Brittle Paper’s very own Ainehi Edoro sat down with the brilliant ladies behind Not Your African Cliché (NYAC) on their latest podcast.

The discussion centered on all our favorite topics: African literature, the African publishing scene, reading culture in Nigeria, Linda Ikeji, Fifty Shades of Grey, and lots more

NYAC is a podcast hosted by Ifeoluwa Olokode, Amayo Bassey, Yeka Ononye, and Ifeyinwa Arinze—all brilliant women doing great things in their respective professional fields. The idea behind the show is both smart and timely. With every podcast, the team of four addresses topical issues concerning the continent in ways that debunk myths and stereotypes about Africa.

Though a relatively young platform, NYAC is already making waves. Earlier this year, the show made Okay Africa’s 6 Hot African Podcasts You Should Be Listening To.

Their most recent podcast featuring Edoro was the last of 15 shows in Season One.

    Listened to your podcast and loved every segment. Literacy in Nigeria is very low as a result of bad policies and religious/ cultural beliefs. But what about the Nigerians who are privileged to get educated? To them the word ” read ” only surfaces in their vocabulary when they have an examination or interview. we need to make them understand that life doesn’t end after school and life long learning is essential to life and career development.
    If Nigerians improve on their reading habits, writers and authors will be encouraged to write more and “local content” would be available for any kind of research.
    The Crater Library http://thecraterlibrary.com/ is striving to encourage authors and creators to write more by creating an easy and fast portal for them to sell and market their e-books and works.
