Named after Benedict Chukwukadibia Enwonwu - Nigerian sculptor and painter (1921-1994).
Enwonwu is an impact crater on the planet Mercury. It is named in honor of Ben Enwonwu, the modernist Nigerian sculptor and painter. The crater displays a central peak and a set of bright rays emanating from the crater rim. The rays cross the surrounding surface and neighboring craters, indicating that Enwonwu crater was formed comparatively recently in Mercury’s history. (wikipedia entry)
