Chief Synner: Ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to the SyncityNG Literary Lords and Ladies show! Today’s guest needs no introduction but I’ll introduce him anyway. His novel, Season of Crimson Blossoms, was published in 2015 by @Parresiabooks and @CassavaRepublic. It won the NLNG prize in 2016.

In 2014 he was selected for the Africa39 list of writers aged under 40 with potential and talent to define future trends in African literature and was included in the anthology Africa39: New Writing from Africa South of the Sahara (ed.
