Where Are The Famous African Chefs?

Why does west African cooking not sit along side Chinese, Indian or Italian food in the publishing world? The foods from Italy seem to have a global appeal how has this come about through publishing. Why have there been so few African cook books published and in turn why are they not in the shops and libraries of our towns and cities?
