A Lady On A Mission To End Baldness! November 14, 2020 – Posted in: Beauty, Showcase, Women

I started balding badly due to the stress at work . Over time, I noticed the centre of my head was losing hair. I went to the hair store and bought the products I could find. Still, I was still curious to get products here in the United States that can grow hair and also contain natural ingredients such as herbs and essential oils. It was in the process of my curiousity I made further…

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…

FROM A MAKEUP ARTIST TO A DUCHESS OF DISGUISE! September 19, 2020 – Posted in: Arts, Showcase

 My journey into beauty and imitation makeup started about five years ago. It was spontaneous because I have always being artistic and very creative. It is more of a talent which I have been able to harness over the years. In time, some people thought my creativity was born out of boredom, whereas, others took me seriously right from the onset. I set out to become a full time professional makeup artist though I am…

PERFECTLY COMBINING ARTS AND MEDICINE September 12, 2020 – Posted in: Arts, Showcase

I remember the memories of drawing cartoon characters, especially Mickey Mouse and Popeye. I was fond of using jumbo markers to create designs in my school exercise books. Sometimes, I could be restless to the extent that I have to look for any available paper to express myself. I loved gumming papers together to create collages and designs. Surprisingly, I didn’t really pay attention to this creative side of me neither does my parents do.…

Amplifying Black Voices August 10, 2020 – Posted in: photography, Showcase

I wanted to see more of myself. Not necessary myself as a person, but people who share some similarities with me in terms of our origin. My aim has always been to create a space for more black people to be seen. Over the years, I noticed that the black colour was relegated behind the scene and noticeably absent in many contents created in the media. With that in mind, I saw a huge need…

Illustrations And Visuals…Twice As nice! August 9, 2020 – Posted in: Arts, Showcase

The path I chose has brought me a lot of peace. It was something I genuinely enjoy doing. There were no push backs and hitches anytime I am engrossed in it. After a careful thought of what I wanted to do with my life, I came to a conclusion I might actually do this art thing for a very long time or for the rest of my life. Art was something I found myself doing…

DOCTOR OF INTERRUPTIONS August 8, 2020 – Posted in: photography, Showcase

I am a pharmacist but on the other hand, photography is an escape. It is one of those subtle ways to keep my sanity. It all started when in I was in college. I belonged to a group that required me to take photos. From there, I saw myself taking pictures of anything I considered interesting and fascinating including my car. I would go ahead and blog about it. It was very satisfying. In time,…

A FEMALE BEAST OF THE LENS August 6, 2020 – Posted in: photography, Showcase

In December 2016, I had a horrible incident. After that horrendous incident, I lost my voice. When I mean I lost my voice, I mean my throat was closed for almost eight months to the extent I could not speak.  Life for me at that point felt like I was going around the world in my own head. In time, I needed to come out of my shell. Little by little, I looked for a…

Out of this world! July 29, 2020 – Posted in: Arts, Showcase

Take it or leave it, I have always been super creative since I was born. I started drawing when I was seven. I drew a lot of cartoon characters, especially from the Super Strikers and Cartoon network comic series. I didn’t really pay much attention to it till I got into secondary school. In year 9, my Fine Art teacher made me fall in love with it because he gave students room for self expression…
