Providing well-detailed research on how parenting has gone wrong can destroy an entire community and not just a household, even though she used fathers in the title of the novel she brought out the role of mothers too, as many mothers hold families, communities and nations together.
A few months later, the multifaceted and award-winning author has announced the release of a new novel titled “Africa and The African,” and already the title of the novel is causing a stir and book lovers have expressed their interest in getting exclusive reads ahead of the release date. She has set the release date to December, in Ghana before taking it across selected African countries and the rest of the world.
Hence, she will host a press launch in Ghana and other parts of Africa to release the book. “Africa And The African” explores the amazing continent of Africa, the beauties and the challenges that lie ahead and how those challenges can be solved now using the beautiful things Africa has.
“My novel come from deeper research and sometimes from the listening to what is happening around us, the continent of Africa has a lot to offer from human to natural resources. This by now, almost everyone including a kid born today can attest to.
But, the problem is getting every African to rely on behind a good leader and agree to follow the same path with that leader,” she told us on the phone while throwing brief light on the book. She said she picked the good works of past leaders that devoted their entire lives to changing the image of the continent for good, but, couldn’t arrive at anything good.
And each year, the continent seems to be going back into bigger problems. There’s are a lot of resources on the continent that can be tapped and put to good use, from gold, cocoa, diamond to timber, each year, the continent discover something new that can help Africans, however, those beautiful things are sold to the outsiders, and they have rather taking over the continent.
“This novel took all the steam and energy out of me because it’s coming from a place of years of research, taking historians and many other well-vexed professors and people to find a permanent solution and the present that solution in the novel.
It’s not just a novel you will pick and read, have a good laugh and learn something and then place it somewhere, no, it will challenge everyone with Africa at heart to take matters of the continent very serious.”
A couple of the countries have seen these problems and are fixing them but, it should be a collective effort from every African.
The “Africa And The African” takes a different approach to the information that every African needs to always keep the continent in the mind, Stacy pointed that out during the phone conversation.
She wished that every media personality, outlet and well-meaning African will help spread the message in the novel to touch the right people to take Africa seriously and start working.
“Yes, I will be happy if this book will be in every single African country but that can only happen if everyone comes on board.
I will continue to put matters of the continent first, and only hopes that we can all sit, draw a long term developmental plan for the continent, the time is now, to work on that for the next generation to continue.” She concluded.
The leaders and citizens can’t afford to sleep, the time is now for every single soul of the continent to rise and get to work.
