Don’t just tell a story, tell a picture story

#C9JA is an adventurous journey across Nigeria with the aim to tell picture stories of beautiful life moments captured in photography.

“No, you don’t need your DSLR camera, use this (the CAMON C9 smart phone) it’s a lot more pocket friendly and even better than that your camera” so said my colleague as he helped me out with my travel list.

Everyone is in high spirit, the journey is about to begin…

Five minutes later and we are set to join the C9JA tour and o boy what a travel party we are. I have always wanted to travel Nigeria and soak in the sights and sounds of this vibrant country but my word; I didn’t see that dream come true in company of some really exciting personalities.

I think it’s time I properly explain what the #C9JA tour is all about. Let’s start by trying to pronounce the word ‘C9JA’ and you get the sense it sounds more like SEE-NAI-JA right? In a nutshell, that’s the whole point. #C9JA is an adventurous journey across Nigeria with the aim to tell picture stories of beautiful life moments captured in photography. All this is made possible by the revolutionary camera technology behind the new TECNO CAMON C9.

It is one thing to travel around Nigeria to visit beautiful scenes and have fun times at different places but it’s a whole different feeling when you do the same thing in the company of amazing personalities. #C9JA placed me on a bus right with the likes of VJ Adams, the social media queen, socialprefect and yeah, I also got to fondle the new TECNO CAMON C9 pushing its amazing camera to limits with my photography skills.

To the Zoo we go…

University of Ibadan play hosts to the ancient city’s zoo. So, my jolly troupe decided to pay the zoo a visit.

The idyllic Agodi Garden welcomed us into its loving arms and we basked in its scenery and calmness. I took time out to practice my selfie shoots-the first didn’t come out that bad. I think I should smile a little more often

We still have a journey ahead of us.

Abuja, Calabar, Enugu and lastly Lagos are still cities we have to make stops but I will focus my energy right now on our second day in Ibadan-also our last day.

Let’s all wait and see.

Ibadan, it’s one more day to go. I’m already missing this place.
