Not Your African Cliché
About This Show
Four Mics, Four Nigerian Women, Zero African Clichés.
We are four Nigerian women with interesting opinions and a shared disgust for ignorant comments about our continent. Yes, the CONTINENT of Africa. No, not the country! As a result, we have decided to create a platform where we can tell you more about us rather than letting disney channel and Nat Geo Wild do it for us.

4 days ago
We are bacccckkk! In keeping with the theme of the back-to-school season, the Ladies of NYAC relieve their beginning of school year memories and talk about our favorite things about the season. From buying gel pens and fancy stationary to sewing new house clothes for (Nigerian) boarding school to new fall TV lineup. We also give advice to the youngins on how (not) to start the school year, and suggest ways that working people may infuse their jobs with that back-to-school energy.
