TW Magazine & Plug Media release a special celebrity read audio book “Imagine This” for the visually impaired in Nigeria

Adesuwa Onyenokwe has spent nearly thirty years in television, and three years in print media with her wholesome lifestyle magazine – TW.

TW Magazine recently celebrated its 3rd Anniversary with a project that is close to Adesuwa’s heart – support for people with disabilities.

For her third anniversary, TW Magazine has partnered with Plug Media Limited to produce an audio book for the visually impaired in Nigeria. The project, a Plug Media initiative, will involve Adesuwa and friends recording a book in the studio and making them available on cassette tapes and audio cds for the visually impaired in institutions for the blind and the visually impaired in Lagos.

Schools for the Blind across Nigeria enjoy little support and one of their greatest needs is books whether they are Braille or audio books. To this end, we have chosen Sade Adeniran‘s award winning debut novel- ‘Imagine This’ for the TW audio recording.

‘Imagine This’- the novel is 266pages long and so far a total of 9 people are scheduled to read the book. Each person will read an average of 26 pages and will spend 2 hours each recording their section in the studio.

The readers are:

  • Dakore Egbuson
  • M.I (Mr. Incredible)
  • Bez
  • Ituen Basi
  • Taofick Okoya
  • Joke Silva
  • Mandi Brown Ojugbana
  • Ebun Feludu (Principal Partner- Plug Media Ltd.)
  • Adesuwa Onyenokwe (Publisher- TW Magazine)

TW Magazine launched the project on her anniversary on September 30th 2010 as a first in a series of audio book readings for the blind and the visually impaired in Nigeria.

    This is a nice push for audio books, it doesn’t have to be only for the visually impaired though.
