Sibusiso Nkosi, popularly known by the stage name, Sbu Creative, is a graphic designer, animator, and illustrator. He recently designed a series that demonstrated the lyrics that spoke to him.
Sbu Creative said:
This is an illustrated series where I chose lyrics that spoke to me at different times in my life. The aim was to show appreciation to the artists for delivering those songs or verses and also tell my own story using each verse. Nine artists were selected and divided into different categories, three female rappers, three younger generation rappers, and three older generation rappers. Hip-Hop music has been a part of my life since I was 10 years old and it felt right and fitting to use this genre for the series.
