Top 7 Publishing Companies In Nigeria

There is a popular quote that “The best way to hide something from Black people is to put it in a book.” The rhetoric quote is something many of us have heard from our educators, politicians and even parents.
It usually spoken to motivate the younger ones to pick up their books and read. The originators of the quote did so with the belief that Black people do not want to read and possess some personal disposition to prefer ignorance over enlightenment.
This might have been true some years ago, but a lot have changed over the years. With the availability of different forms of media, including free libraries, an individuals unwillingness to read depends on the person and not the tribe.
Blacks around the world are making it in their various fields. A number of them are renowned scholars in the United States and other parts of the world.
Somebody like Philip Emeagwali won the 1989 Gordon Bell Prize for price-performance in high-performance computing applications. He is famous for utilizing the connection machine and 65,536 microprocessors to achieve 3.1 billion calculations per second. That was the fastest computational record as at the time of the invention.
Another prominent African is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the author of the bestselling book, 'Americanah'. She also has other books like 'Purple Hibiscus' and 'Half of a Yellow Sun' to her credit. 'Americanah' sold more tan 500,000 copies while 'Purple Hibiscus' sold more than 100,000 copies.
Looking at the figures above, you'd see that Africans read, and enjoy good books. No one should ever discourage you from publishing by telling you that no one would buy the books. You just have to work with a reputable publishing companies, and with the right marketing strategies, you're book will be sold out.
