We are thrilled to announce that two renowned writers, Ukamaka Olisakwe and Abubakar Adam Ibrahim, have joined the Masobe Books family.
Ukamaka and Abubakar are important voices in Nigerian literature because they have used their craft to entertain, and boldly interrogate questionable social and cultural norms. For us at Masobe, it is beautiful that their immediate dreams and synergies align with ours, and that they have trusted us with their treasured words.
Ukamaka Olisakwe’s work has appeared in Catapult, The New York Times,The Rumpus, Longreads, Rattle, Brittle Paper and elsewhere. Her eagerly-anticipated novel, ‘Ogadinma’ has been described as a modern feminist classic-in-the-making and will be published in Nigeria by
Masobe Books in 2020 (to coincide with its publication in the UK).
Abubakar Adam Ibrahim, the “literary provocateur”, is a journalist and writer (with multiple global fellowships, awards, and prizes under his
belt). In 2020, he will gift the world ‘Dreams and Assorted Nightmares’ his second collection of short stories, which retain his signature
majestic prose and storytelling prowess.
