Every parent's heart swells with pride at the idea of their children making a comfortable living. Will Smith is no exception. The only thing that sets him apart is the power and wealth he has to make that happen. The Oscar-winning actor has always been his children's number-one fan and the backbone of their pursuits. He has rooted for them at every step of the way- whether they are dropping tracks or dazzling on stage. And now, as Willow Smith sets sail on her literary journey, papa Smith is back in the saddle, ready to offer his encouragement.

Willow Smith's upcoming book, Black Shield Maiden, is an epic medieval fantasy series, which will hit the shelves on May 7, 2024. As Willow prepares to embark on a book tour, Will Smith has taken to Instagram to announce the tour dates and venues, scheduled from May 7 to May 18. The upcoming book will delve into the rich histories and mythologies of medieval African peoples and Viking-era women. It will also shed light on narratives that are often sidelined by dominant Western viewpoints.

Discussing her book in NME's In Conversation series in 2022, Willow shared her passion for history and fascination with human interaction, describing herself as a history-loving nerd. She expressed particular interest in prehistoric egalitarian societies and their methods of communication and organization, which serve as the foundation for her book. As Willow Smith ventures into the literary world, her father is returning to familiar ground.

In February, Will Smith forced everyone to speculate with an Instagram post, posing alongside Jaden Smith, Tainy, Lex Borrero, and NEON16. It was Smith's cryptic caption that hinted at a forthcoming project with the words, "excited for what we’re about to do". This picture came hot on the heels of reports from last year about Smith's return to music, with his debut on the Class of '88 podcast signaling his first step toward a comeback.

The Class of '88 podcast served as a platform for the Bad Boys actor to merge his cherished memories and deep-rooted passion for rap music. Even Joyner Lucas dropped hints of a potential return of Will Smith as a rapper. Last year, he shared footage of himself and Smith in the studio together. While Will Smith's next move remains uncertain, the hope for Willow is that, unlike her mother, her debut as an author will be met with smooth success.
