Nu Year Nu Me

Nu, from Nutella, get it? Considering I always pronounce it nuh-tella. Since, I’m in this blog post as a nutella. And the first art work of 2017. I didn’t even do a mistake of writing 2016 and erasing it to 7.


Self Portraiture with Nutella

First post of this year! I do not normally really ‘celebrate’ new year because I don’t like labelling 2017 as a year of something something, I want my whole life that I have to live well to be of something something. I am eternally grateful for each and everyday, Al hamdulilah.

A lot of things happened in 2016 that I didn’t plan for! Hijarbie and then my food art that started gaining more attention. According to this instagram best 9 photos, it pretty much summed up the year and the brands I worked with including, Nestle (maggi), Dominos and Cold Stone (and discovered the toppings I will forever order), my Guardian Life cover, whoop! and The Ogbono art work that won me the Rele and Samsung art competition. It was pretty eventful and at some point, If you noticed, I went on a break. I cannot come and die.

Looking forward to this year and what it has in store and most importantly, the love and mercy of Allah. Honestly, I was forced to just start posting content again due to this announcement I have to make, *drum roll****

I’m giving a TED Talk! In sha Allah.

If you have an idea of what you’d like me to add to this talk, let me know while offer lasts. I’m pretty excited about it and hope Beyonce can use me in her music video, that is not even weird at all.

That’s pretty much it.

See you soon!
