‘IKU’Year: 2012Media: PencilDimensions: A3 sizeIku is a story about a boy who was banished from his village with his motherbecause he was a twin. Twins were seen as a sign of misfortune and sorrow in theYoruba tradition. Although his brother died in the Dark forest, he survived but hismother sold him off to the evil one, Esu, as she feared he might die as well. Yearslater, Esu came to claim the soul of the young boy and turned him into animmortal, cursed to roam the earth raining judgement on the wicked.My greatest ambition is to transform the image of Africa by producing originallyAfrican movies and animations to International quality hence letting the worldknow that there is more to Africa than what they see in the media.
