Nneka Osueke is making her Homeland debut with her new series, Things Fall Apart, a visual story comparing and contrasting two perspectives of the Biafran War. Based on actual life events of Osueke’s parents the artist depicts the tumultuous time which rocked Nigerian history in nine mid-size works. Things Fall Apart, which borrows its name from the notable book by Chinua Achebe, observes how an African war, essentially a result of the colonialism which took place hundreds of years prior to it, impacted the mental, physical, and spiritual health of the nation and its people.

Nneka Osueke's "Ekure's Prayer, Ekure's Return" featured in the new animated Netflix series, 'City of Ghosts'

 With another Netflix cameo under her belt, Nneka Osueke's "Ekure's Prayer, Ekure's Return" made it's appearance on the new Netflix series, "City of Ghosts".

"City of Ghosts is a new kids animated series from Elizabeth Ito and Netflix has just put in an order for it. The show is being described as “a hybrid documentary and animated series in which a group of kids discover stories around their city by communicating directly with the ghosts who inhabit it." Ito grew up in Los Angeles and City of Ghosts “explores her personal experience growing up as a yonsei (a 4th generation Japanese American) living in various multicultural neighborhoods across L.A. In the series, Ito takes an entertaining look at how generations of diverse inhabitants can affect the changing dynamics of neighborhoods and the communities that form in them.”- geekytyrant.com
