Daily Mail: UK newspaper’s article on Nigerian rich kids is too ignorant

It’s always baffling that foreign media has always struggled to accurately depict life in African countries.

Foreign media depicts life in African countries as nasty and poor or they zoom in on the rich 1% and emphasize their extravagant display of wealth. There is never a balance in their depictions. It’s either an African is poor beyond belief of is a money, crazy aristocrat.

Daily Mail, the famous UK newspaper is the latest foreign media outlet to make a goof. Siofrra Brennan decided to write an article on the rich kids of Nigeria in Instagram. What could go wrong huh? A lot apparently.
