Finally after a false alarm 3 months ago, fingers crossed, you can watch out for me in my 2nd TV debut on….Through the Eyes of an African airing tomorrow (FINALLY!) Saturday, April 9th, 2011 @6:30 p.m. (Nigeria time/GMT) on DSTv/MAGIC WORLD AFRICA aka Channel 112.
A few months ago I joined a group of fab female photographers on a road trip to Osun State, Nigeria to cover the Osun Osogbo festival. It is an annual fertility festival held at the Osun Sacred Grove a World Heritage site, that receives global media attention and a slew of international visitors. While we were out shooting, we were tapped on by Yvonne Bassey, presenter and producer of the show Through the Eyes of an African on DSTv and interviewed. As camera shy as I try to be, it was not my first TV appearance. I appeared as an extra on a British TV series “Hi de hi” that was filmed in my home town of Dovercourt, Essex in the 80’s and well, it was then that I knew someday I was gonna make it big. Ha! Ha! Anyway, for those of you in Nigeria, who will be stuck at home due to the election curfews tomorrow, tune in!
A note from the producer – Join Yvonne Bassey once again as she leads you into the mysteries of the Osun State sacred grove in a compelling documentary titled Ajodu Osun Osogbo. Be our guest (and mine too!)
