I MUST have one of these. I served in the Peace Corps in Cameroon and Badu was in heavy rotation amongst us blancs. One friend in particular would love it...

I think it would be more effective if the border was gone and just the central image were the part being focused on.

Cut and paste job with the fist sorta bugs me. Feels like he's too scared to let the middle image speak for itself.

To me, anyway.

Agreed, but I guess that this will become more common in the future. For example, a part of Live Trade will take place there in July:

I really like this print; not very creative but the frame's giving it the right mood. I'm still rather indifferent to Ms. Badu and her music, though.

Having worked in South Africa and taken time off to explore many other African countries ... I think this image captures the feel. Nicely done.

And yes, Lagos is broken and dangerous. Go there at your own risk. Yet another patch of Hell on Earth.

notice the EB earing. you might mistake that for an obvious reference to the artist, but look again. its clearly a subtle ExpressoBean nod.
