For me it’s such a powerful way of sharing our history and experiences. My work is often rooted around my experiences as a young African. Growing up we are offered such a narrow and stereotyped perspective on Africa, that sort of hinders our progression especially within the creative scene. As an artist the best way for me to help shape our narrative is to step away from those stereotypes and create along the lines of afrofuturism and fantasy.
