Nigeria is a nation of paradoxes. Crime and corruption, Boko Haram and Niger Delta militants. But Nigeria also has one of the largest movie-producing industries in the world, Nollywood, and Nigerian culture is spreading all over the world. Nigeria’s glass is half empty, half full, as today’s guest Eromo Egbejule describes it.
In this Medea Vox episode, senior lecturer Tobias Denskus and Nigerian journalist Eromo Egbejule discuss contemporary Nigeria and how the representations and media images of Africa are changing. Old stereotypes are challenged only to be replaced by new ones.
