If you are reading this, I am happy to announce to you that my much-acclaimed debut Poetry collection, I KNOW WHY YOUR MOTHER CREIS is out now.

There’s something here for everyone.

Some poems in this collection are humorous and contemporary, dealing with everyday human experience; others deal with deeper stuff, setting out and transcending the nuances of memory, feminism, motherhood, body-narratives, longing, and identity.

Some poems rail about poverty, corruption, hypocrisy, injustice, and social issues, expressing the poet’s deep revolutionary concern.

I Know Why Your Mother Cries is an interesting new collection.

You can read more about this book here. You can order copies from bookstores in Nigeria.

For those in diaspora, you can buy from Amazon Kindle here
