Short Description: To Return from the Void and Vanishing Vapour are creative exercises in music and dance respectively, to project the author’s contributions to nation-building. In To Return from the Void, things fall apart after the collaborative victory of the Dentarean leaders. Absolute power soon corrupts absolutely. Dentarea becomes an arena of malfeasance manned by careless, carefree and rudderless leaders. Now, unity, truthfulness, love, commonsense and genuineness are all that are required to return from the void. Sunnie Ododo’s creative ingenuity in adapting the Ebira mythology on the energy of witchcraft, and the counterforce of masquerade in Vanishing Vapour is an attempt to showcase the African solution to national and global threats.
