You have got to love the power of the internet! If you love social media as much as I do, then you have probably seen illustrations of rapper Drake dressed in a Ghanaian smock aka Batakali or Rihanna as a Zulu girl. If you haven’t well no problem.

For obvious reasons, a Ghanaian fashion illustrator by the name of Denny Owusu has got everyone in awe with his works . Apparently, the artist designs unique African inspired T-shirts and other apparels but no one was talking about his designs until he decided to sketch high profiled personalities as Africans, he even went on to give them African names. Take a look
