This story is rooted in the Ake Festival held in Abeokuta, Nigeria. In a way the title of this article is a bit misleading. What do writers want to write? What do readers want to read? Where do the writers come from? Where do readers come from? Maybe there are African writers who want to write for a western audience. Nothing wrong with that. Maybe there are western writers writing for African audiences. Nothing wrong or upsetting with that. So many mixes and combinations are available. So many books to be written. So many books to be read.
