According to Chika Unigwe, a Nigerian writer, founder, and creative director of Awele Creative Trust (ACT), “The longlist is made up of 10 writers whose stories impressed the quality of writing, and some of the writers’ willingness to take risks (and successfully so).”

The longlisted writers include Daniel Ogba for Mockingbird, Ifeoma Aroh for Uloma, Nnamdi Vin-Anuonye for I Hope You Dance, Osahon Izeiyamu for Me, a Catalyst; Godwin Adah for Shine Shine Bobo, Cole Olasubomi for How to Love You Again, Michael Emmanuel for Everything Ends in Cycles, Chinenye Anwunah for Mirror on the Wall, Rafiat Lamidi for Traveller, and Akunna James-Ibe for Ndubuisi.
