Northern Nigerian TV Personality Salma Phillips recently shared her journey on BBC Africa’s ‘African Women You Need to Know’. You may not know her, but she is a rising star in the TV world especially in the Northern part of the country. She also has a TV show on Africa Magic.
Salma Nabilaa Phillips whose work, ‘The Salma Show’ is gaining momentum is the first Nigerian woman to be featured in African Women You Need To Know (AfWYNK) on BBC Africa. The weekly feature sees Nabilaa as the first Nigerian media personality to be profiled on account of her tenacity and stride in the media industry.
She says about her work, “My journey started three years ago when I shot my pilot episode, amidst a lot of setbacks and discouragement. I was determined to give whatever it takes to succeed. After much rejection, I proceeded to study TV production at the BBC Academy. I could not take ‘No’ for answer anymore.  It feels great to finally see it coming together.”
Salma Phillips was recognised by BBC Africa as the first Northern talk show personality to have two talk shows on prime time television, ‘The Salma Show’ on African Magic Urban and ‘Arewa Ta Yau’ on Africa Magic Hausa coming up later in the year.
