BBC Radio 4 is releasing a series of dramatised readings of some of Nigeria’s most compelling literature. The dramatisations are part of the program, Nsukka is Burning, Reading the Globe: Nigeria which explores how Nsukka has become a “creative hotspot” for prolific voices in African literature. Among the highlighted novels are Chimamanda Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun and Chinua Achebe’s No Longer at Ease. Beyond the works of these Nsukka indigenes, Oyinkan Braithwaite’s My Sister, The Serial Killer and Helon Habila’s Oil on Water were also featured.
