My Freedom Story campaign was initiated to create awareness about societal ills, and in turn bring about social change and impact in our communities. The concept of the campaign is to feature celebrities who serve as role models in the society, showcasing a MAKE BELIEVE scenario of who they could have been versus who they have now become, without the gift of opportunity. These images DO NOT IN ANY WAY reflect the real stories of ANY celebrity that was featured in the campaign.
The pictures of Waje, Omawunmi, Banky W, and many others to be revealed very soon across different social media channels will show your favourite celebrities in unfortunate situations as part of FREEDOM FOUNDATION’S ongoing campaign, ‘My Freedom Story’.
This photography exhibition by Nigeria’s foremost photographer Kelechi Amadi-Obi takes us on a real journey of ‘what if’ circumstances. What if these celebrities grew up under different circumstances, what if they made different choices, what if they did not have the gift of opportunity, would they still have become who they are today? These are the scenarios painted in the pictures you see, to show you how the gift of opportunity can help create a better life for the under privileged in the society.
‘My Freedom Story’ brings more awareness to the deplorable state of many of the underprivileged in our society who have no support, as well as inspire us to reflect on how we Nigerians can make positive impact in these lives.
