It was a shut down Saturday in Lagos, April 30 with an evening for the Lagos edition of the global campaign called the Desperados Collectives.

The exclusive event organized by the tequila flavoured beer brand, Desperados, was held at the magnificent Jewel Aedia, Eti-Osa, Lekki.

A cocktail of varied creative energy, it was indeed a playground uniting artists, disc-jockeys and content creators.

In a pulsating atmosphere filled with positive energy, young art connoisseurs enjoyed the visual treat of digital artistry showcased by Nigerian multidisciplinary artist, Mayowa Alabi aka Shuta Bug, amongst other international artists.

Nigerian born Mayowa Alabi, also known as Shuta Bug first stepped into the limelight in 2017 when he won the European Union /United Nations Women Gender Equality ‘Picture It’ Comic and Cartoon Competition. He has since had two solo exhibitions in 2017 and 2019 respectively.

Shuta Bug who also works as an artist at the British Broadcasting Corporation was selected from Nigeria for the Desperados Collectives Campaign where he was commissioned to create a series of designs featuring the Desperados bottle that resonates with the brand’s affinity for playful experimentation.
