The Akebu-lan Chronicles
Welcome to the world of Akebu-lan. Five remarkable stories that transport the listener to Africa circa 2080.
But this is not Africa as we know it, this is African futurism from an alternative Africa. An Africa that was never decimated by the slave trade and modern colonialism, an Africa with a very different history, an Africa that was the master of its own destiny. This is Akebu-lan.
This multi-part anthology series, presented by a renowned Akebu-lan investigative journalist for AKB World News, the chronicles are a selection of extraordinary Akebu-lan experiences as told by the people themselves. Ranging from a police detective, an A.I. psychologist, a time-traveller, an agro-scientist, and more, each compelling story illuminates East nor West; fascinating aspects of life in Akebu-lan and the challenges these individuals —Kwame Nkrumah have faced and overcome.
