Ekaabo . . . Welcome 😀

 

From the dawn of time itself, African folktales have been passed from generation to generation – in a way that’s almost as timeless as the stories that have survived through the same centuries.

Where once the village fire was the lynchpin to the fables spoken around it and from adult to child, author Segilola Salami now uses the written word to do the same – with first novel Yetunde: The Life and Times of a Yoruba girl in London.

With the rise of digital media in this most technological of ages, Segilola goes against the grain and vanguards traditional storytelling through Yetunde. In the same way that African folktales have helped prepare young people for their life ahead, so does the novel by the way of life as seen through the eyes of 6-month-old Yetunde.

With interest mounting from Nollywood investors, all talks are still open and enquiries still welcome for those wishing to turn the books into a 3D animation.

Who is Segilola Salami?

Segilola Salami is a mom from south London who intrinsically knows the heartfelt stories woven through her novels. With an undeniable heritage and unwavering passion to pass on the tales, she began compiling African stories to tell her own then-newborn daughter.

Even in these heady times of increasing success, Segilola stays true to both her roots and passion for writing. She works as a freelance writer and can write articles on almost any topic you need. She is also available to hold book reading events and give creative writing workshops to those budding writers that wish to follow in her footsteps. Similarly, she is now available to take speaking engagements and write custom pieces for enquiring publications.

Since releasing her first book Yetunde: The Life and Times of a Yoruba Girl in London (1) in 2015, Segilola Salami has now written a number of other books. She even started her own podcast show in 2016 called The Segilola Salami Show.

The Segilola Salami Show is a podcast show about books and publishing. The aim of the show is to be both educative and informative in an entertaining way. If you would like to be a guest on the show or be in the audience when the show is being recorded, then please get in touch now.

What can you expect from Segilola Salami’s blog?

As Segilola Salami is a Yoruba lady by tribe, and she actually loves Yoruba culture, you will see posts and articles on her blog relating to the Yoruba culture. Segilola is a mother (and a proud one at that), so it goes without saying that she would write about being a parent and her journey in this sisterhood called being a mother. Being a parent is by default a difficult job but as a lone parent, blogging helps Segilola retain her sanity. So fingers crossed you will enjoy reading posts about the highs and lows of her day. Segilola loves helping other entrepreneurs/authorpreneurs and anyone who reaches out to her, so you will see business related posts too. And finally, as an author and one who wishes she had more time to read books by other authors, she writes about new authors she discovers in the hope that you may enjoy reading their books.
