London based photographer Obi Nwokedi posed Black barbies and Ken dolls into 54 frames detailing a Nigerian wedding!! The work is intricate and the concept is amazing!!! I’ve included a few of the frames here, but head over to Obi’s official website, Photography by Obi, for the full gallery.

No african barbie –> We want an african barbie! We have an african barbie –> They are making money out of us! You people got issues!!!! I am very happy that they have these dolls, they are nice and my daughter is half Nigerian. I am a hundred procent sure, she’ll appreciate them as much as I do!!!


I love the purple cloth! The outfits, hair and makeup are on point! I would have loved to have these Barbies to play with when I was younger! I think the photographer captured the essence of a Nigerian wedding very well! I could feel it 🙂

Aww, The dolls are cute. I smiled at all of them and the creativity was cool and seems like it could be joyful to play with. The photo where they are dancing and the money is on their heads is so cool. I wish I could see that in stores near me(Wlamart, Target, Albertsons..etc) Cute customed made clothes, The photographer did a neat job.


Wow, this is so cool!


However, they did manage to deitan an old woman this past week, and check out her Depends! How humiliating for her.Heard the Nigerian had a suitcase full of ID’s.


Nigerian black babies with straight hair? LMAO!


You say that like you’ve never seen a Nigerian woman with a weave, wig, perm or any other hair piece…

London Nigerian ladies love to wear their hair in all sorts of ways – including the kinds of ways depicted on the dolls.

Nicely done, Barbie!
