  • They burned down the market on the day Vivek Oji died. One afternoon, a mother opens her front door to find the length of her son’s body stretched out on the veranda, swaddled in akwete material, his head on her welcome mat. The Death of Vivek Oji transports us to the day of Vivek’s birth, the day his grandmother Ahunna died. It is the story of an over protective mother and a distant father, and the heart-wrenching tale of one family’s struggle to understand their child, just as Vivek learns to recognize himself. Teeming with unforgettable characters whose lives have been shaped by Vivek’s gentle and enigmatic spirit, it shares with us a Nigerian childhood that challenges expectations. This novel, and its celebration of the innocence and optimism of youth will touch all those who embrace it.

  • The Unmarked Grave and Other Stories is a collection of mostly factual stories and a few fictitious ones handed down to me by my late grandmother. Though fictional, there’s a clear lesson that’s still applicable in our modern day society. All other factual stories eg The Wingless Butterfly, Killed by Love and Holier Than Thou happened in the author’s life and environment. The author’s keen eye and ear are always on the ground, and therefore, by documenting all those unfortunate events requires the society to acknowledge them and act on them to get an amicable solution.
    Everyone is sure to relate to one or two stories either directly or indirectly. The choice of diction is relatively simple and downright accurate and descriptive. Once you embark on reading the text, you will not be able to put the book down.

  • The Cages We Built is a book that openly talks about one’s emotional vulnerability and the freedom and right we all have to give and receive love, to be love. But, since this book is written from my personal experiences, it also talks about the things that get us to that point of love. Those ugly scars that make us and the journey of a depressed mind that still leads one to the light. These are the mental cages of life, specifically depression.

    Not only is its rate increasing but people are bottling up their emotions with drugs and social media more and more and people need to see that it’s okay to openly talk about those ‘ugly parts’ of us. They still make us the beautiful people we are now who deserve love and whose legacy , at least in part, should be about the freedom brought about from the cages of the mind broken free that once suffocated our human experience.

    It’s divided into three chapters; freedom, rebellion and the war. Freedom is a section of poems that joyfully celebrate love and intimacy and highlight the madness drunk in the cup of love.

    In rebellion, the poems rebel against mistreatment in love and appreciation of oneself as enough as a source of love rebelling against the societal idea of love.

    Lastly, the war is composed of difficult poems written during the height of the said depression. They show the clear different mental states of a depressed person when in love and, of a self-loving person when in love. They give more life to the right to experience love in all its flames by showing a contrast of the life lived before and telling the story of that life in rhyme.
