Jambo Africa Online had to face-to-face encounter with Stephanie Chiamaka Micheal, the brains behind the Festival Of Nigeria (FON)…

JAMBO AFRICA ONLINE: Who is Stephanie Chiamaka Micheal?

STEPHANIE CHIAMAKA MICHEAL: I am a child of Africa. Specifically, I am a woman from the Igbo tribe in eastern Nigeria. However, I grew up in South Africa. But often, I say I was raised by stories on television and in books. They helped me travel across the globe while sitting on my living room couch. Those stories shaped me into who I am today, a storyteller. I say I am a storyteller because that is what I do regardless of the medium I find myself in. When I am engaging in photography, when I write a film script, when I produce an ad campaign, and even when I organise an event, I am still trying to tell a story.

What story are you trying to tell through the Festival of Nigeria?

I am trying to tell a love story. It is a romantic one. Two countries with citizens often at loggerheads, competing for the title of Africa’s giant, for one day put aside all their differences and come together to celebrate each other’s excellence and give courage to those who are making a positive impact in society. It is a true love story of two excellent African nations, Nigeria and South Africa, choosing love, peace, and unity above all.

That’s a beautiful way to describe the event. Can you let people know how to participate in this event?

Yes, of course. You can be part of our beautiful love story on the 14th of October in Randburg, Johannesburg by purchasing a ticket on Ticketpro.
