She took to her Facebook page to talk about the forthcoming show...
Presenting #CHAPTERS Promo.

I will tell the story of this whole project someday soon.
But today, I am very excited to present to you #CHAPTERS Promo.
Its been a long time coming, a journey of life and destiny, and finally its set to birth.
I thank everyone who has been a part of this journey (An Epistle on that coming up).
Some ask- "Why this show"? What inspired it?
Because knowledge is power, knowledge changes lives and this is my little contribution to bring knowledge to society in a different way.
How? By talking about matters of life and living through documented accounts. Learning from peoples experiences or their own wealth of knowledge.
Learning through books, so that as you watch you can also be inspired to get a copy of a book and learn.
This project was inspired by a book!
Books are powerful, the knowledge contained in a books can change an entire generation. And for almost every subject matter (if not all), there is a book (several books) written on it.
The popular saying goes- “If you want to hide something from a black man, put it in a book”.
Personally I do not agree with that, and one of the reasons this show was birth is to change that narrative.
So #CHAPTERS is not just a show about books, authors, reading etc.
It’s about idea dissemination, mind renewal, knowledge application.
Its about learning, growing, becoming.
Its about helping one another to become better and live to the fullest of our potential.
It's about Development Communication
It's about Life & Living

In Season 1 we have explored different kinds of themes and subject matters in areas such as;
  • Pain
  • Leadership
  • Womanhood
  • Finance
  • Failure
  • Conscious Living
  • Resolutions
  • Parenting
  • Wedding 
  • Money
  • Marriage & Divorce
Here is a promo video of the show


Congrats!
