Remember the lady in the N20 note  :)



This is Ladi Kwali (1925 - 1984), the woman on the Nigeria N20 note. She was born in the village of Kwali, Gwari region of Northern Nigeria, where pottery was a common occupation among women. She was so skilled that her work became known in Europe, Britain and America. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, her work was displayed in London at the Berkeley Galleries. She became Nigeria's best-known potter, was awarded a doctorate and was made MBE in 1963 despite not having a formal education.
