nigerian prize for literature

Only a few writers are able to live by the books they are writing. Many writers have to find an opportunity to find an hour in the wee hours to write a few more lines for their next publication. They sell a few books, but the money they receive in the end is like a hardship allowance. 

A literary prize (with a hefty lump of money attached to it) can be the rainbow on a rainy day. It can help to find time tom write your next book.

Here you find the story of an important literary prize in Nigeria.
