For Us By Us – A Nigerian Independence Day Photoshoot
With Nigerian Independence Day coming up, it’s only right we show out for culture in any way we can. We received a submission from photographer, Temilola, who wanted to construct a “For Us By Us” celebration of Nigeria’s rich culture.
“It is in my heart that I believe that Nigerians are the trendsetters of the west coast (of Africa that is). We are the frontrunners when it comes to music, education, fashion and Jollof rice (this last one is not up for debate). But specifically when it comes to fashion, whether we are in Nigeria or somewhere out in the diaspora our creativity when it comes to fashion cannot be matched.”
