Welcome to my site. I’m a lecturer in the School of Visual and Performing Arts, Film Unit, and the Department of English at Kwara State University, Malete, in Nigeria. I have a PhD from the Department of African Languages and Literature at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. My research focus is on Hausa-language literature, film, and popular culture, although I am interested in African and postcolonial cultural studies more broadly. I have published in the Journal of African Cinemas, the Journal of African Media Studies, The Global South, Chimurenga Chronic, and the books Silencing Cinema: Film Censorship Around the World; Facts, Fiction and African Creative Imaginations, among others.  From 2010 to 2014, I wrote a weekly column in the Saturday paper of the Nigerian newspaper Daily Trust and have written widely for other popular publications, including some translations from Hausa to English.  To read my blog, to find out more about me, to read my academic writing page or other publications, or to find out about my classes, visit the associated links here or in the header tab. To see some of my photographs, visit my Flickr site or browse through my blog.
