The Nigerian creative industry may be at the best form it has ever been that is not to say it doesn’t have areas that needs to work on but it is undergoing a revolution of sorts with a steady influx of young at heart creatives burning with a passion to tell their stories and share their art with the world. From new age musicians who are reinventing the African sound by merging their afrocentricity, identities and contemporary existence into their songs to bloggers who are revamping the digital space and changing how we tell stories and communicate to designers who are making clothes to be more than just things to put on our bodies to the photographers who have gone out of their way to not just capture the best moments but to also ensure it tells a story.
Budding photographer Chuchu Ojekwe is armed with a camera and a passion for photography as he sets capturing some of the most aesthetically pleasing pictures to ever appear on your Instagram feed. With an impressive amount of skill, raw talent and passion, Chuchu Ojekwe has in the past few months of taking photography serious photographed the likes of fashion influencer and TV host Denola Grey amongst several gigs and jobs from brands and events proving how far the dynamic duo, passion and determination, can take you. What keeps Chuchu separate from the crowd and gives him that distinctness needed for every true and badass creative is the unpretentiousness that comes with his pictures and it’s openness which is in certain ways a very direct contrast to the work of many photographers.
