Kenyan born photographer Osborne Macharia was selected to do an exclusive art prior the launch of Black Panther.

Macharia created a project titled ‘Ilgelunot’ which is a Maasai word meaning the chosen one. A US media house did a feature on Macharia revealing details of the project.

“The project tells the story of three blind Maasai elders(originally from Kajiado) who were rescued by T’Chaka during World War II after attempting to seek shelter while venturing across North Africa. The two men and one woman were exposed to Vibranium, which gave them supernatural powers, but left them blind. The elders eventually became the Black Panther’s most trusted advisors,” explains Macharia.

When Marvel needed someone to come up with an exclusive concept art for the now the popular, Black Panther, which features Kenya's Lupita Nyong'o, it turned out to be Osborne Macharia.

Breeding ground

Kenya is the breeding ground for talent and creativity. Lupita Nyong’o who featured in the popular films; Queen of Katwe and now Blank panther and who happens to be an Oscar award-winning actress ails from Kenya.

Before the original film was launched in UK, Marvel Studios reached out to a Kenyan creative to come up with an exclusive concept art.
