LOLA It is the year 1999 and my school life is upturned by my Lecturer in a case of sexual harassment I may never win. Still, I am determined to work hard, do my best and pass. All of these seem to work until resident bad boy on Campus and the heir to million-dollar Carew empire, Tokunbo Carew develops an interest in me. He also has a proposition for how we can take down my pervy lecturer. The issue is, he is a cultist, a little bit too goofy for me and a playa (a hot and handsome one at that!). The latter shouldn't matter but it does. And it soon becomes the least of our problems. Because Tokunbo's cult affiliation and the unhealthy obsession the Wolves have with me will come back and bite me in the ass. Also, what will be the greatest price to pay for my 'stubborn behaviour?' TOKUNBO I joined the cult to flex. It's 1999, I am 20 and so far, I have no issues with the (dangerous) lifestyle I have chosen. That is until the naturally pretty and feisty Lola Sodipo catches my eye. At first, all I want is some fun. However, things quickly get out of control with us. Also, I can't seem to stay out of trouble with The Wolves. And when everyone needs protection, I have to make costly sacrifices. Now the question is, Is it all worth it?

Your choice of a life partner will define the rest of your life and this is not something to take lightly. I won’t bore you with so much in the introduction. I will simply invite you into the book to examine your considerations and weigh your thoughts. In the end, you will find yourself putting your suitors on the right scale or putting yourself on the scale to see how balanced your considerations are. When I see marriages fail, I feel terribly bad because the trend can be arrested if single people can be told the truth. The truth is not far, many of these marriages did not fail at the marriage phase, marriage was just the imploding ground for a relationship wrongly founded. It is my hope therefore that you will find this book simple and easy to read. I pray also that as you follow the wisdom shared in this book, your testimony will be that, ‘I read it, applied it and my life has turned out so good!’ Enjoy a great read.

The book Morayo, gives a peek into the life of a woman entwined in a web of pain, misery and domestic violence.
In this book, I take the time to travel through the concepts of love and submission as taught in scriptures and argue that gaining the right perspective on the concept of ‘Husbands love your wives as Christ loves the Church’ and ‘Wives, submit to your own husbands as unto the Lord’ will revolutionize the marriage of any couple. It is a journey you cannot begin if you do not have an open heart that pursues greater understanding of the concept of love and submission and in particular God’s intention concerning marriage. I will therefore request that you proceed to read each chapter with a desire to interact with godly counsel and find the right understanding.
Anyone and everyone who has led exceptionally well discovered a sense of meaning and significance in life. They discovered that leadership is not a role to be played, but rather, it is a life to be lived. It is a 365-day way of life. Leading is not what you do once in a while. I am a firm believer that what you do every day will determine your yearly outcome. Whatever you do consistently, for a long period of time, becomes your habit. For leaders, leading every day is important, and when I say “for leaders”, I do not mean a particular set of people or a selected few as it were, I mean anyone including you.
Think about this for a minutes, "No billionaires ever made it through salary." There are things school will never teach you: How to sell. How to think. How to negotiate. How to love. How to manage time. How to invest money. How to discover my purpose and passion. How to be influential. How to embrace failures. How to start a business. How to be an effective communicator. How to read a financial statement. In this book you will learn how to chase your dreams rather than being used as a bite for others.
In a constantly confused and confusing world, I have grown tired of the nonsense surrounding love relationships and marriages, and I strongly despise the counterproductive narratives that are so common these days, which contribute a whole lot to the increasing rate of failed love relationships and marriages. The ever increasing consequences borne out of failed love relationships despite the very many relationship materials available, along with the clamor of many who have reached out to me for counsel and advice regarding these relatable issues, has driven me to address these issues in a direct, blunt and concise manner in THE DARK HORSE OF LOVE RELATIONSHIPS; the kind of advice one gets from a parent, brother, sister, or friend who shows you tough love by not sugarcoating anything but telling you the truth that many will either not tell you or will adulterate it in order not to hurt your feelings. I sought to “hurt your feelings” with loving truth so that you turn out well as opposed to not “hurting your feelings” and allow you fall into a ditch. I take it for granted that we all understand the importance of having people with this mindset around us. This book goes straight to the point, and in it you will find timeless truths and concepts that if you understand, and faithfully make them your reality, you will be shocked, pleasantly shocked, as to how in such basic, underrated concepts lie the secret to truly blissful love relationships.
