THE CRAZY NIGERIAN is a true life story of a boy on a path of self-discovery. As he shuffles between the United Kingdom and Nigeria, he narrates his amusing childhood experiences and gives his unique perspective on various issues that had a significant impact on his psyche. As he gets older, he comes to grips with the harsh realities of life and finds his own quirky way of dealing with them. Between hearing ghosts and the traumatic experience of going bald, he learns to adapt to his surroundings and make some hard choices, including whether or not he should relocate to Nigeria for good.
It is a fact that a whole lot of people around are unemployed, a large percentage of them being graduates who have been seeking for a placement for years. The irony is that while these job seekers are complaining about lack of jobs, companies are also complaining about not being able to identify many good candidates. If you are currently among the large number of job seekers, I would like you to revive your hope of getting a job quickly and easily as you align your thinking and practice the steps outlined in this book. As you launch out again to get the good job available for you, I trust that this time, you will be successful! Jimi Tewe

This book represents a collection of articles written as I struggled to define my world view. It was May 2005, I was 23 years old, just resigned a job, in employment limbo for about 5 months and was at a loss of who I was, what my career should be and what my place in the world could be. I began ruminating on thoughts of the things I could do to influence the world. Inspired by an autobiography of Chief Obafemi Awolowo, I turned to the one thing I always knew I was good at: writing. I poured out my growing frustration and hope for redemption into an article I titled “If God had a field I could burn”. Since I knew I had no money to publish any literary work (my first book “War by Other Means” was still in the cooler unpublished) I decided to send the first article to all the friends I had via email and invite them to comment. “If God had a field I could burn” was a cry for help. I felt God had ignored me for too long and I needed him to take notice. This was the first article to go out and the responses came in fast and furious: it connected with the readers! There were so many cries for an encore that I knew I now had an audience. The challenge I faced was on what to write on next but then the inspiration kept coming.

That was how it all started between Me and Temi, during my search on facebook one day, after clicking on people you may know Icon, her profile came up and request was sent then she also accepted me like two dayslater………….. We had been friend for over a year but had never for once chatted her up even though she’s always online sometimes neither have I ever commented on any of her beautiful pictures she uploaded on facebook…..This was our first conversation and the reception I got was just too harsh for me.
