Asabi's mother was convinced that Asabi would never find a husband. But, could you really blame her? Asabi wasn't beautiful according to the standards, she was a headstrong, defiant and sharp-tongued woman. To make matters worse, Asabi had her head cleanly shaven. Only widows shaved their head, not young women hoping to catch the eyes of eligible young men. This book is centred around the lives of the defiant Asabi, the raving mad Bejide, the industrious Asiyah and the ever passionate Omotola.
A Cluster of Petals is an eclectic mix of short stories that are as brilliant as they are varied. These stories have been written over a span of about a decade and a half and capture the literary growth of the author as well as the timelessness of words and tales. ‘Two right hands’ is the story of a child who has a conversation with his hands. Like the latter story, 'The Letter My Shoe Sent Me'; it provokes the reader to question what will be heard when the voiceless are able to speak. 'Madiba's Mole' also tows this line, with a fictional monologue of a mole on Nelson Mandela's face against a backdrop of xenophobic attacks. '7 days' is set in a boarding school in Lagos at a time when senior students were gods and masters to juniors. It is the witty and charming tale of a youngster navigating adolescence and a prophecy in which he is both the lead character and victim. 'The Mysterious Matter of Mallam Musa's Missing Murano' is the award-winning whodunit story of a man whose prize possession goes missing and everyone is a suspect. It is sardonic, funny and laced with a blend of Northern Nigerian Culture. 'How to be A Maga' is based on the true-life experience of the author and outlines the three basic things you need to get scammed. This book has a story for everyone and was shortlisted for the 2019 Quramo Writers Prize and the 2019 Linda Ikeji Prize for Literature

For many years, mankind has failed to achieve the fullness of purposeful living. This book focuses on awakening us to the power already invested in the creature called man. Our being is opened up to the power of confession, a weapon of our warfare which has been watered down in the generation that we live in. The Redeeming Power of Jesus has given us full knowledge and access to the keys of His power and inheritance. The writer gives us the reason for our need for confession-calling to existence that which be not as though they be and takes us through transforming declarations on our spouses, finances, children, health and extended family. Every page is power-packed, filled with words that speak to the core of our being, breaking down strongholds, unleashing our divine potentials and catapulting the reader to fulfilling and enjoying divine purpose. As you read the book and meditate upon the words therein, I pray that your life will show forth beauty and experience excellence.
