    Orange Academy Street Art


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Nigerian Didibong snapped this image of artwork on the side of the offices of Orange Academy, a brand advertising college in Lagos, Nigeria. The artwork, done by local artist Kimson, was commissioned by the college to inspire its students, who study marketing, brand advertising and more. It features several notable Nigerians, including musician and rights activist Fela Kuti. "I like the fact that the artwork was done on the first floor of the building and the outer fence," he said. "Together it told a story of liberation of the mind, of freedom, of standing for what you love and succeeding."
