The stories presented by this year’s shortlist are as dynamic and entertaining as last year when Pemi Aguda shocked us with the man-eating religious sect, Adeola Opeyemi gripped us with the devastating horrors of war, Dayo Ntwari thrilled us with his Sci-Fi story of a rescue mission gone awry, Saaleha Bhamjee soothed us with dialogue-packed story of love and contradictions and Nnedinma Jane Kalu broke our hearts with her haunting tale of new fathers that left us teary-eyed.

"I think life happens to writers and you have to embrace it. If I was a disciplined writer, I probably would have thirty books not a dozen. Well life happens and we have to embrace it. We write about life. We don’t write about writing. It’s not a tragedy if you have to have a career, if you have to have a family. These are all parts of life. This is what gives writing flavour." - Chuma Nwokolo

"Social media allows individuals to control the self-presentational messages they exchange with others. It is easy to pretend to be someone you aren’t. Through selective self-presentation, individuals can choose certain identity cues, can curate a desired impression; however, the constant demands to perform ourselves undermines our ability to attain a surer sense of who we are and where we belong, because the dictum is show thyself, not know thyself." - Richard Oduor Oduku
