It has been over two months since the debut of my first multimedia installation took place at White Space in Ikoyi, Lagos and the experience still feels unreal. One minute you are neck deep in planning and the next you are uninstalling and preparing for the next city. Here are some photo highlights from the […]
It would be my absolute pleasure to invite you to my first ever mixed media installation “Dirty Laundry” supported by Ford Foundation. This installation is an immersive experience interconnecting personal narratives, histories, experiences, and imaginaries as a form of catharsis for me and the viewers. Featuring poems screen printed on canvas hanging from laundry lines, […]
“Reclaiming the Tongue” is a video series curated by journalist and poet, Wana Udobang. For the series, Wana enlisted the help of prolific food bloggers and scholars, Ozoz Sokoh (Kitchen Butterfly), Neema Syovata (Modern African Table) and Iquo Ukoh (1Q Food Platter), to explore the complex ways in which history, geography, memory, colonization, relationships and more, become part of a dish’s recipe.

I recently got to work with Abiola Sobo of Suss productions to put together new visuals for my poem “The Revolution”. This poem came to me at a time when I was deeply in need of affirmation

Though most of my reporting was around agriculture and climate change, I did find sometime in-between to do some fun stuff like going on a coffee tour. This is not […]
Podcasting has been quite the craze for a while. Infact, i have been recommended so many that I have actually lost count. But when I came across Not Another Book Podcast on my timeline, I was momentarily consumed with a tinge of jealousy just because it is many shades of brilliant. Hosted by self […]
I recently got the opportunity to work as one of the producers on the fifth episode of the Mothers of Invention podcast. A podcast that examines feminist solutions to climate change issues. Climate change isn’t an area I have covered very much in my past works so it has been great to learn and tackle […]
