Chimamanda Adichie, Uzodinma Iweala and a bunch of other amazing writers are proof that Nigerian books deserve a spot on the big screen.

23-year-old Tomi Adeyemi’s debut fantasy novel, ‘Children of Blood and Bone’ recently got signed by Fox 2000 – which means another Nigerian adapted film will hit the cinemas real soon!

The Black Lives Matter- inspired book (which is not even published yet), tells the story of a little girl, Zelie Adebola and her stand against oppression.

While details of the film are still unknown, we can only wait impatiently to see how great this film turns out.
