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.
