Well it’s not just about literature that we talk about, interestingly ÌYÀNDÁ by Ayodeji Makinde, an indigenous comic book caught our fancy. Culture and tradition set in ancient times, takes centre stage in this beautiful piece of work. By the way for non-Yoruba folks, ÌYÀNDÁ means- ‘A Selected Being’. It tells the story about the village inhabitants, their way of life and how a rigged mindset can debar people from keying into a better life. The comic was published on lulu.com and is available as an e-book.
Hmm…pretty cool…let’s support our very own…shall we?
