ABOUT DESIGN

This is a story about how Yoruba culture struggles to live in its own way, This is a story about how the British try to shape another country in the way they are proud of: “we bring Africa freedom”. But what is freedom mean to people here? One cultural is plundered and shaped by another culture, Underneath this, is the nature of colonial rule: You extract from one country and you grow wealth in another country.
