As I write this, I’m feeling like Davido and Mayorkun in "I Got A Friend". Appreciating a set of people that literally saved my life. Let me tell you about my friends on the coast
Responsive Eye by the self taught visual artist, Olorunyemi Kolapo. Widely known as Kolapo Kingdiah (@Kingdiah on Instagram), he is a graduate of pure and applied physics and this collection was highly influenced by physics theories. This concept strikes you the moment you walk into Dolapo Obats spacious and picturesque gallery in Abuja; even before registering, you are first welcomed in by the "AWELEWA SERIES", it expresses the Law Of Thermal Expansivity and how ladies long (he used african women) to always look ever young- its a double entendre for Longa Throat and heat causing a body to increase in size/length.
So we conquered Farin Ruwa Waterfalls located in a village called Messenge, Wamba L.G.A, Nasarawa State.

All the 5 people that came for the get together called when they got there to be sure that this was really the place.
Chasing Gurara Waterfalls Again Legends have it that the second time's a charm or was it the third time. Visiting Gurara Waterfalls again was definitely alluring, the first time was a movie but it felt dangerously different this time. Spontaneity is my default state and so, I naturally gear towards solo trips rather than organized... Continue Reading →
