This is a young alternative who’s quirks and eccentric art transmutes visual artistry and fashion. His fashion and creative brand ‘BLOKE NG’ churns out arts and wearable products in a way that depicts the Afrocentric in a sacred and precious light.

With a stunning showcase at LFW 2018 and being the 2018 winner of ALARA awards, Faith’s 2019 contains more exploratory and experimental knitwears and creative fashion designs for the alté kids of Africa.

Another musician with mad vocals! It’s unclear if he should be identified as Alte, his instrumentals definitely diverge from the conventional Nigerian sound, however, his lyrics are very relatable. Nonetheless, he’s a promising talent.

His hit song with Blaqbonez, “Mamiwota” and his collaboration with Fireboy DML on “Sing” still send shivers down the spines of music lovers across the globe. We expect many more singles from him this year, as his Instagram story posts show, and who knows, he may surprise us and drop his first body of work, fingers crossed.
