17 images that will make you crave a visit to Northern Nigeria


It’s not all about the single-story of bombs, violence, terrorism and crudity….No, in fact, northern Nigeria was never about these violent representation she’s now being unfortunately pitted with. She is actually beautiful. These 17 pictures, some with a touch of vintage, usher the viewer’s mind into the aesthetic truth about the home of Kilishi, Fura and Suya. ….

Big big kudos to wonderful photographer, storyteller and ‘genius-in-play’, Editi Effiong , for these amazing insight through the North.
