We had the pleasure of working closely with WeTransfer and their editorial platform This Works, and creative network The Dots, on their project Championing Diversity, where they selected 8 creative leaders of today (A Nasty Boy being one of them amongst others such as Tea Uglow from Google Creative Labs and filmmaker Matt Lambert, etc) to nominate the next generation of creative talents working in our space.
Being a curator on this project, it was important A Nasty Boy nominated a young Nigerian creative in our space who we genuinely believe to be promising and revolutionary, and yet making room for diversity and inclusion through their craft.
Daniel Obasi, a Nigerian Stylist and Visual Curator, was our standout nomination. We nominated Mr Obasi for many reasons, some of which are, the powerful and provoking emotions his work command while speaking in volume to conversations around gender, sexuality and fashion: His work continues to broaden the definition of a Nigerian man and speaks greatly to gender and its politics through fashion.
We’re excited to see Daniel enjoy such global recognition courtesy this project for his contributions to the arts here in Nigeria. Today, his name sits elegantly amongst other equally talented creatives from across the globe who are causing change through their works.
Many thanks to WeTransfer and The Dots for having us as a curator on this wonderful project. It feels good being a part of something positive and inspiring.
