'Lek'wem' in Igboland, eastern part of Nigeria, means 'see this!', drawing your attention.
And I really need to draw your attention to this artwork:
First, Red is my favourite colour
2. I loove curls
3. I loove voluminous hair, the bigger the better
So, it seems like whoever made this artwork, had me in mind; this is just me.
