Chimamanda says she is drawn to art that reminds her of home.

Listen to the podcast below to see why Flavour’s hit track “Ashawo” and Ben Enwonwu’s “Tutu” conjure up, for her, thoughts and images of home.

There’s no reason why you wouldn’t have heard Flavour’s hit track, but I’ve gone ahead and included the video (and Enwonwu’s Tutu) just in case.

Can you guys seriously picture Chimamanda singing along to Flavour’s music: “Sawa sawa sawa le, sawa sawa sawa le, ashawo?” I actually can 🙂 “Flavour,” she says, “makes me want to dance.”

Have a lovely weekend! Thanks to everyone for such a great week here on Brittle Paper—your visits, your facebook and twitter shares, your comments.
