Nelson Makamo describes how he went from a small-town boy to a world-renowned artist and lays out his mission to portray Africa in a more optimistic light.
It makes me sad that Trevor thought art was a European thing. It makes me sad that anyone believes that. It’s one thing that a group of people defines things in a way that is only for their self interest and has no base in reality. It makes me sad that people believe it.
Big up young man.
Am I the only one who was expecting a sentence or two in one of our languages? Lol
Love his art. He’s also super handsome.
Lets make this trend on Twitter #NelsonMakomo ????
What’s not possible mara???????
Much love to you, king! ??
I hope Trevor uses his platform to promote more SA artists

I could listen to Nelson Makamo for hours. Not only is he a wonderful artist, he is a great speaker and oral history-teller. He reminds me of our Native Elders. He speaks with purpose, lessons, perspective and wisdom waaayy beyond his years
Beautiful interview. Thank you both.
Give this guy 40 years in the business, then allegations of rape using drugs. That’s how Bill Cosby went away. He was beloved.
I may not be South African, but I feel proud, cz South Africa’s so close man. I feel like South Africa’s a sibling, and so I feel proud ?
Alot of art was created in africa… its through colonialism and the control of the media where it was considered a European phenomena. Just look at picasso he stole many African artists rendition of sculptures and paintings..go research it.
I live in the Amazon rainforest. I make booby traps. I am an artist.
when Africans are successful pride oozes from my heart
Go Dude. Also, I decided to take a shot for every time you said actually and boy am I high!
