Concept & Creative

Fictional newspaper exploring the mysterious background of Nigerian funk legend William Onyeabor, created to support the release of his comprehensive box set on David Byrne’s Luaka Bop record label.

Onyeabor, a film producer turned unlikely musical sensation, had been living with his whereabouts unknown for decades before being approached by Luaka Bop to uncover his vast catalogue for the first time.
