Portraits the Nigerian Monarchs

Posted by rod - 04.09.2013

In the western world there is not much talk about African Monarchs, and definitely no Nigerian Monarchs. I hope this changes in the future because I think these individuals have quite an history and live an interesting life.

Nigerian photojournalist George Osodi has had the opportunity to get up close and personal with many of the country’s tribal kings to document them. His photos are going to be exhibited at The Bermondsey Project in London, October 11th. I am sure it is worth checking out if you are in the city. via creative review

From: King Theron Preston Washington I

I know there is plenty of tradition government and religion in Africa but united Africa can be this way. Here are some ways to unite government. One capitol with governors and monarch council to the governed governor to to president president to highest council. The monarchs in each land will still have the ability of sovereign word and adjustments made by the original ideaologies as the legislation does not get to far fetched into other hands. The purpose of uniting is to bring forth greater monetary support to each country and province in Africa to bring forth a stronger currentcy and more global trade opportunities. This structure of government would be strong.

Another from is making all monarchs a religious symbol concerning its culture and having a regular council and a presidency.

Sincerely,

King Theron Preston Washington I
