Editorial Note: Today, October 1st 2013, Nigeria celebrates its 53rd Independence Anniversary and here we are again…. at the start of a new month. Time really does fly, doesn’t it? On the other hand, in some situations, it may seem like time crawls. With that in mind, I ask, what are you doing with you time today? Are you using your time to spread love or to cause pain? Today is certainly a day of joy for us all at Zen and we would like everyone reading this message to please always spread love. Peace and Love to everyone reading this message.
Captured in this image is model and Zen Magazine January 2013 cover star Ayoola Bakare. The Nigerian flag has been coloured on her body with some water paint done by the best Makeup artist on planet earth Princess Amayo and photographed by Darren King of Majestic Vision Photography. “I chose this medium of art to express my love for this great nation,” says Princess Amayo. “Full body paint on model’s top half Green/White/Green. The illusion this gives is absolutely amazing….. irep Nigeria!”.
Happy Independence Day, Nigeria! – Arinze Nwokolo
