Onyeka and the Academy of the Sun

By Tolá Okogwu (Author), Nneka Okoye (Narrator)

Onyeka’s unruly afro hair has always made her feel different, but when she learns that it has psychokinetic super powers, everything changes. Nneka Okoye deftly switches between British and Nigerian accents, even using Pidgin English, adding authentic flair for listeners that pulls them even further into this story of self-discovery and acceptance.
