About this book


An unemployed man sees a vision of the love he wants to have as he strikes up a conversation with a young lady on a packed Molue during a traffic jam. A child gets drawn into the daily goings-on of her beautiful next-door neighbours. A woman steps back into her hidden past when she meets her father for the first time and spots a torn photo. A young man realises that he can’t fine tune his romantic inclinations to suit his heritage. Naija Love Stories, set against the backdrop of a rich and vibrant Nigerian culture, will take you on a journey through the lives and loves of various characters, all grappling with different concepts of what it means to love, and to be loved. Using her lyrical style punctuated with sharp and witty undertones, Ola Awonubi deftly captures the power, poignancy, mystery, hilarity, longevity, complexity and simplicity of love – some of the many faces of love that any reader, anywhere in the world, will instantly recognise.
