Igbo Books, Merchandise, News and Media from around the Web

What is Nwudo.com?
It’s really simple, actually. I had been complaining for a really long time that it was really difficult for me to find Black stuff online. All of my searches were misleading. Searches for “Black hair care” led me to people of various ethnicities with dark colored hair. Searches for Black photography for blog images led me to Black and white photographs of (again) people of varying ethnicities. The majority of the time, online searches are far from helpful. So, I decided to create a way to collecting my favorite Black resources from the web together in one place and share with others who might be struggling with the same issues as well. Nwudo.com thus became a place for me to share resources as well as connect people in a way that encourages them to support one another in a healthy way.
Nwudo, LLC is a Limited Liability Company that I formed with the intent to create a structure around encouraging Africans, both on-continent and in-diaspora, to embrace their identity, control their destiny, and transform their environments for the new age.
I started with creating books, and merchandise with empowering messages to encourage and uplift my community. On my YouTube channel, I did tutorials and lessons to help my subscribers reach their goals. And on my Twitter and Instagram Social Media accounts, I interacted directly with my fans about their personal needs.
My primary objective on the outset of defining the Nwudo brand was to develop content to empower my fans to feel confident in who they are and to help them to achieve their goals in business and in life.
On a more creative level, I have been telling the stories of African people for African people. I have written books (both fiction and non-fiction) as well as screenplays. My long term goal is to have my stories translated into African languages. After all, if my stories are for Africans, wouldn’t it make sense for these stories to be catered to them in this very special way.
My deepest value is in African-centered literacy for Africans. What I mean is that, people are always talking about literacy rates in Africa, but they don’t talk about it in terms of African languages. After all, it is the Western languages, like English, French, German, etc. that are used to in business, science, etc. God willing, I want to commit my life encouraging African-centered literacy, i.e. Africans reading and writing and speaking in their own native languages. For me, that begins to creating African literature in African languages.

Mission Summary: I believe the world is big enough for everybody to enjoy it’s abundance and we all have to learn to work together not taking away from each other, but complimenting each other, because when everybody feels empowered, everybody wins. I think some of the biggest problems we face in the world today comes from an imbalance of power. It is impossible for two people to see things eye-to-eye when they are not on level playing field. So, I think when everybody feels like they are living to their full potential, everybody is encouraged to help each other fairly. That is why I love the blockchain system that we are moving into. That is why I love the information age. These are some of the things I hope to encourage Africans to take advantage of.
Originally, I wanted to be an African brand, then a Nigerian brand, but recently I decided to begin with and focus on being an Igbo brand, because I don’t know enough about all the other ethnic groups in Africa to do them the justice they deserve.
So, here I am, doing the best I can to serve and uplift my community.
I hope you enjoy what I have to offer.
