On today’s show, we explore the publishing industry in Africa. We start by understanding the different types of publishers in the industry. We know of traditional publishers mostly from the movies and the internet but don’t have contact with most of these companies here in Africa. Self-publishing is also gaining popularity amongst most authors as it is the only option available for most as well as Vanity publishers which seem to be popping up. Which option is best for African authors and which one should they be wary of. We then look at the opportunities available in the publishing industry for entrepreneurs looking to invest as well as internet platforms which can be used by self-publishing authors to design, publish and monetize their books. Our interview is with Chinwe Okoli a woman who is passionate about youth and entrepreneur development in Nigeria and who has also written two books aimed at helping youth and entrepreneurs utilize their time and efforts better.
