Tomi Adeyemi, bestselling YA author of the Legacy of Orisha books, was one of 9 young creators featured in the three-part Hulu special Your Attention Please, which focuses on bringing youthful black voices and experiences to the forefront.
Brought to social media in two parts, the short video shows Adeyemi creating a magic of her own as a maji of words, fighting an epic battle to craft the perfect story and bring her character to new heights. As serious as that may sound, she clearly had tons of fun making this and adds in plenty of funny moments, including a few with her adorable dog!
The important question is though– Did Idris Elba ever call?!
Your Attention Please is available in full on Hulu now. Tomi Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone and its sequel Children of Virtue and Vengeance are available wherever books are sold.
