My Nigeria: Going Beyond Cliches
Filmmaker Brian Tilley talks about the making of the My Nigeria series and the idea behind it.
Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation, is one of the continent’s largest and fastest growing economies.
For every stereotype of corruption, scamming and extremism, there are many millions of Nigerians just making their country tick. Nigeria is packed with talent, creativity, initiative and enterprise at all levels of society.
Al Jazeera’s My Nigeria series features six Nigerians who invite us into their worlds, sharing their stories, lives, work and communities, in their own words, presenting a broad picture of Nigeria.
