He will oversee production, Public Relations, distributions and marketing strategies. Ray is the author of over 20 best-selling books on Amazon including the globally acclaimed Afro-epic fantasy series, Sorrows of Udi whose animated web series has been screened in several international film festivals in London, Italy, New York and even Bulgaria. He is an influential figure in the Nigerian book publishing space, founder and president of Bookhouse Nigeria, convener of the Lagos Bookhouse Party and the Bookhouse Prize.

He is the Chief Event Coordinator for the Lagos Comic Convention, Africa’s largest Geek and pop culture marketplace with over 6000 attendees yearly. He has worked on notable comics and animation projects like Vantage comics, Newborn graphic novel series and the international award-winning Area Daddy animation series.
Ray Anyasi is also a PR and digital marketing expert. He co-founded Yanii Consult and currently serves as their Chief Operations Officer, overseeing multi-million naira budget PR campaigns for multi-nationals and blue chip companies with a reputable success rate.
Elated to make this inclusion to the team, creator of the Dawn of the Patriot, Okimi Peters says that, “We believe that Mr. Anyasi will be an invaluable asset to the team. His wealth of experience in the African novel space is extensive”).
According to Ray Anyasi, he was convinced to take on this role for two reasons: One was because of the strong sense of purpose and commitment to go all the way he sees in the creator and the rest of the team which is rare in the Nigerian comics space. Secondly, he was captivated by the Van Gogh-ish, post-impressionist style of the illustrations. It was so unique and outstanding that he couldn’t resist.
We trust that Ray’s influence and experience will impact on the success of the Dawn of the Patriot franchise.Follow us on social media
