Nigeria Diaspora TV Show – An Overview

BACKGROUND

The Nigerian and African Diaspora have grown over the years to be a force to be reckoned with on so many fronts. From economic, to political, to social points of view, this group of people has stood out. They represent the millions of people who have emigrated from Nigeria to other parts of the world over the years, as well as their descendants. These “Diasporans” continue to face peculiar issues owing to their status as immigrants. They range from their challenges, lifestyles, cultural integration, home affiliations, and disposition of embassies. It also includes their triumphs, problems, and fears. Many Diasporans would like to have or see a uniting platform, where they can share experiences with other Diasporans and those at home, voice their concerns regarding their various issues, whilst also particular about the happenings in Nigeria, on all fronts – political, social, economic, technological etc., therefore playing an active role in policy formation and development.
