I did a post not too long ago titled “My Big fat Nigerian wedding” were i talked about how extravagant and party Crazy Nigerians can be when it comes to Weddings. http://wp.me/p2bjQ7-rh . Here is this Beautiful presentation of our Traditional Wedding with Dolls used. Its too cute .

This photo-shoot was taken by Nigerian photographer Obi Nwokedi ,who said he was inspired by  French photographer Beatrice’s “Barbie and Kens” wedding shoot on Italian Vogue,and he decided to create a Nigerian Traditional wedding shoot with Kunle and Bimbo (black Barbie and Ken) . His wife designed all the outfits.Everything  took 5 months to complete.

  5. Reblogged this on Conceptualist Hic and commented:
    simplement beau !

  6. A fine innovative concept

  7. Nawa O, I do love this concept. But as I look at these dolls I would like to see less green eyes and Brazilian-esque weaves and more braids, cornrows with coral beads et al. I know this sparks up the usual debate of what it is or what it means to look ‘Nigerian’. I am not so much interested in this debate, I just remember that when growing up I wanted to play with more dolls I could relate to…
