Bénir Africa – Tim Gichuru

Bénir Africa – Tim Gichuru
“I started out with the name Bénir which means to bless because no matter what project i do, i’d like to dedicate it to the audience who are  challenged in one way or another.
To me, life doesn’t have a straight path, we’re kind of pushed to run through this hurdles and bumps to reach where we want to be.I always aim to bring stories to life through my work and kind of twist realism to the unimaginable.”
