    ELEWA


    Over a decade ago, at only 22,  Oroma Elewa spearheaded the definitive magazine Pop’Africana and delivered a rejuvenated, never-seen-before image of Africa to a global audience - establishing a visual discourse on contemporary African ideas in style and aesthetics you now see everywhere today.


     


    In a time without social media, where dialogue around Africa was desperately trite and cliche, Oroma stood up to voice a new paradigm of what it meant to be African, leading the way and engaging a market that had been severely ill-represented. 



    Under Oroma’s creative direction, Pop’Africana received global recognition and garnered accolades from the likes of Vogue, Dazed Digital, Fader, The Independent, Sundance, Yahoo, and many, many other notable spaces making Oroma’s voice a welcomed and respected addition to the industry.  


     


    Elegant, chic, inspiring, style star are but a few words audiences and press have used to describe the personal style of the Nigerian-born artist, pioneer and accomplished cultural influencer. 


     


    Oroma Elewa is also the author of the popular poem, “I am my own muse. I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to better.” famously misattributed to Frida Kahlo.
