"The beauty of an African woman which speaks on the power and beauty of an African Woman has been collected by @MLBinWA. Thank you for believing in me and supporting me ♥️✨✨ I’m very grateful!!"
When Legit.ng contacted her for a comment on the sale, said she did the work in collaboration with talented editor, Lucas Ugonna. She explained the idea behind the photo:
"The work is centered on the African woman as a result of the misconceptions behind the African woman regarding her skin color, hair and contributions to society.
"The piece also seeks to change the narrative of the African woman. It highlights the contributions of African women in the society despite patriarchy being predominant in Africa and to tell the world that the African woman is much more than family and her bodily endowment."
NFTs have become a goldmine for talented artists and photographers and there has been a surge in sales by young people who have taken advantage of it.
