Okotete Emmanuel Joseph, also known as Oejoseff (Jozkid), is a cartoonist, born in Edo state and the first son of his father.
“I started drawing at a tender age in 2008 when I was staying with my grandmother in Delta state. Then around 2011, I started drawing people. When I saw features that fascinated me, I drew it on paper.”
“Then in 2016, I ventured into cartoon. I started with my Symban phone (Nokia E63) by the instruction of one of my Facebook friends, Abednego Starboi. I later started using my Android phone when I saw a friend of mine using his Android phone to create cartoon art. I pleaded with him to teach me and the rest is history.”
“I was also fortunate enough to meet another person on Facebook who was interested in teaching me all I know today. This man by the name, Mr. Bello set instructions through Facebook on vector cartoon and digital cartoon.”
“I always love creating something iconic right from childhood, and that’s what inspires me and pushes me to do better.”
Concerning arts and culture, Oejoseff says, “I think arts and culture in Nigeria is growing. There are so many creatives doing great things. Unlike years back when artists were looked down – it is still happening but more people are beginning to appreciate it.”
