The Nami Podcast is an anthology podcast of lightly dramatized stories and poetry by West African writers. At TNP our goal is to promote the works of writers and different voice talents. We also seek to bridge the cultural gap between oral narration of stories and writing. In doing this, we find that it is also an excellent way of archiving original works and their expressions in a world where audio publications continues to grow popular. It is our wish that listeners will find it a suitable a channel for enjoyable original African content. We do not specify on genre or theme. We focus mainly on content that has to do with the African story, in whatever form the African writer perceives that to be. The Nami Podcast is a singular project under the umbrella of The Nami Projects, a not-for-profit organisation that runs progressive programmes, to champion the causes of African creative work, featuring projects that cut across various artistic mediums, from painting to literature. What we seek to achieve, beyond the exposure of African creatives to intra-continental and intercontinental markets, is substantial and sustainable growth of the creative and his/her art. We pride ourselves in identifying and nurturing talent, as well as connecting said talent to relevant audiences. In order to do this, together with our partners and patrons, we build platforms and channels, organize events, training programmes, and seek out talent.Welcome to our dream.
