Guess who finally got round to editing and sharing more about her Ake Festival experience. You get just one guess :)
My original post, which is a bit of a picture heavy recap is here, if you'd like to read that as well.
The video is short and (hopefully) fun, so I hope you watch, enjoy, and most importantly, subscribe and share! I have about 3 weeks left to get to 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watched hours on Youtube or my channel loses the capacity to make money,
Books, music and travel. These are a few of the things that make my life a better place. A love for these three things is one of the best gifts my parents ever gave me, so I was thrilled to be able to go to my hometown for Ake Festival, which is an annual arts and books festival. This year's theme was "This F-Word." Yup, we're not tired of talking about feminism.
If you're subscribed, you know in my last newletter I promised to give you all the Festival gist, so here it is! If you're not subscribed, you should be!! :)
I was invited to Ake by the amazing convener, Lola Shoneyin, to host a book chat with two amazing authors, Dayo Olopade and Alexis Okeowo, both of whom wrote non-fiction books: The Bright Continent (Dayo) and A Moonless, Starless Sky (Alexis). I've linked both books, so please take a look and support by buying: I promise they are worth it!
