Barely a week after the release of his debut project Cray Cray, Crayon was performing in Port Harcourt and the reception to his songs awed the youngster. “People were going crazy for ‘So Fine’ and ‘Gock am’,” Crayon recalls excitedly in a WhatsApp voice note. “I was over the moon and the energy was so infectious. It was spiritual and I loved it.”

The music of Crayon is very communal. It’s the sound of people roaring an upbeat chorus or moving to the similarly paced beat. When the artist in 2019 signed to Don Jazzy’s record imprint which has housed Afro Pop icons like Tiwa Savage and Dr. Sid, it sparked celebration within the Lagos … Read the rest

She worked quickly and loosely, producing a sense of the whole animal rather than a detailed drawing. She concerned herself with the large shapes. She used the point of the pencil to emphasize some parts. All her lines are gentle and curving. She also incorporated the rough texture of the paper surface.
