The Most Powerful Books in My Life


The 6 Most Important Powerful Books I Have Read

I cannot count the numbers of the books I have read since I started reading books of both nonfiction and fiction. I have read all of William Shakespeare in one big collection, most of Wole Soyinka, Chinua Achebe, Cyprian Ekwensi, Elechi Amadi, Isdore Okpewho, Ken Saro-Wiwa, Ben Okri and other Nigerian authors. I have read many books by English authors in my teens and twenties in the 1980s when we had a vibrant reading culture in Nigeria. Reading was a competition among Nigerian youths with the popular African Writers Series of Heinemann, Drumbeat Series of Longman and Pacesetters Series of Macmillan, including several books by Evans and University Press. I also read books by several African authors, including Camara Laye, Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o, Steve Biko and others.  Reading western novels of Harold Robbins, James Hadley Chase, Nick Carter, Barbara Cartland and others  was a popular addiction for us. And presents of new books were among the best gifts we exchanged. I was known for giving books to girlfriends. Reading books also made many of us to start writing our own books, inspired by our famous award winning writers: Amos Tutuola; Prof. Wole Soyinka, the first black Nobel laureate in Literature; Chinua Achebe; Cyprian Ekwensi; J.P. Clark; Christopher Okigbo; Gabriel Okara; John Munonye;  Mabel Segun, Flora Nwakpa, Buchi Emecheta, Nkem Nwankwo,  Onuora Nzekwu, T M. Aluko, Elechi Amadi,  Kólé Omotosho, Eddie Iroh, Isdore Okpewho, Festus Iyayi and others. Among the new generation of outstanding Nigerian writers, Ben Okri, the youngest winner of the highly coveted Booker Prize, published his first novel, "Flowers and Shadows" at 19 in 1980 and won the Booker Prize at the age of 32 in 1991.

Video:Exclusive Interview with Tomi Adeyemi, Author of "Children of Blood and Bone"


I think we just all love good stories. I think, especially if you come into a place like Comic-Con, you see every type of person, you see every age, and when the story is good, it doesn’t’ matter where you’re from. Because at the end, we’re all humans, which sounds very kumbayah, but it’s just true. If you can tell a very human story, people are going to connect with that. If you can tell a human story with like really cool magic, then people are going to connect with that and really love it. And that’s why we have a whole generation named after Harry Potter. I think that’s really what it does – it’s very human, and that’s what I always try to do, too, because when I’m reading a book – I actually have a very short attention span and I’m a slow reader, so I know I have to feel like I’m really in it and really connected and so I try and write for that person.

Yes, you’re going to have a lot of magic and you’re going to have a lot of complicated stuff, but you don’t even need to see most of that stuff. And I hate reading about it, so I’m not going to tell you about it until you absolutely need to know. It’s this big fantasy, but it’s not so up its own butt with being a fantasy. It’s still a very human story. It just happens to take place with really cool magic and giant lions. ~ Tomi Adeyemi, Bestselling author of the children's fantasy novel, Children of Blood and Bone. The novel was an instant #1 on The New York Times Bestsellers List for Young Adult Books.
"Children of Blood and Bone" has been acquired for film adaptation by Fox 2000 and Temple Hill Productions in the United States of America (USA).

AFRIFF 2018: "Azali" Did Not Deserve The Award For Best Feature Film


2018 Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF): "Azali" Did Not Deserve The Award For Best Feature Film

Jahmil X. T. Qubeka's "Sew the Winter to My Skin" should have won the award for the Best Feature Film in addition to the award for Best Director.
Kwabena Gyansah's "Azali" cannot be compared to "Sew the Winter to My Skin" in all the requirements for Best Picture, except for Best Original Story.
"Azali" looks more like a good #Nollywood home video while "Sew the Winter to My Skin" can compete with the best films in #Hollywood.

Chukwudozie: A Salute to Dexterity and Humility


Chukwudozie: A Salute to Dexterity and Humility

- By Ingram Osigwe


As pregnancy is insuppressible so is a good man; his good works, his kind and large heart. This assertion finds meaning in Chief (Sir) Daniel Chukwudozie's life trajectory. This shrewd industrialist wears no air and exudes non; he is as simple as air itself. He exudes a calm ambience that belies his war chest, yet the more he tries to remain unassuming by avoiding the spotlight, the more his selfless service to humanity and God; his kind and golden heart lay him bare and drag him to the public arena for recognition.

TALK OF THE TOWN: "Children of Blood and Bone" Brings Young Nigerian American Writer Fame and Fortune


This African mystical fantasy novel for young readers, Children of Blood and Bone is currently the talk of the town for becoming an instant bestseller and #1 on the New York Times' Bestsellers List and for the sensational false accusation of plagiarism against famous romance novelist, Nora Roberts by the Harvard educated Nigerian American author, Tomi Adeyemi.
The awesome book, published on March 6, 2018, by Henry Holt Books for Young Readers has attracted more accolades for Adeyemi than the bestselling novels of Chimamanda Ngozi-Adichie, the most popular Nigerian American writer.


Adeyemi has already secured a seven figure contract for the film adaptations of her trilogy reported as one of the biggest movie deals in film adaptations of books since British author, J. K. Rowling's "Harry Potter".

Female Narratives in Nollywood Melodramas


Female Narratives in Nollywood Melodramas: Elizabeth Johnson, Donald Culverson
Click here to order for the book.

This book investigates how identities for West African women are created and recreated through the broad interplay of Nollywood film viewing on social and individual levels. Since many Nollywood films are freely accessible online, the role of online communities repurposes Nollywood films. Female Narratives in Nollywood Melodramas addresses if this is a good or bad promoter of critical consciousness, as many of the films depict the stifling of women. The authors examine nine Nollywood melodramas through Black feminist, cultivation, audience reception, and social identity theories. Readers will gain an understanding of how Nollywood is a product and contributor to evolving processes of globalization. Recommended for scholars of film studies, communication, African studies, and women studies.
