An average African woman or country is typically a rape victim - politically,socially,economically,infrastructurally and what have you-especially in Nigeria which has long taken its rightful place among the committee of failed States but has stubornly refused to officially assume its new status- nothing works and the system,including the most vital obligation of government which is maintenance of law and order has completely failed and collapsed. The only thing that could be boasted of is government embezzlement,corruption in high places and deliberate victimization and maltreatment of the masses. This sculpture piece,After midnight depicts an average African nations or womans situation after all its ordeals. The African country or woman is left after all that has transpired,virtually naked with little or no covering for her nudity even though she is saddled with the massive responsibility of suckling so many kids. This sculptural figure is seen trying helplessly to mobilize whatever little shreds of covering is left towards shielding herself from complete nudity! How far or how well she could succeed in doing that is still left to meticulous observation especially with the overbearing and bullying presence of her rapists who could return any moment without prior notice.
