The constituents of Oyindamola s reality as a young black female immigrant, have caused an explosion of feminist awakening in Oyin's heart and her readers are the lucky spectators who get to watch her bedazzle us with To Bee a Honey: a scintillating work of art. Throughout the work, we see influences of other powerful women of color such as Warsan Shire, Rupi Kaur, and Maya Angelou, albeit not with the author's intention. We encounter a poet who does not only revel in the new-found confidence of her scribbling but also in the lush glow of her womanhood. What immediately strikes one upon perusing this work is its aesthetic beauty. This is not limited to the arresting visual images drawn up on the pages but also the arrangement of the lines; with carefully-planned alignments birthing creatively-shaped poems. A perfect example is a poem in this collection titled The pression, which relies more on the manner of presentation of the words to relay the message, than the actual self-contained meanings of the words themselves. The poems in To Bee a Honey are unlike what is found in many other poetry collections. They are drawings along the lines of the reader's consciousness. At the risk of being accused of over-proclamation, I dare say, To Bee a Honey is a welcome to the future of twenty-first century African poetry. (Description written by Kanyinsola Olorunnisola)
"These true stories are beautifully told, the pain and honesty and hope and joy in these accounts is strong like a song" – Stella Duffy This stirring and intimate collection brings together 25 first-hand accounts to paint a vivid portrait of what it means to be a queer Nigerian woman. These beautifully told stories of resistance and resilience reveal the realities of a community that will no longer be invisible. From the joy and excitement of first love, and from childhood games to addiction and suicide, She Called Me Woman shows us how Nigerian queer women, in all their multitudes, attempt to build a life together. She Called Me Woman challenges us to rethink what it means to be a Nigerian 'woman', negotiating relationships, money, sexuality and freedom, identifying outside the gender binary, and the difficulties of achieving hopes and dreams in a climate of fear.

Her feminist ideals put her in conflict with traditions and customs, leaving her torn between living as an independent and free 'woman of the times' and finding fulfillment in marriage, while in a constant power struggle with her husband, and the society.

The book, Beyond the Kitchen, aims at encouraging and exhorting women to overcome the various challenges they face in the society and to take their destiny in their hands. They are also urged to empower themselves with relevant education and to step beyond the kitchen to actualize their dreams and aspirations. The book does not advise women to abandon domestic duties or their responsibilities to their families. Rather, it urges women not to define their self worth solely by their role in the kitchen, but to look beyond it to fulfill their life’s mission and vision. To encourage women in this venture, examples of some women achievers from the world have been highlighted to serve as role models, while some propellers to purposeful action have been provided to equip women to believe in themselves and take positive action to fulfill their dreams and aspirations.
