Hi, I’m Juliana, but you can call me Seyi.

Although, I was born in Ibadan, Nigeria and grew in in a Yoruba household, I was raised in the UK from the age of 1 and I had never fully explored my African history until a holiday to Accra in 2011. I was amazed about how welcomed I was made to feel in other people homes, and how unlike Ghana is, from many of the stereotypes – living in the UK it’s all too easy to believe the bad press, if you are not careful. Of course the Accra sun, beaches and the clubs are great too.

So I guess I can say, that that trip to Ghana inspired me to further explore my Nigerian history and from then on my Yoruba/Ga story has accelerated and I visited Lagos for the first time last year and I had an fantastic time.

Living in the UK it’s all too easy to believe the bad press, if you are not careful.
