With a passion for Nigerians finding their voice and sharing their creativity, Nigerian artist Olaloye Bunmi took to Twitter in 2018 to create one of the biggest creative hashtag movements of the year with #WeAreNigerianCreatives.
The hashtag went viral on Twitter in February 2018 and drew the attention of media houses like BBC, CNN and Quartz. This move has had a major impact on the emerging creative culture in Nigeria and how it is consumed by the public and has also given many artists a greater desire and more opportunities to push their work.
The creative industry is a sector that encompasses expressions in art and film to fashion and architecture. It is one of the most rapidly growing sectors globally and social media has allowed creators widen the reach of their message.
