Nissi Ogulu launches NFT for good collection ‘Jigsaw Tribe’ on Binance
Nissi Ogulu, ace musician and visual artist, recently added another feather to her hat as she launched the world’s leading blockchain ecosystem and cryptocurrency infrastructure provider, Binance’s ‘Jigsaw Tribe.’ The digital art series, which features a collection of unique pieces exploring the music heritage of Africa through ancient yet animated instruments, explores the different facets of life and music, each represented as a puzzle piece.
The NFT collection comprises NFTs with various rarity levels and pricing, added value utilities including invitations to live events and art exhibitions to concessions on signed & printed digital art pieces and white listing privileges to future NFT drops. The exclusive artwork series will be sold in a premium auction on the Binance NFT Marketplace between May 30th and June 20th, 2022 as part of the latest collaboration for Binance Charity’s NFT For Good Campaign, an initiative that enables world-renowned creators to convert their art and creativity into meaningful global action targeting social and humanitarian issues. As part of this, a percentage of proceeds will go to The Reach.ng an initiative which provides over 6000 meals a month for underprivileged people in Rivers state & Nigeria along with other ad hoc community initiatives.
The brilliant London-based creative’s intention with ‘Jigsaw Tribe’ is to “take you across the continent to discover hand-crafted musical instruments, in all their colourful glory, that may not be known to the rest of the world. The pieces also reflect the music tradition of Africa, with its amazing sounds, in a hyper-contemporary and animated artistic expression.”
In response to this, Helen Hai, executive VP of Binance and head of Binance Charity, enthused: “Binance Charity’s NFT for Good initiative connects creators, their art and their cause. Jigsaw Tribe is yet another exciting example of this and it’s beautiful to see the series merging tradition and technology. Having spent many years working in Africa, the region, the people and their culture holds a special place in my heart. I’m thrilled we’re able to collaborate with Nissi in homage to her heritage.”
The exclusive NFT For Good collection was available on the Binance NFT marketplace in collaboration with Binance Charity on May 30, 2022.
