Woman Crush Wednesday: TY Bello

TY Bello was born in Ogun State. She attained a degree in economics from the University of Lagos. She briefly practiced journalism and eventually ventured into photography. TY Bello emerged onto Nigeria’s musical landscape as a member of the defunct group Kush, an acronym for Kinetically Ushering Salvation into Hearts and Homes. Other members of the group included Lara George, Dapo Torimiro and rapper Emem Ema. Kush gained popularity in the early 2000s with the single “Let’s Live Together”; the group managed to release an album before disbanding.

TY Bello was the official photographer to former President Goodluck Jonathan during his tenure in office and also does work for Thisday fashion magazine.

Bello has proven over time how incredible her picture taking skills are.

TY Bello is also a member of the Nigerian photography collective, Depth of Field and is best known for her singles “Greenland”, “Ekundayo”, “This Man”, “Freedom”, “Funmise” and “Heaven has come”.

Not only is she a great photographer, TY Bello has got a heart of Gold! She organizes an annual photography exhibition to raise funds for orphans in Nigeria and is also the director of Link-a-child, an NGO dedicated to proliferating information on orphanages in Nigeria and seeking sponsorship on their behalf.

We have nothing but love and admiration for this talented queen…
