IMG_4054A BBC Radio 4 feature on Nigerian writing today, with a focus on the diverse ways in which Nigerian writers are interrogating identity, aired today at 12.30pm Lagos Time. The theme was Ideas of Identity.

Along with other contemporary Nigerian writers, I was interviewed on my work in Yorùbá and on the dearth of literature in the local language in the country today.

You can listen to it here. The programme was produced by Jeremy Grange (who himself is passionate about the resurgence of local languages – Welsh in particular – in his native country), recorded in September 2015, and narrated by Wana Udobang.
