I was awarded the Future Awards Africa 2018 Prize for Creativity last night @tfaafrica. It was quite a shock. I didn't think I had a chance in hell of winning, and I had planned to stay home and catch up on some anime. I'd like to thank everyone who consistently supports my practice @relegallery @artyrama @staceyravvero @jesscastellote @lolashoneyin to name a few. I'm incredibly grateful I get to wake up every day and make art. It's a privilege and a responsibility I do not take lightly. It was an honour to be grouped with amazing artists who are doing fabulous work, my fellow nominees @kennwadiogbu , @ayogu.kingsley , @muslimahanie, @ucheugo…. You guys are the real mvps. I think this is a pretty good way to wrap up the year. 😁😄 #TFAA2018 #NigeriasNewTribe

Soooooo while I was walking up to the stage I was trying to gather my thoughts. Then i get to the mic and they disappeared 😱. I remember telling @bolanle “I don’t get nervous. What is this feeling?” Let’s just say I was rendered a little speechless. I hardly find time to celebrate my wins because I’m always looking for the next one. It’s a terrible habit and I’m working on it 🤦🏽‍♀️ – I really wanted to address those coming behind me but it slipped. I am a living example that with hard work, passion and faith that you can achieve that which you never planned for. You too can win by going against the grain. You can win by saying “no” and holding your spirit of excellence. You can win by refusing to shift your moral compass and keeping your standards when they ask you to throw it away . It’s ok to be the good girl, the righteous girl, the girl with just a BIG God and nothing else. – I am truly living my purpose doing what I love and I pray come 2019 that I can do more to help others do the same. I have the best family and supporters who scream for me even when I’ve lost my voice. Thank you all so much for riding this wave with me! P.S I hate long captions too but you’ll have to forgive me ❤️ – #tfaa2018 #actress #happychild
