A book of Illustrations that Immortalizes Nollywood legends by Digital Artist Ayooluwa Nihinoluwa
March 10, 2017
We got fascinated by the level of skill and patriotism portrayed in this latest 48-paged e-book by Nihinlola Ayooluwa Elisha. This book, which is available for free download, is an attempt by this brilliant digital artist to immortalize both the living and departed Nollywood legends.
About the project
Nollywood legends is a book designed to immortalize and project the legacies of some selected Nigerian Actors and Actresses. The book is illustrated in cartooned sequences of each of these characters beautifully niched and portrayed in their cultural context; which also entails a brief history and influence of the characters.
The book illustrates legends like Pete Edochie, Kanayo O. Kanayo, to Sola Sobowale (who recently reminded us of how much of a legend she is by her brilliant performance in the hit movie “The Wedding Party”), to the Late Bukky Ajayi and many more.
Ayooluwa said the project is mainly targeted at young people who think Nollywood begins and ends with performers like O.C Ukeje and Adesua Etomi – and hopes that this enlightens them a bit.
