Black Rose Bay is a collection of reflective poems erected upon the almost clichéd but all-time relevant philosophy of living life to the fullest. It serves as a subtle reminder of the ultimate end that someday comes hunting every human. By so doing, the poems herein aim to push readers to make the best use of the current ephemeral existence. Paradoxically, this collection could be described as a cup of ocean. In this case, the ocean symbolizes the turbulence of life and the eventuality of death. The cup on the other hand comes to bale, into its calm, a part of the ocean, thus reflecting the hope and possibility of finding peace even amidst seeming unease.
This Village Will Forever Sing Your Praise is a collection of themed poems from nine authors. It has ten themes, and each author contributes a poem for each theme. The themes are tailored to guide the poets in the desired direction while giving them the liberty to explore the topics however they see fit. The writers are all young Nigerians, though from different tribes and cultural settings. This shows in their poems, making the book a balanced portrayal of what it means to be young, to be Nigerian and to be a writer. There are lines and lines of thought and of emotions, of beauty and of pain, of love and of shame. Lines long locked away in vaults of time and reasoning, coming out brewed and sweet to the eyes and ears.
Birdsong is a collection of stories I had been yearning to tell from the first day I tasted poetry in the betrayal of the first boy I ever dared to love.

It is a playlist of the songs I sing to myself on days when my head is quiet enough to hear my heart say: my love is here for you. It is my song. I hope it makes you dance.
