6 Things You Didn’t Know About Awol Erizku, The African Man Behind The Beyonce Baby Shoot!!

Queen Yoncé is having TWINS and this piece of news still gives us life.

The image of the singer kneeling in front of a colourful floral bouquet, wearing only a bra, silky underwear, and a long, mint-green veil has officially broken the internet after she beat Selena Gomez’s title of the most-liked image on instagram with 6.4 million likes (at the time of writing)

Later that day, Mrs Knowles-Carter posted more pics on her website titled I HAVE THREE HEARTS, showing past pics of her pregnancy with Blue Ivy (which, if you remember, many people thought was fake), her mother’s pregnancy with her and her grandmother carrying a baby Mama Knowles.

But more importantly she also put up more pics of her immaculate twin pregnancy shoot. So we wanted to find out more about the creative visionary  and the lenses that crafted these shots with Queen Bey.
