Nigerian Writer

An African author must have his, or her, roots from somewhere with African origin. As stated earlier, a Nigerian writer certainly comes into the realms of being an African author. And when one has written fiction about the history of a people, lived in African societies, mostly within a traditional African setting, surely that would qualify said person as an African author, if some penmaship emanates from such encounters.
