Shaka Rising Shortlisted for Nommo Award
My comic book Shaka Rising has been shortlisted for a Nommo Award in the Graphic Novel category!
The Nommo’s are a prestigious annual award given to the best speculative fiction authors from across Africa and the diaspora. The awards are organized and voted on by the African Speculative Fiction Society (ASFS), and the winners for 2019 will be announced at a ceremony at the Ake Festival in October in Lagos, Nigeria.
This nomination is a great honour and I am extremely grateful for the recognition and positive feedback that Shaka Rising is receiving. I wish the best of luck to all nominees!
You can check out the shortlists for all categories at the ASFS website, here.
The sequel, King Shaka: Zulu Legend will also be released later this year, so watch this space!
