In the wake of the world’s fascination with the British monarchy, it is interesting to note that Africa has had a sustained monarchy system. Although the kings and rulers don’t wield the kind of power and influence they did prior to the advent of colonialism, it’s interesting to see that they still exist and modernization has not completely eroded their presence or relevance.
Nigerian photographer George Osodi sought to showcase the existing monarchs of Nigeria with his amazing collection of photos which will be exhibited in London later this year. As reported by Daily Mail Online, George’s collection called ‘Kings of Nigeria‘ “is due to be exhibited at London’s Bermondsey Project in October.”
Check out some of the photos here and keep it locked to BellaNaija for more information on this amazing photographer and the inspiration behind this project.
