ADEBAYO by Alagbe Omotayo















"Hi" I greeted
..


"Hi" she replied sharply
..


We exchanged the pleasantries in a more casual way on the first day of the camping with my khaki still as new as a royal garment.
..


I kept reminiscing on how I have missed the golden chance of flirting with this damsel and wished to have a moment with her; never had the opportunity of flirting with a lady in my entire life. I was a book worm in school.
..


"Hey pretty princess" I cried out amidst multitude of corps members during the orientation.
..


She turned, there and then it dawned on me how beautiful she was in her khaki. Her facial appearance was well toned like the Lilly of the valley, her tit was around 30D and her body composition was well structured and perfected by He who created that awesome being. A devoted Christian would complement her nature and she was a true epitome of beauty.
..


She answered with a glowing smile and the whitest of teeth I had ever seen "how are you doing handsome?"
..


"Hey, I am Dimeji, uhn Oladimeji" stretching out my hand for a shake as I introduced myself with enthusiasm.
..


"Adedayo by name" she responded.
..


We spoke at length and later exchanged contacts.
..


Our love story kick-started that very night!
..


I always gushed about her to my friends; what she meant to me, how I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her and how she bearing my wards would be a living proof of what true love really means.
..


After a prolonged wait, she finally said ‘YES’ to my proposal. The kind of joy that filled my heart was more visible compared to when I won a scholarship to study overseas and I was the happiest man residing on the planet earth that evening.
..


As a religious person, i cajoled her to attend the marriage counseling with me as slated among the church doctrines. To fulfill all righteousness, we started going for marriage counseling with some couple of weeks to the marriage.
..


With much pressure starting to emanate during the penultimate week to the wedding, She pleaded with me not to attend any marriage counseling again but we should take note of the preparation for the wedding.
..
I disagreed and she reluctantly accepted to follow me. We went for the prayer session with our most trusted man of God. During which he started praying in tongues I couldn’t comprehend.
..


He laid his hands on us simultaneously, and began,
..


"uhnnnnn, hmmmmm, oh God"
..


He removed his hand from my forehead and placed it on my bride-to-be and started another round of his unending prayers, and then he switched to another language which cannot be analyzed linguistically within the space of time.
..


Deliverance in the air.
..


He prayed and banished all spirits that destroys every marriage and as he continued with his prayer, God opened his eyes to some revelations while we kept our eyes closed.
.
To my amazement my bride-to-be became the cynosure of all eyes as she opened her eyes and started a combat with the man of God. His associates came in and prevented her from hurting him.
..


Then, he revealed to me what God had shown him.
..


"Mr Dimeji, the woman you brought for prayer and counseling is a goddess of beauty and she has seven thousand legions at her command"

The Mark of the Lost: A Review of Chetachi Igbokwe’s Stage Play -Homecoming

In a time when theatres face a dearth of good pieces and theatrical performances gradually fade into plain text, the need for a homecoming of the art form, its representation of the dramatic, becomes important. Homecoming is an unpublished play that brings to the fore, the old craft of tragic dramatic art. Written by Chetachi Igbokwe and directed by Ugochukwu Victor Ugwu. The play premiered at the New Arts Theatre, University of Nigeria, Nsukka under the auspices of the Maestro Theatre. The play, which more beautifully, is a debut, brings you closer to African art, draws you in to fear, pity, myth, and of course plunges you afresh into a communion of tragedy; that man is born broken, for he lives by mending his brokenness, and only his chi becomes his death or salvation. The play is an Act on three characters: Nwakibe, Adannaya, his wife, and Nebeolisa, a lost son who appears to us as just Mr. Johnson; a writer from Moldova who becomes a neighbor to Nwakibe, whom he rents a room o

MEMORY'S INESCAPABILITY: A review of IFÉSINÀCHI NWÁDIKÈ'S How Morning Remembers The Night by Ikechukwu Iwuagwu

Author: Ifésinàchi Nwádikè' Publisher: Winepress Publishing & Griots Lounge Publishing Year: 2020 Pagination: 66 Reviewer: Ikechukwu Iwuagwu The inextricability of literature and reality is a standard which gives literary pieces varying degrees of quality. Grief, sorrow, regret, joy and happiness amongst others are fabrics or components which lace our memories. Ifesinachi Nwadike's 33 poem collection titled How Morning Remembers the Night bares relentlessly the colour and mien of memories as regard to the poet, and by extension his immediate society. Ushering us in with an introit which in my view, is a painting with words which gives us a nutshell of this literary master piece, more or less a foreshadow, Nwadike shows his proclivity for activism and concern for ones nation:   Grief came knocking on my heart's door... Grief of a comrade, in a hurry, No goodbyes...    Of activists, nationalists, patriots whose bloods, their nation's root sprout in

N30,000 Worth of Books for Young Writers in Nigeria

Books, literary meetings and magazines are essential to the creative development of a writer. Over the years, we have observed that lack of finance affects the young and emerging Nigerian writer's access to these literary essentials. At  Black Boy Review , we are aware of the consummate fire of artistic connection which books, magazines and literary events offer to the writer, and we are committed to providing that experience for the young and emerging Nigerian writer, whose literary potentials have been inhibited by lack of finance. We are therefore excited to announce our new project:  The Writers’ Money.   This project is a fund in vouchers for young and emerging Nigerian writers, living in the country, who are between the age bracket of 18 and 25. The funding ranges  between  N20,000  to  N30,000  worth of books by African authors disbursed to successful applicants twice in a year, starting  November 2021.  Applicant must be a writer, who has published at least a poem or a shor
