2017 and the books that shaped it

The books that shaped my 2017 are mostly political books. It was a conscious collection of classic Nigerian literature from some of the most celebrated writers in the country.

Thank you to Ena Otaigbe, my cousin’s husband who bore the pain to bring my long-waiting bags of books in Lagos to Johannesburg. I bought a few more while on a short trip to Lagos and Accra in July and September.

2017 was basically a year of political consciousness. The fact that I have just a module to complete my postgrad gave room for reading and exploring other interesting stuff ranging from art and craft, politics, and business. So far, it’s been a year filled with wonderful experiences while looking forward to 2018 with positive hope that it shall be a year of more success and goodness. Happy New Year 2018!
