dating back as far as 721 b.c. . being one of the oldest kingdoms in the entire africa our people were here. during the times of crisis. i see as an opportunity the more nicky is only an opportunity to serve my people for example during the west of the crisis when the niger delta was a very very hot bed i personally went to the greeks i knew the it was a very dangerous thing to do but i will never forget the shock of the niger delta boys that the king of war would come to the creeks and try to build some form of harmony. we are all representation of them as a whole. we are all like palais riis veins blood vessels
1:48 am
if any part of the world is sick then we as the world are sick. the world is over 70 percent water and surely the human body is equally 70 percent water so i think in that tries to show us something. we cannot separate ourselves from each other. to put something in there to rejoin us in the up in still being us what it is to be. so many where companies are present in their soul and then once in a while would make a mistake on the other spilled into the. sometimes taken up sometimes is left. of young men bindo of those that feel that they don't really have any means of survival and it is easier for them to break into by applying state oil refining to

1:53 am
just one of the wonderful throwback to. the issue of identity subjugation i mean it's not angry it's not it's aggressive and it's so relevant so it's i don't know i think. we have to really take the time to plan this exhibition to plunder the show so that we show it in the best possible way so that we can also engage not just the crowd or the culture of the crowd as a way of the more we should be able to engage the younger generation of people who really want to get to understand where we're coming from as a nation all the things we've lost. let me look at the just the o'neill he said looking very simple and straight in the same room you are all free and a new identity. you're seeing them displaced you see in them subjugated you know
1:54 am
we've read about these and i strip books but i have a compilation. of because i'm in a dignified manner so based on the council president well. you know sort of because this is one of my favorite protrudes a plan to have them that really didn't blow. he which. came when you see the hunger and long and very elegant. i really don't wince for the time. sitting at sites around sorry. kings of nigeria and i'm thrilled to say that for talk of a georgia study is here with us so let's not visible with the monarchs exhibition
1:55 am
because in the film it talked about how you wanted to take the exhibition global you were going to start in lagos what happened how did it go. you know. very different as well but it was wanting to show. the projects in the spaces you feel it's had the desired effect of of increasing people's understanding i am a political artist so the idea of visibility for that for me it's to critique balance with people from diverse cultural backgrounds and religion in the country would see them so of us are unified people one of the sentence of a part because we've heard that issues quite a lot the current situation in nigeria unfortunately when we see it on the news we're hearing about conflicts. but she was she documented as well is it tough for you as a nigerian to see that picture of the world painted so immense where is its reality
1:56 am
we have a reported to the. wish country that sticks kill for its populace and develops a country if only we have leadership that wants to be serious attempts of. the its allies well from. how they're able to keep people united in the irrespective of. culture about gran allegedly come from tell me about your new project orphans of boko haram i mean that's a powerful title in itself and again unfortunate boko haram is another thing which we hear about a lot with kids and with nigeria the book or on phenomenon it's another such story from the nigeria there is this class of people who people don't talk much about stuff actually i couldn't be the victims of book or. yeah
1:57 am
but of them a kid's parents of been killed in the course of militancy and conflicts. they have kids who've lost their parents some died as is a bonding of some died while refusing to become members of a coram or things like that for me it's to create. strong visual awareness that probably will. influence the people in authority to to make a change in the. i think that's very possibility honestly i really you know if you have kids. around in various homes not people taking care of and then i have these images of them in no saying that these kids need to go to school they need attention they just had a lot of parents you know you need to be loved and they need to be cherished you
