Exploring Social Issues of the World in 2020 | fashion

Hi lovely, welcome to the blog.

Following the Key Influencer Marketing Trends for 2020 in my previous post, I have decided to ensure all my fashion collaborations this year address a current social issue.

A social issue is a problem that influences many individuals within a society. A social issue has many categories in depth as well as light. It’s a common problem we see happening in our society. A social issue can be considered as a problem that influences many people and many peoples strive to solve the issue. It is often the consequence of factors extending beyond an individual’s control, and is the source of a conflicting opinion on the grounds of what is perceived as morally correct or incorrect personal life or Interpersonal social life.

Despite the dire state of the world today – and the stereotype that millennials’ are selfish and apathetic, the generation – aged 18 to 35 – cares deeply about global issues, and they’re determined to tackle them. Below are some concerning world issues, 90% of these issues are pertinent to my country Nigeria.

As mentioned earlier, I’d be tackling the following in my collaborative shoots this year in a bid to bring more light to them;


 1. Climate change / destruction of nature

 2. Large scale conflict / wars 

 3. Inequality (income, discrimination) 

 4. Poverty 

 5. Religious conflicts 

6. Government accountability and transparency / corruption

 7. Food and water security 

 8. Lack of education 

9. Safety / security / well being 


10. Lack of economic opportunity and unemployment

Cities like Lagos become over-populated as Most of the unemployed in the country are those who left their homes to search for a better life. The youth get desperate and turn to illegal means to make money. Banks do not also make loans with favourable interest rate available to the youth.

11. Child mortality

Sadly, according to the statistics,Nigeria comes second in the world’s child mortality rating and over 2000 children die of hunger, diseases and abandonment daily. Lack of education amongst women, bad health care system in the country are the main causes of this. 

12. Underage marriage (child brides)

The United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) says Nigeria has the second-largest number of child brides in the world, with 23 million girls and women married out as children in the country, thereby ending their educational strive. Sigh 

13. Tribalism

The biggest tribes in Nigeria are Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba, and they all are culturally and religiously different, not to mention the fact that they all speak their own language. These differences have been causing conflicts all through the years, and this situation is yet to change. The different tribes still have conflicts with each other from time to time as dialects and languages also differ within. This does not help in making sure we remain one Nigeria. 

14. Domestic violence

This is harmful, not just to grown-ups, but children too. It is mostly related to alcohol and drug abuse and can lead to severe injuries, in some cases even murder. The victims of domestic violence usually have nowhere to turn to, so they have to endure this mistreatment. 

15. Inequality 

the main part of the country’s population is involved in petty agriculture and earn very little. Only a few chosen people have access to the oil production sector, which brings the biggest income to the country. This leaves the situation as it is – poor people are destined to struggle with poverty, while the rich cannot get enough of their expensive belongings. 


Thanks you for your time on here. I hope to be able to at least half of this least during 2020, so her me energy.

Let’s up on instagram and youtube.

See you on the next blogpost
