Award winning TV Host, actress, producer and entrepreneur- Stephanie Coker Aderinokun is proud to announce the launch of her children’s picture book, Ariella & The Talking Drum which is now available on Amazon for purchase and  available for pre-order on

In recent years, Stephanie has gone through various transitions in her personal life;  from wife to mother and most recently a titled chief as a custodian of her Nigerian heritage and culture. This transition has brought with it new passions as she ventures into a new horizon, adding author to her list of achievements.

Culture is a big reflection of our society that forms our identities, explains beliefs and contributes to the vibrant experiences of human life in a world full of differences. Ariella and the Talking Drum gives expression to Stephanie’s love for Nigerian heritage and the inherent need to ensure the younger generation is carried along. The beautifully illustrated book celebrates African culture in its setting and characterisation, woven through with African sounds. The book is centred around a little girl’s encounter with a princess, that brings about lessons in gratitude, contentment and kindness. Every act of kindness towards ourselves has a rewarding effect that makes our lives better. It also allows us to connect with other people and build meaningful relationships.

Speaking on the launch of her debut children’s book, Stephanie Coker Aderinokun stated:
“This book has been in the works for a while and I’m excited to finally share it with the world. Inspired by my daughter, ‘Ariella and the Talking Drum’ is not just a kids book but a tale that celebrates our culture, and Nigeria’s rich history. It is also a heartwarming
story , and with all African tales, there are lessons to be learnt”.

The book is one of the  many projects that the media entrepreneur has
in the pipeline. “Ariella and the Talking Drum” is now available to Preorder on
Amazon and with the festive season just  round the corner, it is the perfect gift for the little ones.
