JOIN THE ‘#IAM’ MOVEMENT

Hullo Friends..

You gotta stay motivated, keep the year moving with much needed positivity that is why I totally and instantly resonated with this new campaign started by Lagos based Wiz Design Artist James Abinibi tagged the #iAm campaign. There is surely power in fortifying the mind and professing daily affirmations, albeit via visual tools such as these lovely eye-catching #iAm graphics.

The #iAm icon carries within it the African Spirit. The motifs are a representation of our diverse culture and the different elements represent creativity in the authentic African culture.
The #iAm Campaign is aimed at promoting a self motivating attitude among African youths . The average young African is faced with daily challenges enough to criple every aspiration and hopes they have. Yet, we are strong willed and despite all the odds we face we are still ready to put in our best everytime we have an opportunity to. This kind of spirit is what the campaign aims to encourage; our environment does not define us, we can show the world who we really are through our lifestyle, culture and beliefs.
We believe, as Africans – whether male or female, we have the #iAm DNA in our system which enables us to achieve things beyond our presumed capabilities. We are able to create and achieve the moment we set our minds to it. Everyone of us should confidently proclaim this in any way we can; “I am Talent, Culture, Strength, Style, Hope, Love, Awesome… I am everything positive, I am everything I choose to be!”
The #iAm icon carries within it, the African Spirit. The motifs are a representation of our diverse culture and the different elements represent creativity in the authentic African culture.
“I define myself by my thoughts and words. I achieve because I put my mind to it, I am limitless! My Yesterday has nothing on my Tomorrow, I am the Future. Society doesn’t define me, Culture can never hold me back. I am whatever I put my mind to.”

Photos and Haikus I

Light and Love on your Sundays Beautiful People..

Once in a while, I’ll put together a few captivating shots I come across and use my gift of words & poetry to complement them while drawing attention to the work of these wonderful artists/photographers . I’ve always had this nifty idea and with the blog, I can now put it to expression..I tag the ongoing series “Photos & Haikus”

I started writing haikus as a pre-teen up until my post-grad college days at the University of Nottingham, UK. The creativity involved eased those lonely, melancholic moments of the life of an international student 🙂

hai·ku
ˈhīˌko͞o,ˌhīˈko͞o/
noun
Haiku poetry -- scroll about 5/6 of the way down the page to find this

Haikus – I call it a lightweight form of poetry, but its not as lightweight as it seems. It’s actually, mostly full of depth as it takes a lot more creativity/ thought process to put together due to the structural  limitations re-syllables, word count while wanting to maintain depth and meaning as much as possible

So my pictorial muse for today’s post is Daniel Emeka’s work (Digital & Graphic Artist).  Male Model: Daniel Emeka himself, Female Model- Merit Iwute, Photography by Timmy Davies.Art Direction: Daniel Emeka.  And these are 3 picks from his project titled ‘‘THE HUSTLE”

I will let my haiku {for each of the three photos I selected} speak for them.

High heat in Lagos

Pure water like soul music

A cool refresher

She sees the future

through dreamy eyes of beauty

 tomato hue lips

As the sun sets low 

He sees as her eyes drops so

to love or to hold

Hope you enjoyed it. For more of Daniel Emeka’s work. Click here

And  I’ll leave you with this joke 😀

Haiku. Every morning.
