Udo Jude Ilo has announced the date for the public presentation of his latest book, Kasie and the launch of the Natasha Ilo Foundation – a family initiative that immortalizes Natasha, the late daughter of Jude and Nkem. A statement from the author said the event will hold as follows:
Date: February 23, 2021.
Time: 5:00 p.m.
Venue: Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Foundation, Abuja.
“Kasie,” a three-part book of poems, the author said, ” Is a tribute to my little girl. I do not ever want the world to forget my daughter. In these words, here, I celebrate her short life. I celebrate my love for her and the joy she brought to my heart… I hope that by reading this book, it may comfort those going through pain and help others to understand the pain of loss, especially the loss of a child.”
The Natasha Ilo Foundation, according to him, “is borne out of a strong conviction that every child deserves to live a full healthy life.” The Foundation he said, seeks to support children’s development by:
– Accelerating access to health
– Accelerating access to education
– Prevention of sexual and domestic violence.
Members of the media are invited to be part of the event and help promote the purposes of the project to the larger community, the statement said.
