With his imagination, sharp wit and all-round uncontournable wholesome beautyness, Goddy Leye has been a major inspiration. When he passed in 2011, he left a wealth of work and influence which resonates on. As part of the Boda Boda Lounge Project, we present a retrospective of Goddy’s films (along with texts by and about him and ArtBakery published in the Chronic), available to watch online from Friday November 21 until Sunday November 23. Rest in power Goddy!
