How We Got Here is an ongoing photo series that seeks to display pivotal periodic stages responsible for shaping the continent's political, economic and social trajectories. The series starts off by exploring Colonial Legacies and continues by incorporating afrofuturism. 

Expect to be educated and blown away but do not expect us to over explain, perform or conform to the white gaze as described by Toni Morrison. 

Themes: Peter Ekeh's (1975) Theory of the Two Publics, corruption, patrimonial politics, smugness, selfishness and nonchalant narcissism.

All of themes have been pivotal to Africa's (lack of) development journey.
