Naij by Jide

Naij played to hundreds of amazed people last year. Corruption, mismanagement, fraud, war are the stereotypical views of Nigeria and indeed Africa as a whole.This block-busting documentary explodes the mis-education and stereotypes and puts the country we now call Nigeria into context. If you've ever asked yourself "Why is Africa the way it is ?" the answers are here..
* How the British fixed  elections for their cronies
* Why "Nigeria" does not exist
* How Europeans encouraged civil war
* The Role and Rise of the Army
* Creating poverty as a means of controlling Africans 

The Figurine
 
Two friends find a mystical sculpture in an abandoned shrine in the forest, and one of them decides to take the artwork home. Unknown to them, the sculpture is from the Yoruba goddess, Araromire which bestows seven years of good luck on anyone who encounters it, but no one told them what would happen after the first seven years This beautifully shot film highlights Nigerian culture while telling a mysterious and thrilling tale with gorgeous cinematography. It premieries at the luxury 450 seat Southbank cinema. Get a ticket for Naij (£5.00) and you get free entry to the Figurine !
