Ellen Banda and Pius Adesanmi Wiin Penguin Prize for African Writing
After spending exciting weeks in my village, Nigeria (No light, not internet connection), I am happy to resume this blog with the exciting news of my friend, Pius Adesanmi, winning the inaugural Penguin Prize for African writing, in the Non-fiction category. The other winner, in the fiction category, is Ellen Aaku, from Zambia.
Read Sahara Reporters' report on this. ENJOY!
