In today’s world, Extra is been used as a sort of negative tag to describe hyper energised personalities others find a little too much to cope with or be around. As a Nigerian woman with a very deep croaking voice, a Nigerian accent mixed with a hyper bubbling personality, it’s practically impossible for me to hide my personality even if i tried.
I have been tagged EXTRA alot in a downcast manner for being my authentic self and I have been called special to by some of the wonderful people who told me they love me for same reasons that I have been negatively tagged EXTRA, and it’s that positive narrative I have decided to hold on.
Hence the inspiration behind this new art – Wonderfully Made to Be Extra which I am dedicating to all the passionate super exciting humans whom have been tagged EXTRA with a negative stamp at some point in your lives.
Yes! You have been wonderfully created to be extra so please I sincerely want you to hold this truth in your heart always –
“You’re the best version of you God gifted this universe with, so you do not exist to hide your authentic EXTRA self. You exist to give this world that EXTRA touch of you for positive impact and to give yourself joy that will in turn overflow to others and if someone cannot stand you for being your authentic EXTRA self, then that’s is on them”
