Nigeria: Stories From the Coast of West Africa

Jan 12, 2016

This hour, we feature stories and sounds from the West African country of Nigeria. 

First, WSHU reporter Ebong Udoma checks in from Abuja, Nigeria, where he's helped launch a brand new multimedia project called Gotel Africa. When completed, Gotel Africa will become the continent's first-ever pan-African news service. We learn more about it. 

We also talk to a local author and photographer whose new book, Summer in Igboland, paints an intimate portrait of Nigerian life and identity. And later, Afropop Worldwide’s Banning Eyre tells us about the vibrant music scene in Lagos, Nigeria.
