Northern Nigerian Talk Show personality – Salma Phillips of The Salma Show is the first Nigerian woman to be featured in African Women You need to know(AfWYNK) on BBC Africa .
This weekly feature sees Salma Phillips as the first Nigerian media personality to be profiled on account of her tenacity and stride in the electronic media industry.
According to Salma;
“My journey started 3 years ago when I shot my pilot episode, amidst a lot of setbacks and discouragement, I was determined to give whatever it takes to succeed. After much rejection, I proceeded to study TV production at the BBC Academy . I could not take No for answer anymore. …” “ It feels great to finally see it coming together”.
It is on this premise that Salma Phillips is being recognized by BBC Africa as the first Northern talk show personality to have not one but 2 talk shows on prime time television – The Salma Show on African Magic Urban channel 153 & Arewa Ta Yau on African Magic Hausa later in the year.
