Babatunde Raimi's collection of one hundred love poems “Love Leads” is a fascinating by-product of a persistent belief in the power of love to unite humanity. The poems, which celebrate love in varying degrees, are offerings of a new kind, a great departure from the norm.

It looks at love from different perspectives such that the brokenhearted, the rape victim, the aspiring lover, the widow, single parents, intending couples, and even the married have the benefit of healing from their hurt and learning new love languages. The project undertaken by the poet is an effort of redemption for what might have been lost.
