Episode 158: To Tour a Nation with Pelu Awofeso

Greetings Glocal Citizens!

This week on the podcast, it’s another gem of a conversation that started at the Pa Gya! Literary Festival in Accra. My guest, Nigerian geologist turned journalist, Pelu Awofeso and I met in passing between his moderating sessions and communing with fellow writers. Pelu has made it his mission to promote local and international awareness of Nigerian arts, culture and traditional architecture, among other national assets, especially as they relate to or impact on domestic tourism. His writings have appeared in the Sunday Mirror, Lonely Planet,_ Kinfolk_,_ World Policy Journal_,_ Africa Today_,_ Africa in Words_, LOJEL, 234Next and The Sowetan, among many others. He has published five travel books all focused on his experiences traveling in Nigeria (and Africa).

A winner of the CNN/Multichoice African Journalists Awards in tourism reporting, in late 2019, Pelu was also named the Best Travel Journalist in Nigeria by Nigeria Travel Week. He is currently at work on a documentary on one of Africa's pioneer indigenous missionaries and first Black bishop of the Anglican Church, Samuel Ajayi Crowther (1809-91). When he is not traveling or writing, he divides his time between attending creative arts events in Lagos or working as a city guide to tourists.
