I never had the opportunity to meet my grandmother Margaret, aka Mama Kano, from Nigeria. She was born in Onitsha and her father was an Obi, which is a king in Nigeria.
I always feel her moving through me and wanted to create this character (on the back of the hoodie) to honor her memory while celebrating authentic African aesthetics.
Make 'em proud!
