Journey of an African Colony, The Making of Nigeria is a 7-episode Nigerian film documentary series.[1] It was released on Netflix[2] on the 60th anniversary of Nigeria's independence.[3] The film series is based on two books by retired attorney general and commissioner for justice in Lagos State, Olasupo Shasore.[4] It is narrated and produced by Shashore. The series overviews the history of colonization, slave trade and independence in Nigeria.[5]

Shasore traveled Nigeria for the film which has an emphasis on the slave era, pre-colonialism, and independence. While there are archives that contain a comprehensive history of the country, there are hardly any films with detailed narrative like 'Journey of an African Colony'.[6]

Journey of an African Colony: The Making of Nigeria is a seven episode docuseries, each half an hour long.[7] Journey of an African Colony did a brief run on television in 2019 because Shasore wanted to make sure it was seen in Nigeria before it aired internationally.

The film series was directed by BB Shashore, with sound design by Kulanen Ikyo and cinematography by Ola Cardoso.[8]
