Summary
There will be a Country is an ongoing multimedia project that uses current issues to create an alternate reality of a transformed Nigeria and, by extension, Africa, set in the year 2050. It is portrayed as a fictitious news publication cover named "The Naija Times." This project promotes answers to particular problems preventing the transformation of Nigeria while creating awareness of how the media shapes how the world sees Africa from a cultural perspective.
