Correspondents got together at the NMAs, Saturday 12 August. This line-up includes Ebun Olatoye of True Love Magazine (W. Africa); Nkiru Ogbuokin of the Washington Post; and for The Guardian, Tunde Oyedoyin and myself.
Steve Ayorinde (Above left & below) of The Punch Newspapers, Lagos, Nigeria is temporarily based in the UK and corresponds with his arts constituency back home. We decided to take a break from the usual press stuff, and follow the example of the music stars - to strike a pose.
I am a writer and arts journalist now based in Lagos. This is a blog on arts and culture. The focus is on Nigeria's art scene, especially her 'Word's Body' - the writers. As and when, we'll also touch on wider African writing, as well as international literature. In short, a saturation of the arts.
