De Somalische muurschilder Muawiye Hussein Sidow, plaatselijk beter bekend onder zijn artiestennaam ‘Shik Shik’, is verantwoordelijk voor het kleurrijke karakter van de winkelstraten in Mogadishu. Hij beschilderde de winkelgevels van meer dan honderd supermarkten, kapperszaken en theehuizen in en rond de Somalische hoofdstad. Hieronder de meest in het oog springende.
