#HIGHLIGHT: Nigerian Photographer, Daniel Obasi – ‘Nativity’

It’s not norm for us to feature ladieswear content, but it’s mandatory for us to highlight African talents within the fashion and grooming sector. One such talent is the young Nigerian photographer, Daniel Obasi. Obasi also happens to be a stylist – standard in the fashion universe where the ability to only do one thing is your worst career enemy. Here we feature some of his latest work, a visual poem titled, ‘Nativity’.


“There is a new tune playing out tonight…
We the children have found ourselves scrambling home,
Or we lose sight of the very last moonlight…
Get home safe we bade ourselves, still lingering
In our young hearts the jolly tales the great dying tree spoke…
May we sleep, yet keep these little bits of memory awake”
