EPIC FAIL FROM OXFAM (AGAIN!!!)

Published on : 14 January 2013 - 3:31pm | By RNW Africa Desk (RNW Africa)
More about:

This week: another epic campaign fail from NGO Oxfam. A beautiful documentary about the Down Syndrome Foundation of Nigeria. A rather weird basketball challenge from Ikenna. Plus: Mozambique's fast-rising ragga and hip-hop star Dama Do Bling ('Lady of Bling').

RNW Africa producer Ikenna Azuike presents What's Up Africa (WUA): a weekly entertainment video blog on what's hip, creative and making the news in Africa. Ikenna is on the look-out for Africa's innovators and cultural creatives, so be sure to get in touch via Twitter or Facebook if you have a hot tip.

Why did the campaign fail again? I watched the video twice and couldn't understand why it failed. I fear it failed to reach a broader audience because there is no other reason it could have failed. I shared the video on my Facebook page unfortunately its too late.
