There are quite a number of talented people in Africa and the world as a whole but our interest is in how they are able to use their talent productively. Obinna Omeruo is one of such people – brother to Nigerian fashion designer Ugonna Omeruo of the House of Nwocha brand as well as being a freelance fashion stylist, he has shown that he has a hidden ace under his sleeve and that is his drawing abilities.
The artist, who has sketched for brands like House of Nwocha and Souza, took on a mini-project of his own and sketched all the stars on the 2014 Academy Awards’ best dressed list. They include Cate Blanchett, Lupita Nyong’o, Charlize Theron, Amy Adams, Kate Hudson, and a few others. The detailing he puts into each outfit is amazing.

What are your thoughts? The outfits are pretty well drawn aren’t they?
