We are thrilled that we have been able to attract some of the most exciting names in contemporary African literature to join our Valentine’s Day project. Established writers Toni Kan, Sarah Ladipo Manyika, Binyavanga Wainaina and Chuma Nwokolo are joined by Africa 39ers Abubakar Adam Ibrahim, Edwige-Renée Dro and Hawa Jande Golakai. Seven talented translators, including Chikodili Emelumadu, Kola Tubosun, author and visual artist Victor Ehikhamekor and Tanzanian author Elieshi Lema, have contributed to the initative. And the seductive tones of well-known literary figures including Mukoma wa Ngugi, Elnathan John, Yemisi Aribisala, Eghosa Imasuen and Helene Cooper bring the stories to life in their wonderful audio recordings.
