Hello Patreons. This week I have a podcast featuring Abubakar Adam Ibrahim and a Livestream featuring Ondjaki and Philipp Khabo Koepsell.
Podcast episode 19: Abubakar Adam Ibrahim
Our first guest is Abubakar Adam Ibrahim who really should need no introduction if you follow African writing. The Abuja-based Nigerian has written the short story collection The Whispering Trees (2012) and a much-loved debut novel Season of Crimson Blossoms (2015) which won him the Nigerian Literature Prize, the richest in African letters. He has a new short story collection on the way called Dreams and Assorted Nightmarespublished by Masobe Books.
In the episode, we talk about his newest book Dreams and Assorted Nightmares, and discuss the publishing industry in Nigeria.

We learnt about the writing scenes in Black or Afro Germany from Philipp Khabo Koepsell as well as in the Angolan and the wider Lusophone Africa and Africa diaspora from Ondjaki.
