Interview with Muhtar Bakare, a former banker who gave up his banking career to start a publishing press in Nigeria. His reason? Simple – he felt Nigerians were not publishing enough fiction works. He has since published books by Nigerian authors including Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (her novel Purple Hibiscus, was the first book published by Bakare’s publishing company Farafina).
He has also published books by other authors such as Ben Okri and Eghosa Imasuen.
