History is an important part of human existence. Without knowledge of what happened in the past, it’s impossible to move forward or do better than our predecessors. Every day, we see why history plays a crucial role in shaping today – Martin Luther’s dream became Barack Obama’s reality, Chinua Achebe’s unequalled writing style influenced Chimamanda Adichie’s literary prowess and so many other examples.
This is why Accelerate TV’s new YouTube series, We’re Never Going To Make It is considered a necessary inclusion in today’s myriad of web-based shows. The 3-minute-long episodes were created to educate young Nigerians on history including details about people, events, cities and more. WNGTMI features two housemates, J.T (Elo Ogbolu) and A.J (Adebukola Oladipupo). A.J who reveal random fun facts about the history of Lagos. While J.T is the outgoing one, his nerdy housemate A.J is almost always buried in a book or on her phone digging up historical tit bits.
The series, which airs every Wednesday on Accelerate TV’s YouTube page, was created by Seyi Babatope, written by Odenike Babatope and produced by Jite Ovueraye and Bolanle Olosunde.
