RIVER ISLAND x INKQUISITIVE • After months of waiting, shooting, being patient, Turban tying, posing, excitement and make up (lol) – I can FINALLY announce, that I (alongside many other wonderful people) am the face for the National @riverisland Autumn/Winter #Together campaign! • I never EVER thought my Art career would lead me into avenues such as modelling, allowing me to rock my Turban and proudly represent the #RiverIsland family alongside the culture. It’s an EXTREMELY proud moment. 💪🏽👳🏽♂️ • So, don’t forget to visit your local River Island store, grab the new look and DONT forget to take a picture or selfie with any of the billboards featuring the Inkman. Tag me in, and I’ll be sure to repost them. • I know some of the mock up billboards went live in stores a few weeks back and I was tagged by so many of you. At the time, I was not allowed to repost, but now having gone live, be sure to re-share as you please and I’ll defo repost them! Tag @Inkquisitive. • Lastly, a few thank yous! Thank you to Holly for the initial interest and email, the entire River Island staff/team, all the visual crew who made my experience nothing short of amazing, the incredible models teaching me a few things here and there, my wife @mundheep for being my absolute fave cheerleader and handling my diva ways and of course my management Red Media Live. • What a moment, and what an experience it will be to see my parents face walk into the stores and see me representing. I know this will change my life in more ways than one. God is good. • 👳🏽♂️📸🖤

Last night, Inkquisitve took to his Twitter page to express his gratitude “from being racially abused being stared at infront of shop windows to finally being stared at behind them.”
