The cover was shot by Ty Bello, who said “Wisdom looks good on everyone.. Even inferred wisdom . ..You know the one where the bible says a fool in silence maybe considered wise .. Well these men here don't do silence... They fling forth wisdom ahead of their times and are relentless in pushing the fresh insights they’re given. It was an honour to spend the day with @chudeity and @debolalagos .

Luckily it wasn't a day spent over tweaking our brains. It was Plenty of laughing .. Some worship in the corner here and there and my irresistible urge to pinch Chude's rosy cheeks ( Chude sorry ). In the end they left me inspired ..

It's surprisingly not just about them and their amazingness .. (Though..I must say these guys have all sorts of amazeballs coming effortlessly out their ears ..,) what I sensed instead was a genuine overdrive to push the continent forward. Truly honoured to photograph you.”
