In my 3rd year of Uni, I got a 4 year contract with Tigo as a model. That's when I met Bob Pixel. He shot my nationwide billboard campaign. After that we became friends and will occasionally link up to shoot models from my agency Unwind. We always kept in touch and sent jokes

Bob Pixel captured some Ashanti Festival. Listen there were other photographers oh but Bob is Bob. When his images came out you could tell the difference. He was that good.
