Telling Our Own Stories… from 2pm today

West Africa Idol’s Winner Timi Dakolo was on STV’s breakfast show with Adaure yesterday to talk about Farafina Magazine’s Arts and Literature Event.

Thursday evening’s launch of the new book from Farafina, ‘The Architecture of Demas Nwoko’ proved a great success. There was a great turnout, particularly from the architecture and design community.  Present were lots of press and journos, as well as stand-up comic Julius Agwu, Ugoma Ebilah of the couture house Zebra Living, Ambassador Segun Olusola, the renowned Nigerian artist Bruce Onabrakpeya, and also the ‘big’ man himself, Demas Nwoko. 

After a very enjoyable evening, many expressed an interest in Saturday’s event and it is more than likely that most of them will be there.
Again, Farafina stylee, we have a big surprise for you today! But you have to be at Bambuddha at 2pm to discover what it is… 

By the way, we’ve been allowed a sneak preview of the crack photographer Adolphus “Ghestapo” Opara’s pieces which will feature in the visual arts exhibition, and they should be very well received, we’re sure. Bring your chequebook, and take home a future classic!

I can’t help it, I have to divulge it, but you must not tell anyone o! So, here goes… our very own BIYI BANDELE and CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE will be in the crowd at Bambuddha…

So where else would you rather be?

A final point before we meet at Bambudhha… Remember this event is a FARAFINA MAGAZINE event, and so we hope that by the close of the event you will all have your copies of FARAFINA MAGAZINE clutched under your arm or tucked into your handbag. We also expect that you will buy copies (as gift items and also for yourself) of Nnedi Okorafor, Eghosa Imasuen, Jumoke Verissimo, Biyi Bandele and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s books to be autographed.

The leadup to the first Farafina Magazine Visual Arts and Literature Event has been exciting for all of us here at Farafina and the event won’t be complete without YOU.

Here’s wishing you happy holidays and lots of (reflective) enjoyment reading FARAFINA MAGAZINE.
