Talking Bookz- A revolutionary literary device


Talking Bookz seeks to disrupt the traditional book publishing market and redefine how Africans consume books.

The Talking bookz app is the answer to every student's prayer. I remember wishing I had the audio version of those unending lecture notes and hand-outs, and honestly things you hear and see are harder to forget than tings you read, so this is an informal suggestion to all schools and educational centers; switch from written to oral means of tutelage.

Offering book categories as humour, erotica, fiction, romance, cooking, biography, kids and more; launched at the 2015 Mobile West Africa event, the Talking Bookz app allows users to purchase and download audiobooks straight to their devices from a wide range of aforementioned categories.

Talking Bookz was established to get in front of the audiobooks trend. The platform is the first audio-book startup and retailer of downloadable audiobooks in Nigeria and Africa, and it was founded by Kolapo Ogungbile and Damilola Aransiola. Buying into a dying habit of reading physical books as exhibited by nearly every consumer, digital books are becoming the new phase of book production and consumption.
