FUEL PUMP MILLIONAIRES
Karo Akpokiere created the above illustration for I-jusi magazineʼs 27th issue – “Music Issue” (LP Cover Issue). Contributors were required to either reinterpret an existing 33rpm LP album cover or design a cover for a ficticious band. I decided to design for a ficticious band and used the opportunity to comment on the fuel situation in Nigeria.
ABOUT THE FUEL PUMP MILLIONAIRES
Far from being musicians, the Fuel Pump Millionaires are a band of thieves who hit the jackpot whenever fuel is bought from their pumps. You always get less than you pay for because their fuel pumps are rigged. This phenomenom appears to be common to Lagos were I live at the moment and shows that the corruption that is unfortunately a part of everyday life here, cuts across all strata of society from the government to the governed.
