ART CRUSH

NYANYE by Osborne Macharia

Osborne Macharia broke the internet yesterday! Tinglingliliiiii! (That is the sound of glass breaking by the way 🙂

He did not need to wear a garbage bag in a semi–nude state à la Kim Kardashian. Nor did he need to dye his hair orange and run for the presidency of the United States!

None of these shenanigans had to be applied!

He simply did it with his brilliance and I am here to tell you all about it! As you all know we at CYNOSURE are completely in love with Osborne and his amazing team because of the bar that they have raised. This bar is so high only God and Bien Aime of Sauti Sol can touch it currently!

All my Facebook friends spammed my timeline with one word, NYANYE and I knew Osborne and his team had done it once again with an epic collaboration that I viewed and immediately loved!

The project did not disappoint at all! In fact it made me so happy that aging is part of life! That I will one day look like wisdom and grace are my middle names. That my grandchildren will look up to me with raw love and admiration in their eyes just because of my existence. That I will have my life story hidden in my gaze and that all the people I will meet will be curious about my heydays!

This project was released just in time for this year’s International Women’s Day and Osborne’s project is just that, an ode to all the amazing women and the fierce grandmothers that are rocking their age with all the style and grace in the world!

*I do not know whether the tale accompanying the images is real but I will let you all be the judge.
