Meet Josh Egesi, A Multidisciplinary Artist

Anttention Media had the pleasure of interviewing a talented guy who currently ranks as the largest bottle-caps portrait in Africa. A true creative soul who has wholly given himself to the pursuit of creative excellence.

Joshua Egesi was a six year old primary two pupil when he began imitating the comic drawings of his elder sister. At that tender age, even if he could not properly express it in his incoherent babbles, he was fascinated by the idea of drawings. And just like that, spurred by the ‘magic’ of his sister’s pencil, at the age of seven, he wanted to be an artist.

In pursuance of his dream of becoming an artist, and armed with an OND certificate from Federal Polytechnic Auchi, Edo state, the inspired youngster decided to further develop his artist’s acumen. Hence, he proceeded to the University of Benin to enroll for a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts.

Like Cyrus Kabiru, the Kenyan ‘thrash collector‘, Josh sees himself as an environmental artist, Although, this perception was informed by his encounter with bottle cover as a medium in late 2015 when he was an intern at the Environmental Art Garden in Abuja. Being the restless mind that he was, he concluded that just like every other waste in the garden, the bottle caps also had to be transformed into art. He consequently figured that he could make his art more subjective with the bottle caps and immediately picked inspiration from pixels which, en-mass makes up an actual picture.



Egesi believes that art should project something concrete, not only mirror the society, but go a step further in proffering solutions to the multi-faceted problems that abound, especially in a clime like Nigeria.

Fans Heart-broken as U.S rapper Juice Wrld dies at 21

US rapper Juice Wrld has died at the age of 21, authorities say.

The musician’s death, first reported by celebrity news website TMZ, has been confirmed by medical authorities in Illinois.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said he died on Sunday. The cause of death is not yet known, the office said.

The rapper, real name Jarad Anthony Higgins, was best-known for his viral 2018 hit Lucid Dreams.

Higgins, according to TMZ, died after suffering a seizure at Chicago’s Midway airport Sunday morning.

Chicago police told the BBC a 21-year-old man suffered a medical emergency at around 02:00 (08:00 GMT) local time and was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police have launched an investigation into the death.

The rapper rose to fame in 2018, when hit singles All Girls Are the Same and Lucid Dreams, which peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, drew the attention of music fans and record labels.

In early 2018, he was signed by Interscope Records, landing a record deal reported to be worth more than $3m (£2.2m).

He topped the Billboard chart this year with his second album Death Race for Love.

In one of his songs, Juice Wrld rapped about the short lives of artists, saying “all the legends seem to die out”.

Tributes to the rapper have been pouring in on social media, with many writing “RIP Juice Wrld” to pay their respects.

In a tweet, British singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding, who collaborated with Juice Wrld on her 2019 single Hate Me, described the rapper as “such a sweet soul” who had “so much further to go”.

Hip hop artist HaHa Davis wrote on Twitter: “Heartbroken @JuiceWorlddd I love you bro.”
