The collection, curated by Ziggi Golding will be exhibited at the Bermondsey Projects in London from Friday October 11, 2013 as part of Black History Month (UK).

The exhibition features a selection of 40 photographs of various kings and rulers from Osodi’s travels to various palaces across Nigerian.

Nigeria is a country known for it rich and cultural heritage and in the past, was once a country of large city states and empires which collapsed after the British colonization in the late 19th century.

Having a royal title in Nigeria still has a symbolic relevance and is something to be celebrated.
