Hello and Welcome! I am so glad you are here. Did you know 'Soma Nami' is Swahili for 'Read With Me'? I invite you to join me on this journey as I explore and rediscover African Literature.
A couple of years ago, I came to the realisation that growing up, i only ever read Western centric books - Sweet Valleys, Nancy Drews, Sidney Sheldons e.t.c. - almost to the point that it had me believing that we, Africans, cannot write.
So I set out on a journey to read more books by African authors and i was pleasantly surprised at how rich our literature is. I am still on this journey and so glad that you take it with me.
I would love to hear from you, please feel free to comment on posts and reviews, send me an email at or connect with me on Instagram
