Africaniwa :  Kowaa Fake Virtual photo exhibition July 30th at 10pm

‘A Tribesman once said; Information is liberating. Another also; information is the currency of democracy.

Clearly, information is just powerful and in order for information to be of use, it has to be original, real, factual and unbiased but what happens in a world where it seems everyone is a news anchor, analyst and critic with their own version that can be branded as the truth and shared around the world at the click of a button yet with many others, risking their lives for the truth.
