‘Tani’ is the Yoruba word for the phrase ‘Who is…?’ The word is a conversation starter. When you think about the contributions of Nigerians to the world, you often wonder, ‘Who is a Nigerian making strides in music, science, business etc?’ With the series, I want to spark such conversations and answer some of those questions. Tani Series is not just a work of cultural history. It is a celebration of notable Nigerians, of the dedication and passion with which they charted paths in their diverse fields, and of the wonderful achievements they made. My desire is that young Nigerians will see themselves represented in these books and be inspired to dream and build big like.
