by Ijeoma on September 2, 2013


Welcome to the African Lit Nollywood Hit podcast!

nollywood, african literature, african lit, african films, nigerian films, nigerian movies

This podcast developed out of two hobbies of mine – reading and watching movies. Yes, very simplistic 🙂 More specifically, the podcast is dedicated to exploring African culture through books written by and about Africans and films acted and produced by Africans about Africa or Africans.

Africans having been writing for quite a long time but I only recently started reading African literature and now I wonder what took me so long to get on the bandwagon.

With regard to film section of the podcast, I will be focusing on Nollywood films but since there is a lot of good stuff being produced by other African countries not typically recognized as “Nollywood” I will also review those as well.

This podcast is those who enjoy reading African literature as well those who like to read but have not yet discovered this genre. It is also for Nollywood movie fans like me, who enjoy watching and discussing these films. My hope is that this podcast will inspire you to pick up a book by an author you’re introduced to right here and on the days where you don’t feel like reading, I hope it will encourage you to turn on a Nollywood movie and enjoy a different type of cinematic experience.

My goal is to produce this show on a weekly basis, and, as I am able to, also do some guest interviews and have guest co-hosts on the show with me from time to time. You can download the podcast to your computer or listen to it right here on the website.  You’ll find the links to perform either one of these actions at the top of every post. Additionally, I submit the podcast feed to iTunes, so you can subscribe there as well and listen on the go. There’s also a handy button on this page that you can use to subscribe to my iTunes feed.

Your feedback is extremely important to me so please don’t hesitate to leave comments on my blog posts. If there are particular books or Nollywood movies that you would like to hear reviewed on the podcast, please feel free to use the contact form to submit your suggestions to me.
