Ekiuwa Aire

Ekiuwa Aire was born and raised in Benin City, Edo, Nigeria. She is passionate about African history and incorporates the richness of many cultures into her books. Now a mother living in Canada, Ekiuwa hopes that her books will help kids develop an appreciation for African history, and to value the wisdom and pride that will come from this knowledge.

Her debut children’s book titled Idia of the Benin Kingdom, imagines what the childhood of Queen Idia may have been like, and shares the story of this well-loved and successful African queen in a way that is relatable to young readers.
