It is interesting to note that the world will never forget Mr George Flyod’s dying story in America, a story covered by a 17-year-old teenager Darnella Frazier who filmed the incident which almost brought the world to its knees and posted it on Facebook (social media platform). While still digesting the American story, the world was hit with COVID-19 pandemic which claims from various media and government institutions stated that the pandemic emerged from China. In Africa, especially Nigeria, the film medium is engaged, like in other climes, in unveiling experiences. As a result, in this publication, you are going to enjoy the reading of articles presenting the African creative industries’ objective on drawing our attention of indigenous filmmakers who are producers of the historical genre of film from Africa’s historical pool for the edification, entertainment, and education of African audience, as well as keeping records for posterity. In support of this, one of the articles............

This is a celebratory publication since it is the first one after SCOPUS has accepted to index the journal of African Films and Diaspora Studies (JAFDIS) in the month of September 2021, which we set up in 2018. The Editorial Board and its support staff celebrate with all those authors whose articles has been accepted and published like, an examination on sexual harassment activities in the South African professional performing arts industry, South African discourse on health communication: assessing the intersection of HIV/AIDS messages; social media & television program and many more as listed on the publication.   Favour seems to have followed JAFDIS since its debut in 2018. When it first started it began as a bi-annual publication (twice a year) but became triennial (three times a year) after only one year (typically it takes us years to nurture a journal to move up from one frequency to another). When we first submitted the journal to SCOPUS for evaluation, it was reje............

 The Journal editorial team understands that it has not been easy for academics, researchers as well as research industry worldwide to conduct research the traditional way. Lockdowns and restrictions resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic have produced a number of ethical challenges for research, that should be considered carefully. With all challenges brought by the pandemic, it is interesting to note that, there is still brave researchers who managed to craft, write and submit articles for publications. This publication presents the following interesting articles like: Media Jihad Conundrum in Nigeria: A Review of Military-Media Relations vis-à-vis Boko Haram; Media and Democracy: Is Conventional Media Performing the Role of the Fourth Estate of the Realm? Framing by South African local newspapers on food security; Community participation, empowerment and mobilization: The study of Eastern Cape local web newspapers; Strategies to Mitigate the Influence of Televised Enterta............

The Journal of African Films & Diaspora Studies (JAFDIS) recognizes the dynamism of society and the forces that drive social change. Some of the drivers of societal change and advancement from certain disciplines have not been given adequate recognition and attention. As a result, the contributions of researchers, academics, policymakers, and practitioners from those areas are under-reported and misreported. The greatest victims of this unhealthy practice appear to be those of Diaspora Studies, Performance and Communication, Arts as well as Films, especially, in the continent of Africa. This Journal was established specifically to address this challenge, and it has been consistent in promoting this cause since its inception. Practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and academics have leveraged the platform provided by this Journal to publish their research outputs, project their contributions and respective disciplines in an unbiased manner, as evident in the Issues of the Journal............

African culture has been projected variously by different scholars. The case of this being willy-nilly misrepresented often by “tainted” accounts from Western perspective has it fair dose in extant literature. The imperative to address this pejorative and present accurate account of the rich African culture and its import is one of the cardinal aims and objectives of this Journal. And the Journal of African Films, Diaspora Studies, Performance Arts and Communication Strategies is a veritable platform for advancing and sustaining this course. Thus, it provides an avenue for African scholars at home and in the Diaspora to project African cultural heritage and its multi-faceted sectoral impact on the society through films, dramas, music, dance, masquerades, carnivals and other forms of communication. The Journal strives to uphold the virtues of African culture, addresses its crisis with Western culture and the impact on Africans as well as African states. In this Issue, answe............

This issue, devoted to varia, offers an array of articles on both subjects covered by this journal, namely African films and Diasporas. It confirms the importance of languages and cultures in people daily lives and illustrates the bond between cinematographic productions and those cultures. It equally confirms the power of the screen and visual arts in attracting attention to challenges facing African nations and denouncing societal evils. From the Mahgreb to Nigeria, Rwanda and Zimbabwe, it also retraces a network of images, beliefs and similarities. Under the title: the fate of Igbo People in Diaspora and the survival of the Igbo Nation: Insights from Igbo Students Association, Delta State University, Abraka, Anyanwu’s article considers the issue of language as it affects both Nigeria and its diaspora, adding to previous publications on the subject. Nigerians’ reluctance to use and promote their national and regional languages has already been stressed. Focusing on Igbo language............

    Editorial Note  Françoise Ugochukwu Open University (UK)       The Nigerian cinema has already been the subject of many publications, treating the many themes treated by that cinema, its locations and impact. This issue of JAFDIS is another first, focusing on individual African films, analysed separately or in a comparative way to assess their impact on viewers and their societies. We wanted to offer scholars a unique opportunity to discover four individual and very different films, representing the various phases of the young, new African cinema from 1998, 2002, 2010 and 2013. These productions emanate from Igboland, Yorubaland and Northern Nigeria respectively - covering the three main culture groups of that vast country - but also from Lesotho, testimonies to various languages and cultures. The six contributors are in post in various countries – Nigeria and Lesotho, Britain and Germany, and come from various academic fields............
