“As a mother, I have passion and wish to make the world my children grow up in a little more positive. I want to be instrumental and a resource in allowing the next generation to be great and believe in themselves like I believe in them.” Denise Mobolaji Ajayi-Williams, Author of AKITI THE HUNTER.
The superhero Akiti, is unlike any other super hero and differentiating abilities such mind reading, the ability to speak any language, communicate with animals, as well as him being immortal. The first installment of the five-part book series will captivate readers as they marvel in Akiti’s bravery, power, and self-confidence. There is now effort being made, to convert the tale of AKITI THE HUNTER into animated series, and possible an animation movie in the near future.
“To my knowledge, there has never been an action hero from an African descent in any major motion animated picture, children’s book, or comic book. All of our children deserve to be represented in a positive light and I’m excited to fill that void.” Continues Denise Mobolaji Ajayi-Williams. “There is much going on in the world where our current situations are begging us to release messages that are diverse. Children need to know no whatever they look like, they too, can be heroes; they can be legends, celebrated and immortalized just like AKITI THE HUNTER.”
