According to Isaac Geralds “We haven’t done exactly well with our image in terms of corruption and 419, but a lot of people are starting to see Nigeria from the stand point of entertainment a lot”.
So much dirt has been thrown on the image of Nigeria over the past two decades, as a result of the corruption in government, internet fraud a.k.a yahoo yahoo a.k.a 419 and other shady dealings by Nigerians home and abroad. But are we beginning to see changes in the way the world sees this country in recent times? Is the Nigerian entertainment industry changing all that?
