Back to blogging regularly, + recent work

It’s Independence Day in Nigeria, fifty two years since the British handed over.

I’ll be blogging regularly from now on.

This blog is delighted to be a member of the newly-launched Guardian Africa Network

Below are links to some of the work I’ve been doing lately:

ONGOING CONCERNS, my weekly column for YNaija

For Wings Magazine, on the filming of Chimamanda Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun in Calabar, Nigeria

For Wings Magazine, on an Africa-inspired Olympics

For CNN, on how mobile phones are changing lives in Africa

For NSFW Corp, on the Nigerian obsession with American presidential elections (and octogenarian godfathers) (subscription required)

Inaugural blog (first of 12) for the Caine Prize

Er, How Many Nigerians Does It Take To Change A Light Bulb

My first piece for Publishing Perspectives [a brand new international publishing newsletter, edited by Ed Nawotka] is here. It’s a report from the recently concluded Guardian Hay Festival 2009 in Hay-on-Wye, Wales. I have just come on board as a correspondent, and will be contributing regularly, especially on issues relating to Publishing on the African Continent.
