C. Hub ICON blue simple cover

Ace Nigerian Author Ibitola Ojoye – Adebayo graces the cover of the flagship issue of C. hub magazine – THE ICONS issue which features great pioneers and creative champions of this era. The bestselling author of ‘Acceptance and Acceptance into the darkness,’ a book to soon be adapted into a feature film, tells us exclusively of her stumbling into writing, her early days in Nigeria. An experience she said was instrumental to shaping who she is today. Born in England and was taken home to study and learn the cultures of the land, Ibitola resented her mum for that, however, her Nigerian parents knew exactly what they wanted for her. Her mum continued to send her novels and books to keep busy. Today that simple mum gesture has become instrument to an Internationally acclaimed, award winning ace author . Read the exclusive interview on this issue.
Featured also are the ICONS who have given up on their comfort to make sure that Africans’ story, creativity and heritage are told in a way to give value, dignity and enthusiasm to the narrative of Africans and Black people as a race. They are – Sherry Ann Dixon, Dr Alistair Soyode (Founder BEN TV) Menelik Shabazz (founder Black FilmMakers International Film Festival) and Anyiam Osigwe (founder BUFF) .
