Introducing OBODO OYIBO

According to the Migration Policy Institute, the number of Nigerians living in America rose from 25,000 in 1980 to 376,000 within the past few years, with the largest population living in New York, Texas and Maryland. This in turn means that more and more of that population, the first and second generations consider themselves to be "Nigerian-American." My sister, Tammy, conducted a series of interviews with a small set of young Nigerians who have lived in America for over a decade, or who were born and raised here. See the trailers below.

On a weekly or bi-weekly basis, Tammy will post a new episode centered on different topics from Inter-tribal Dating to Religion to Politics and much more. 

I'm in a couple of episodes, and even helped her shoot some of the content, so you can see why this is even more special to me. Oh, and she lists me as the Producer of this series... I don't know what a producer does, but SURE THING!!! Let me add that to my list of attributes :)

I hope you look forward to watching them as much as I am.
