In promoting his latest studio album, No Pressure, Sarkodie has been on tour and was recently in Nigeria where he had media engagements. He also hosted a listening for the album attended by Davido, Phyno Zlatan, Jim Iyke and a lot more others.
During Sarkodie’s time in Nigeria, the photographer who was assigned to capture all of his engagements on camera is Oluwaseyi Beckley, best known as Sheyo Becks.
She described the experience working with Sarkodie as a “learning yet interesting one”, as it was her first time working directly with the Ghanaian rapper.
The official photographer of Patoranking, Sheyo has also worked with other musicians including Ice Prince, Chike, Grey C, Walid, ChuddyK.
Sheyo Becks is a Lagos based creative who is passionate about photography and has been able to convert it from just a hobby into a successful career.
Born in Lagos, Sheyo considers herself a ‘full-bred Lagosian’ and is daily inspired by her environment and aims to share her perspective with the world through her lens.
Sheyo, who has been doing photography for five years now, was inspired by her love for art and the artistic aspect of photography.
“The love of art inspired me into photography, seeing amazing and artistic works of photography usually gave me goosebumps, so all of these and more inspired me cause I wanted to create,” she told Kuulpeeps.
“Er, everything about photography excites me but the artistic part of photography is what excites me the most,” she added with a smile.
Sheyo Becks, however, specializes in portrait and event photography. “I believe as a portrait photographer, I can shoot anything field of photography from lifestyle to photoshoots. I do events because it brings more money,” she said with laughter.
“I want to do art, art and more art… translating into money without watering down creativity. Working with more personalities alongside artists around the world and creating timeless memories. Definitely mentoring, impacting, touring and leaving a photography oriented/worthy legacy,” Sheyo added.
