Short stories

Red Pepper and English Tea is an avant-garde voice in the business of love, dreams as a life-long myth and the bitter-sweet journey to self-discovery six thousand miles away from home. Inspired by the commonwealth documentary "This is Lagos", Julie, the heroine, explores the themes of chasing dreams, conquering fears, facing reality and earning the mature sense of savoir-faire. Her experience debunks the myth associated with the African social commentary on having a better life abroad than at home. Julie's journey to England is mileage on a seed sown with peculiar experiences scarring Africans today.
Red Pepper and English Tea makes an interesting read because its voice is honest, its message is fresh and its words engage you in the never-give-up quest for the gift of white skin and, the tasty and sour faces of England.
It is a wild portrayal of neo-colonialism, the young, the restless, the lady and her dreams. An intricately sizzling journey of life, youth and everything in between.
A Refreshing Read!
