All about art curation and creation
As we come to the end of the year, Ayamba LitCast closes 2021 with a Meet & Greet that will answer every hobbyist and aspiring pro’s biggest question — how to get paid for your craft. For Ayamba Meet & Greet: December Edition, we introduce Sada Malumfashi and Khalid Abdullahi.
Meet our Guests
Our first guest is the writer and literary curator, Sada Malumfashi. As a fellow of the Goethe Institut-Sylt Foundation Writing Residency and Reporters Without Borders Germany Scholarship Program, Sada has been able to really hone his craft.
Lolwe, Bakwa, Transition and New Orleans Review all carry his works of fiction, while his essays and creative nonfiction appear or are forthcoming in The Africa Report, Saraba Magazine, This Is Africa, Bakwa Magazine, Music in Africa and more.
Sada is the founder of Open Arts and the curator of Hausa International Book and Arts Festival (HIBAF). Find him on Twitter and Instagram as @sadaoverall, while Facebook is @smalumfashi.
Our second guest is Khalid Abdullahi, a freelance writer and aspiring novelist with the first book in an epic fantasy trilogy on the way. He is a storyteller that covers a wide variety of content forms, from ghostwriting to copywriting, blogging and others.
While Khalid’s profile on PeoplePerHour will attest to his skill as an accomplished writer, you can also find him on Upwork and Fiverr. His favourite thing while navigating the highly competitive waters of freelance writing is his exposure to so many people, cultures and ways of life.
Want to put Khalid’s skills to the test? Then contact him on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
What is Ayamba Meet & Greet
Ayamba Meet & Greet began in February 2021 to bring together artists so we can interact with their works. This, we hope, will spark and inspire creative conversations that are necessary for the growth of arts and literature. We believe in the importance of building a literate society and the event helps us do so alongside our community.
Meeting on the first Saturday of every month, we invite one or two guests from a pool of upcoming and established creatives from around the region with a lot of insight to share.
We also have performances from attendees and play fun games like charades while our friends at VersusNG host Just Dance sessions on the Nintendo Switch.

If all that sounds like your cup of tea, or coffee, then come on down this Saturday to the Creativity Court at #21 Malam Isa Hassan Road, Unguwan Dosa, Kaduna. The event begins at 3:00pm on the dot, so if you’re scared of missing anything, don’t be late. See you soon!
