Power Of Love - the new film collaboration between Boy.Brother.Friend, Burberry and Lagos-based filmmaker, Chukwuka Nwobi.

Through conversations on film, six prominent artists share perspectives on power, their creative craft and Lagos state of grind. The film piece observes the intricacies of a country, an emerging market, and the catalytic force: ambition. Framing the Boy.Brother.Friend community, the film marks the story of homegoing for many, including KK Obi, Creative Director and Stylist of the delicate and stunning new work.

The film is shot at various locations around the infamous Lagos state, often mistaken for a city. Nigerian photographer Kadara Enyeasi captures Abba T. Makama; Mewalga Mohammed; musician, Wurld; Ifebusola Shotunde; Ifedoyin Shotunde; and actor, Jammal Ibrahim among natural life, green spaces, waterways, as an ode to the Lagos skyline - projecting a new world view starting from West Africa.

The creatives recount feelings from the heart. Sharing responses to a set of questions posed by writer/researcher Emmanuel Balogun, the work inspects the reach of power to unlock its source - driving the viewer to preserve power for collective force.
