 – Posted in: Arts, Showcase

I was met with cheers, eyes of admiration and hands clapping at what they saw. The heavy applause alone was enough to build anyone’s confidence. An onlooker would be sure that something remarkable had happened in my school that resulted into an outburst of cheers and admiration by the students and teachers. Earlier that week, I got a book from a friend and decided to draw the characters in the book. The book was “My…

SLAY, SWAG, SALIVATE AND SAVOUR! December 18, 2020 – Posted in: Food, Showcase

You love yummy pictures of food, right? They make you suddenly go hungry and salivate? You are not wrong anyway. Unknowingly to a lot of people, behind every yummy and tasty looking picture of food that you see, there is lots of tremendous work done behind the scene. The life of a food artist requires dealing with inanimate objects that can also take up a life of their own and slay in pictures quite beyond…

THE YOUNG AND THE CREATIVE December 5, 2020 – Posted in: photography, Showcase

It all started in my secondary school days. Those were the days when Nokia 6212 was still trendy and the in-thing. So, I remember taking pictures of myself and my classroom with that phone. It was a simple phone though, but the pictures were quite outstanding to me. In 2015, I went for a computer training to learn digital printing, word art, Ms Word, Corel draw, graphic designs and e-flyers. There, I discovered a treasure…

DEAR BEAUTIFUL GIRL November 10, 2020 – Posted in: Inside Life

Circa – 2018 Dear beautiful girl, My name is Onyinye. I am not 22. I’m not 23. I’m not even 24. Rumour has it that some ladies lie about their age but in my own case, reverse is the case. I see rolling of eyes, I see endless laughter, I see funny smiles – all because I disclosed my age. During the just concluded world cup, a young chap came my way trying to be…

FOR THE LOVE OF SHOOTING THEM YOUNG! November 1, 2020 – Posted in: photography, Showcase

My resignation as a banker came as a shock to everyone around me. There was this yearning in me to do something I really enjoyed. I wanted something I could put in my best and become distinguished in. The funny thing was that despite the fact I resigned, I was still not very sure of what exactly I wanted. Around that time, I also lost my father. It was a difficult period in my life.…

NOLLYWOOD’S MAN OF WEAPONS September 20, 2020 – Posted in: Arts, Showcase

The very first time I gave a shot to the idea of providing weapon in a movie, I had never gone back since then. My first weapon prop was made with hundred percent plastazote foam and it turned out quite well. Funnily, I did not start off in the movie industry as a provider of weapons. My journey started off as a special effects makeup artist (which I still do), before the switch.  The idea…
