PHOTOGRAPHY LEGEND JONATHAN MANNION ON TOUR IN NIGERIA THIS WEEK
Mannion’s first established himself as a cultural force through his work with the recording industry, documenting over twenty years of hip-hop music. Early in his career, when many in mainstream media were dismissing rap music as a passing fad, Mannion was hustling to create the cover art for Jay-Z’s debut LP, Reasonable Doubt. It was the first of many iconic album covers with prominent MCs that quickly crowned Mannion as hip-hop’s premiere visual biographer.
“We are excited about bringing Jonathan Mannion to Nigeria. Both Hennessy and Jonathan have played a key role in the development and formation of the DNA of the Hip Hop Music & Culture. Art and Hip Hop Enthusiasts will be presented with an invaluable opportunity to explore some of Jonathan Mannion’s legendary body of work. For us, this is an initiative which remains true to Hennessy Artistry – celebrating Music, and in this case, rather creatively and hopefully, memorably” – Lere Awokoya, Brand Manager for Hennessy Nigeria.
The project being the first of its kind in Nigeria, is another initiative of Hennessy Artistry as a continuous means of expressing its love for Music.
