Chidera Muoka, the creative being the powerful ‘I AM’ series, is out with a new project.
#MoreThanInkAndLocs is a creative reaction which aims to debunk the Nigerian Police statement in a BBC Pidgin article that, “tattoos and dreadlocks dey strange to our culture.” Through this project, she is addressing society’s bias against appearances which are considered to be deviations from the “norm”. Her belief is that our value and relevance are more than the symbols on our body and the style we wear our hair.
Based on this, she reached out to a couple of outstanding individuals leading their industries to share their narrative and show the world why they are #MoreThanInkAndLocs.
This project was done in collaboration with Niyi Okeowo and Kayode Idowu.
In the next couple of videos, they will be featuring Funfere Koroye, Lanre Masha, Tenny Karim, Bankole Oluwafemi, Jumoke Tychus, Amanda Iheme, Edwin Okolo, and Ade Balogun.
