The Ogene Collection is inspired by Ogene, a musical instrument but also a tool used by the town cryer to call for gatherings in Igbo communities of eastern Nigeria.
"I held on to him and sobbed like a baby. That was the most comforting and soothing hug I ever had as a young adult.
He didn’t look so surprised when I told him about the encounter on the train. He was rather surprised that I had never experienced racism before. “Welcome to Babylon bro” he said."
