He recently completed a world tour for his book Hip Hop is Only for Children. which reached over 15 cities in about 12 countries on all continents, the tour spanned up to seven months from January 15 to August 18, 2017.

Onyeka’s new book is also  available in various cities around the world, including Hong-Kong, Delhi, Los Angeles, Paris, Florence, New York, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Lisbon, Singapore, Prague, Dubai, Barcelona and Crete, with more dates and cities to be added in the course of the tour.

On the choice of countries for the book tour, he said, “I get opportunities and I jump at them. I am not the one picking on countries to do my tour in. I am touring all continents, even going to Australia, to promote my new book. If I don’t promote my writing, no one would. I don’t also belong to any clique as most Nigerian writers do”.

The book tour, he said, was inspired by musicians elsewhere, apart from Nigeria, who, upon release of new materials, quickly go on tour and promote them. This, he said, inspired him to do the same for literature, as he hopes to inspire such in an evolutionary process in Nigerian literature.

Recently He hosted Austynobeatz, Bobbycombz and Geo kaycee amongst others in Lagos.
