On February, 16 February, members of the press were hosted to the viewing of My Lagos Diaries, a docu-series by nonprofit organisation, Freedom Foundation.  My Lagos Diaries chronicles a 12-year journey embarked upon by Dr. Tony Rapu and Freedom Foundation to highlight the myriad struggles of residents of Lagos’ poorest communities.

Pastor Tony Rapu

Dr Tony Rapu, a pastor and social reformer opined, ‘It is easy to take for granted the privileges we enjoy often forgetting that the difference between us and many of these poor people is just the exposure to education and opportunities we have been blessed with. That’s why it becomes a responsibility for those of us who have these privileges to create lasting opportunities for others, however small.’

Filmed in a diary-like format, My Lagos Diaries’ ultimate goal is to sensitize the general public about the struggles of these underprivileged persons while providing an opportunity for interested individuals and organizations to support Freedom Foundation’s vision via donations and funding. It will tell some of the real stories of rehabilitated prostitutes, armed robbers, drug addicts, beggars and other neglected individuals in the society. You can catch My Lagos Diaries on any of these stations at these times:

  • TVC – Sundays at 9:30pm
  • Ebonylife TV – Sundays at 3pm
  • AIT – Sundays at 6pm
  • Silverbird TV – Saturdays at 7:30pm
