Zuriel Oduwole premiers documentary in South Africa
IN life, some crave power so they might have influence, but others become influential through hard work and thus become powerful. Nigeria’s Zuriel Oduwole epitomizes the latter, as her influence knows no bounds.
Having premiered her documentary “A Promising Africa” in Nigeria and the United Kingdom (UK), the film has now made its way to South Africa.
As part of a documentary film series that would focus on five countries over three years (Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Tanzania and Mauritius) by showing the positive aspects of the African continent, she showed her first edition, which focuses on Nigeria in Pretoria, and has begun shooting segments that would focus on South Africa.
She was formally welcomed to South Africa by Deputy Minister of Tourism Tokozile Xasa, who commended Zuriel for her image-making efforts on Africa, telling the continent’s story passionately, and for her work advocating for girls’ education.
Zuriel had earlier visited a township school in Diepsloot, near Soweto, and spoke to more than 700 children on the importance of education.
