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

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.

Publisher: Oracle Books

ISBN: 978-979811146

Available at: Amazon.com

Short Description: Anierobi’s robust imagination takes him to the innermost recesses of our world to tell stories that derive from our workday experiences. His language is pacy and his characters range from the swashbuckling archetypes to the ingenious stereotypes, whose manners are a predator on your curiosity, sometimes stretching credulity to an unbelievable limit with twists and turns.

The characters . . . represent different shades of society: the heartbroken couple in search of the fruit of the womb, the daredevil armed robbers on the trail of a daredevil driver, the maverick father, the youthful lover questing for a happy ending, the unemployed grad[uate] whose tottering feet are an inspiration for the cartoon man, the disgruntled workers whose take-home can’t take home anymore, the hopeless youth courting Mammon to cut short the long path to his rainy days…

Path of Madness is a reflection of our contemporary logjams: there is a suffusion of blues in Anierobi’s tales. His concerns [cover] the harrowing experiences an average Nigerian undergoes in a quest for fulfillment…”
