There must be something in the air in Nigeria that makes everyone in the country a good story teller. Okay not everyone in the country but a good crop.

INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED NIGERIAN WRITER, CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE, HAS LAUNCHED A CAMPAIGN WHERE SHE WOULD ONLY WEAR NIGERIAN FASHION BRANDS
If this does not tell you that whatever power you attain in life and pedestal you eventually get to, you have to give back and help bring light to where you started, you have your life goals all wrong. This campaign has been launched fully and is solely aimed at supporting indigenous designers, because buying a fenty boot ( I love you Rihanna) is not going to help the fashion industry and then the Nigerian economy as a whole grow. The campaign visuals can be viewed via an Instagram page created by her nieces Amaka and Chisom.
Starting from twitter, a movement "#BuyNaijaToGrowTheNaira" was born to help recover the economy from the aggressive hands of recession, and in other news the campaign was birthed to strike an inherent behaviour of supporting locally made goods and services and hopefully patriotism.
