Spotlight On: Chibundu Onuzo

Our friends at Sputnik have been hosting Zoom talk/Q&A events with featured artists who are breaking ground in their industry. We thought you might be interested in joining to hear from Chibundu Onuzo. 

Chibundu Onuzo is an award-winning Nigerian author, whose debut novel The Spider King’s Daughter was published at age 17. Her second effort, Welcome to Lagos, emerged in 2017 to critical acclaim. The next year, she staged an autobiographical multi-media show tiled 1991 at the London Literature Festival.

So far, Chibundu’s work has not shied away from the tensions of culture shock, racism, the social pressures on successful women, or any number of issues familiar to the Nigerian diaspora or others besides. Her novels manage to be nuanced, challenging, entertaining and funny in one fell swoop. We’re absolutely thrilled to have Chibundu joining us to talk about her career so far, her artistic approach, and how faith informs her life.

There'll also be a chance to throw your best questions at Chibundu, so come prepared!

What is Sputnik?
Sputnik is a network of artists who identify as Christian, but don’t make ‘Christian art’.

All around the UK and beyond, Sputnik artists are making art that enriches us all, making art that is full blooded and honest and making art that can help heal our divided culture.

We operate out of the Catalyst Network, but we work with artists and churches of every denomination and culture.
