Amazing World Of A Three-Year-Old Nigerian Child (A Photo Exhibition)

Master Onafujiri  Remet is just three years old, and come June 8, 2013, he will be exhibiting the best of his photography  collection to the world at Terra Kulture  on Victoria Island, Lagos.

He is healthy-looking, happy and brilliant. He plays around with his siblings like any child his age will do, yet, he has succeeded in attracting the world’s attention through photography, to the beauty of his ‘child’s world’.

His age is far from being reflected in what he is doing at the present with the camera lens. Click! click! click! goes  Onafujiri’s camera as he captures exciting moments everywhere. And his passion for photography has qualified his family to pass for an ‘Art House’.

For those who have been following the arts in Nigeria, it could be recalled that the Remet sisters, Onatteni and Onarietta, older siblings to this young photographer, made their marks in painting at the tender ages of 14 and 18 months respectively.

The Remet sisters drove their passion to award-winning points; they held exhibitions of their colourful collections that earned them places of recognition through diverse media across the world.

For Onafujiri,  photo shooting started at age 2, and he has since been enjoying expressing his passion around the busy city of Lagos.

The proud parents of the Remet children are Pius and Lilian Remet, who are both professional artists. According to Pius Remet, their understanding of helping children identify and develop their God-given talents remains a driving force for them.

Pius Remet believes that the much-desired change in society should begin with sowing value into the lives of young children by helping them learn how to engage in creative things.

He said, “Society can only achieve its corporate dream from the quality of people it has and this starts with the value that we are able to create in our children.”

The Remets also want other parents to be inspired to give early parental attention to their children. They believe that many talents in children have died over time because the parents did not give quality time to help the children develop such talents.
