Travelling with Big Brother
This is a story of the China dream, from the perspective of a Nigerian freelance journalist from struggling to report the ‘truth’ while surviving on public relations stories. While freelancing in Lagos, the unexpected happens. He gets a ten-month press invitation to travel through China and write about it. The trip is fully sponsored by the dictatorial Chinese Communist Party-led government. How does his idea of ‘truth’ evolve?
Written as a letter to a best friend, this is a story about power, in the context of China-Africa
relations. But it is also a story about survival.
