Close of Submissions
It has been a whirlwind two weeks from the 1st-15th October as we publicised and collated submissions from the #IKnowaNigerianStar Writing Competition; the first of its kind from konnectafrica.net.
Entries closed 15th October as scheduled and we now face the daunting and humbling task of reading through 180 entries; great tales of unsung heroes from the north, east, south and west…it is amazing!!! Thank you so much for investing the time, energies and intellect to participate in celebrating your stars…a few stories have made my eyes sting with tears I tell you. You guys rock!!!
I do not envy the trio of Chika Oduah, Alibaba Akporobome and Bola Essien-Nelson who have the task of deciding who the top 5 are…they are not to be envied I tell ya.
Till the 1st of November then, keep shining Nigerians!!!
