The work of London-based director and photographer Meji Alabi bridges the gap between African and Western markets, across a range of visual mediums including music video, photography, advertising campaigns, magazine editorials, and artist branding.

As co-founder of Lagos-based creative production company JM Films, Meji worked with Beyoncé on the artist’s 2020 ‘Black is King’ video project. Other recent projects include the remote-directed ‘Monsters You Made’ for Burna Boy ft. Chris Martin, and Tinie’s ‘Whoppa’ ft. Sofia Reyes and Farina in Mexico City.
