Short Description: Kasali Adebayor, a prominent farmer in the city of Akure, a husband of five wives, fancies himself as an activist for good
governance while wielding the big stick of patriarchy over his family
members. In the fast changing African political landscape Kasali’s
family comes under the spotlight; an exposure which – initially
appealing and addictive – threatens everything he holds dear and
secret. Kasali’s daughter who has been a secret rebel in her father’s
Akure enclave visits her aunt in Monrovia, gets drunk on her freedom,
and is soon caught in the web of violence that engulfs Liberia’s Glay
presidency. Kasali Adebayor, weak against the subtle feminism-inspired
request of his of beloved wife Mojisola, ends in a dead end that
brings out the worst in him, and begins the end of Kasali’s Africa

Bingo and Friends by Iwedi Ojinmah

Title: Bingo and Friends

Author: Iwedi Ojinmah

Genre: Fiction

Format: Paperback & eBook

File Size (eBook): 50 KB

Book Dimension (Paperback): 5.5 x 8.5

Number of Pages: 100

Publication Year: November 26, 2018

Publisher: Iwedi Ojinmah

ISBN: 1729148441

Available at: Online on Amazon Stores and Amazon Kindle Store

Short Description: Nobody questions the benefits of reading any more. People who read, or are read too, live longer happier lives and grow up to be more attentive and productive, regardless of what they do. From as far back as when our ancestors drew crude drawings in their caves, or passed on stories by the side of their campfires, the need to converse has always been embedded in us. This book is an effort to continue this narrative, be it between parent and child, strangers in a book club or teacher and student in school.

Come with us as we invite you into a sleepy Igbo village, where animals can speak to each other, and their daily interaction with humans is told in a fast and witty way. The highlight is the big soccer derby between rival villages, its unfolding and subsequent outcome. It is indeed an African fantasy, experienced by animal and child, but through the eyes of an adult.

Title: This Side of the Dead

Author: Isaac Attah Ogezi

Genre: Drama

Format: Paperback

Book Dimension: 5.0 x 7.5

Number of Pages: 181

Publication Year: 2018

Publisher: Old Press (PEA & Associates)

ISBN: 978-9789545346

Available at: Booksellers Ltd, Abuja, Citi Plaza, Area 11, Garki and No. 34, Ankpa Road, Makurdi, 08035933577

Short Description: Mr. Ogezi’s new play examines the fears, struggles and triumphs of the downtrodden in a class-restive society. With deft utilization of stage resources and verisimilitude, humanity is depicted with telling imaginative empathy in a ghoulish dramatization that embeds reality in fiction.

This Side of the Dead mirrors the class tensions inherent in a third-world country and their attendant consequences. It is about the lives of two brothers caught in the vortex of a soulless world. Michael, an expelled final-year law student on asylum at his elder brother’s construction site home, unwittingly manages to attract love from Susan, an American-born daughter of a Nigerian Cabinet Minister. Unfortunately, his ambivalence to this love does not suffice in stopping the huge price which the poor must pay for crashing the party of the rich and the powerful.
