ake arts and book festival gets underway

It has begun.

The new edition of the Ake Arts and Book Festival. May writers and artist from all over the world have descended upon Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria. The new government of former general Buhari does not seen to have a perspective on the arts, but this gives an opportunity to have freedom and not be boxed in by the government.
