[Pics] The Models, Designer, Makeup Artist and Photographer for This Viral Photoshoot are All Nigerian

A photoshoot is going viral, not just because it’s gorgeous, but because it represents Nigerian talent both in front of and behind the lens. The shoot is for Nigerian label Maju and it is a beautiful representation of West African fashion and a peek into what self-supporting black fashion looks like.

Images from the campaign were posted to Maju’s Instagram account, where credit was given to the creative team including director and stylist Fiolakemi Awobotu @fiolakemi_, makeup artist Anita Adetoye @anitabrows, photographer Daniel Sparx @danielsparx and models Powede Laurence @powedelawrence and Olamide Ogundele @olamideogundele.

The images were shared to Twitter, where many expressed pride and amazement at the shoot.

Nigerian Fashion designers, Nigerian photographers, Nigerian models and make up artists are not to be messed with. they aren't here to play.
