“Osupa” is the Yoruba word for the “moon”.
I am drawn to the metaphor of the moon. It captures for me both the idea of brilliant illumination and cyclic movement.
The ideas of movement and change, migration and displacement are important concepts which more than ever, today affect how we understand our individual and shared identities as human beings and my identity as a Nigerian living in the diaspora.
Born and raised in Nigeria but living and working outside Nigeria, Osupa is a personal blog – a way for me (and hopefully others out there) to stay connected to the Nigerian narrative in an honest and subjective way.
I try to write passionately about my experiences in and out of Nigeria; what works for me, how I see my identity as part of a larger human collective.
Further along the line, I hope Osupa will evolve, creating new collaborations and initiatives.
I hope other people can hop along, contribute and share their experiences and insights.
I am drawn to people who are able to express their creativity in visual art, shapes, structures and storytelling. As a writer and an avid traveller, it is my dream to see the whole of African and the rest of the world. Osupa provides me an opportunity to share some of my passions through my writing, pictures and photographs.
As these things go, my expressions of what I see, feel, hear and think will burst to the surface in a completely subjective way- this is my world but I share it with you.
It would be lovely if you could leave comments about anything which catches your attention from the multitude of fragments which I share with you.
Thanks for visiting.
