Hosted by Isabella Akinseye, award winning essayist, writer and On Air Personality, is the host of the programme.

Speaking on African Literati, Akinseye who is also the brain behind the project, said, “Africana Literati TV show is aimed at reviving the reading culture with a focus on celebrating our own stories and culture.”

Speaking further, she said, “We have very few art shows out there. Abroad, arts and culture are a big deal, but here in Nigeria, it is politics, music, sports, reality and fashion. Africana Literati is making reading and learning cool. On each episode, culture critic, Dr. Wilfred Okiche reviews a book by an African author and budding OAP, Harri Obi handles the vox pop segment. I go back to my education roots on the ‘Back to School’ segment which focuses on spelling, pronunciation and African slang.”

The 13-episodes series, with each episode running for half an hour, includes profiles of African literary greats, top 5 countdowns, African proverbs and giveaways to nurture budding writing talent.
