A Bit of Present and A Lot of Future…

Talking about publishing in Nigeria, you could say Ouida Books is one of the newest kids on the block.  Our vision is to cater to the needs of readers who enjoy high quality fiction by authors like Nnedi Okorafor, Ayobami Adebayo, Odafe Atogun and Hadiza El-rufai. However, we’re also here for the readers who have a quirky taste in books.

Our children’s imprint Tanja was launched in October 2018 with the release of Ayo Oyeku‘s Mafoya and the Finish Line.

Under Cognix, our non-fiction imprint, we released The Villager by Feyi Olubodun.

Ouida Books is inspired by the pin-tailed Whydah, known for its love of freedom, its courage and undeniable elegance.
