“I have high hopes for women in the African literary sector. Right now, there are a lot more female authors making waves and putting out amazing content than there were when I was a child. I can confidently project that this number will only increase over time. The stories they tell are also very valid and true to the loved experiences of African girls and women. Books like His Only Wife, Ogadinma, Stay With Me and The First Woman are books that need to get into the hands of African girls and women everywhere.
I am also hopeful about women in the positions to push these books, like the publishers and marketers. Right now, we have few Nigerian publishing houses owned or run by women, but I’m sure that more and more women will take up spaces in this industry and shake the status quo.”
