I was Featured Live on the BBC and Arise TV! Here’s How the World is Talking About My Maps.

A few weeks ago, I was featured Live! on the BBC’s program: Focus in Africa. The call was very impromptu and I was done with the interview before I could blink. Yet, I don’t think my body has been able to absorb it all yet. I was featured alongside Winnie Rioba who saw the ‘ease of travel in Africa’ map for Nigerians and created her own version for Kenyans. Somehow, our maps caught the eye of the BBC and they wanted us to speak to the world about it. Enjoy the short segment below (we were nervous):

If you would like to watch the video on Facebook, you can do so here. I must give a shout-out to our friends from Ghana, Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Zambia who have replicated the map for their country people. It will be awesome to see more and more of these colorful info-graphics.

Then, a few days ago, I got another call to feature Live! on The Morning Show on Arise TV. This was another opportunity that I was thankful for. By then, I was more comfortable speaking about what I love to do on camera. You can watch the video on YouTube here.

Here’s the full interview with Stephanie Coker – Aderinokun and Toyosi Etim here:
