J.d. Ojeikere (Johnson donatus) was born in 1930, started out as a darkroom assistant in 1954 at the ministry of Information in Ibadan. In 1968 he began one of his largest projects as he documented Nigerian hairstyles. This was a hallmark of Ojeikere’s work and he printed approximately a thousand pictures of different African women’s hair. It is for this sole reason that several odes have been made to Okhai, one of such are the images of Chini Odogwu of Studio Wellbrook.
