Boycott Kaduna Book And Arts Festival Says Award-Winning Author Of Satans and Shitans

You have probably heard about the upcoming KABAF 2017 Literary Festival. If you haven’t, here’s a summary.  It is the biggest literary festival in Kaduna state. What’s more? The state governor, Mallam Nasir El Rufai is flying in the most influential literary authors . There will be readings, a special creative writing workshop for women and even literary grants and awards.

But just as we were preparing to attend, many authors, home and abroad sent out warnings, urging authors to boycott the literary event. Pa Ikhidie Ikheloa sent out his warning on Medium.

Award-Winning Author Of Satans and Shitans, Obinna Udenwe gave out the same warnings too.

Below are snapshots of his warning recently published on olisa.tv.

    Obinna does have a good point. Most of our politicians talk before they think of the implications of their words. Well, I had no plan to attend in the first place but my verdict is that the KABAF 2017 will still hold – successfully even. because there are many hungry authors out there who are looking for even the slimmest of opportunities to showcase themselves.
