The post 10 Reasons Why We Love This Nigerian Streetwear Brand appeared first on BellaNaija - Showcasing Africa to the world. Read today!.

Remember that old saying that if you want to hide something from a black man you should put it in a book? Well, we all know now that that one is just rubbish. We love to read!

And publishing in Africa has begun to thrive, publishers pumping out book after book. Our reading culture has gone through the roof, with book clubs meeting in bars and even on social media every weekend.

To make sure some books don’t fly below your radar, to point you toward the right direction, BellaNaija will be bringing one to your notice every month.

This month, we’re recommending to you the Kenyan author Jackson Biko‘s novel Drunk.

In Drunk, Jackson Biko tells the tale of Larry, a Kenyan man whose uninhibited propensity for alcohol consumption takes a disastrous toll on his life.

Through the lens of Larry’s life, Biko takes us through the streets of cities and small towns in Kenya. It is a very small book that takes on the big task of breaking down alcoholism. It is for this reason that Drunk is the BellaNaija Book of the Month.

Burna Boy was recently interviewed on theScore, a US news outlet. The singer hinted in that interview that he has an upcoming song titled, “34”.

“34” was inspired by NBA player, Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is of Nigerian descent.

The singer then went ahead to talk about how difficult it is to make it as a basketballer in the country.

“Only a very select few make it playing basketball and him doing what he does and being directly Nigerian- not even like a distant descendant, that is definitely something to be proud of,” Burna Boy said in the interview.

“When he steps on the court, he’s representing a lot more than he even knows he’s representing and I definitely see myself when I look at him. Anyone from Africa who is on the world stage is a big inspiration to all Africans.”

Burna Boy did not reveal the official release date for the project.
