Codeine Documentary: Nigerian Journalist Clinches Emmy Nomination


Ruona Meyer a renowned Nigerian investigative journalist has earned herself an Emmy nomination for her documentary that exposed the dangers and health risk of codeine consumption named Sweet Sweet Codeine.

In Nigeria, thousands of young people are addicted to codeine cough syrup – a medicine that’s become a street drug.

Meyer who is also a BBC correspondent went undercover to investigate the people behind the Nigeria’s cough syrup crisis and the documentary has broken several records since BBC Nigeria released it a year ago.

According to PM News report, the documentary has won and still been nominated for many awards, most recently the International Emmy in the ‘News and Current Affairs’ Category.

Ruona Meyer took to her twitter page after the nomination and said, “Guys, I am still taking it all in but…here goes: Sweet Sweet Codeine has just got an #emmys2019 NOMINATION for News and Current Affairs, the FIRST for the BBC World Service and #Nigeria! CONGRATULATIONS, Team Africa Eye!”

The documentary prompted the Nigerian government to announce a reactionary ban on Codeine after months of trying to restructure and streamline its response to the codeine epidemic.
