Aké Arts & Book Festival is five days of cultural immersion. As is always the case, Aké Arts and Book Festival aims to showcase the very best of contemporary African literature, poetry, music, art, film and theatre. It’s interesting to note that this year’s festival ( sixth edition) will take place for the very first time in Lagos!
