Banner was in town to speak his latest film. It’s titled “Never Heard” and it deals with issues surrounding police reform.
The film is scheduled to be released in early November. Watch the full interview below:
BBC Africa Eye recently released a new set of documentaries following the plight of multiple women. The 1st set of films tells the stories of 3 sugar babies looking to better their lives and the 2nd set follows the story of children sold into marriage to repay their family debts. Watch all of the films below:
In Kenya, “sugar daddy” relationships are out in the open – in nightclubs, on campuses, and all over social media.
Female students “prefer dating older men than dating school kids” in Nairobi, says 21-year-old Jane. Although she comes from a traditional family in rural Kenya, Jane freely admits that she gets support from two older guys, and asks, “What is wrong about sex anyway?”
Bridget Achieng is a Kenyan model, socialite, and reality TV star. But she didn’t always live the glam life. She takes us back to the slums where she grew up, and talks frankly about how she made herself famous through sex appeal, rich tycoons, and social media. *** Following some inaccurate coverage of Bridget in the Kenyan media, the BBC would like to make clear that – as they show in their film – Bridget ran a jewelry business, contributes to Nairobi Diaries, and leads a charitable foundation for children in Kibera. She currently runs an interior design consultancy in Nairobi, and has recently announced that she is expecting a baby.
Grace is a single mum and nightclub dancer who dreams of being a star. She goes to the Kenyan coast looking for a rich “sponsor” – AKA sugar daddy – who can fund her dream of making it as a singer. But is there such a thing as easy money?
Through a tradition called “money marriage”, some young girls are used as currency in a type of modern slavery among the Becheve people in southern Nigeria. Children are sold to men as old as 90 to settle debts or as a form of payment. BBC Africa hears from the girls themselves, an elderly husband and the man fighting against the custom.
In July 2018 a horrifying video began to circulate on social media. It shows two women and two young children being led away at gunpoint by a group of Cameroonian soldiers.
The captives are blindfolded, forced to the ground, and shot 22 times. The government of Cameroon initially dismissed the video as “fake news,” but BBC Africa Eye, through forensic analysis of the footage, can prove exactly where this happened, when it happened, and who is responsible for the killings.
Warning: this video contains disturbing content. Watch the full documentary below:
