Prosefully yours


The Nigeria art (literary, musical, ...) space is on fire with content.
Here are three novels that I think you will have so much fun reading. Fun is important, no?

Tenants of The House
An intelligent and fast-paced adventure about politricks in the national legislature.
Buy online or in a few bookstores.

I Do Not Come To You By Chance
I previously discussed it here.
It's on amazon, goodreads, in stores, etc.

Under The Brown Rusted Roofs
Oh-so-funny Yoruba-Literature-In-English, a love song to Ibadan, full of wit and wisdom.
It's probably not online yet, but I get it at the University of Lagos bookshop.

My book is not online yet (so sorry) but I hear it's in a bookstore on Lagos Island, with more coverage to come. Thanks to all those who've showed lovve for Comrade in various ways.

Flower Seller


I'm reading Capital, by Karl Marx.
Diego Rivera's paintings seem to fit the theme of exploitation of labour that so consumed Marx.

In the middle of this, I got to attend (and be on a panel at) the Nigerian Economic Summit. Let's just say it's about time truth gave corruption a knockout punch.
