Lemi and Peter Tosh

I missed designing a Peter Tosh cover. He is my reggae hero. I met him twice in the 1980s during his private visits to Lagos. I asked him about the ‘No Nuclear War’ cover and he smiled and said: “Neville Garrick already finished work on it.” Today, right now in Nigeria, I would love to do a cover for Asa, I love her music and message but I’m not gonna go ask for that myself!!!

Lemi

He also named his son after Peter Tosh, but as he did not want an English name he added an African twist to it and the result is: Omotosho.
