Yoruba Love Stories by Olabode Ogunlana
Published by Books of Africa 2014
Olabode Ogunlana, having achieved much in the world of business, has set out on a new challenge - to write a series of love stories set in the tradition of the Yoruba folklore handed down to him through many generations.
Some of these stories are timeless. Others are set in modern times, in the last century. Love usually wins but Ogunlana’s vividly drawn characters suffer from separation, mistaken identity, ethnic conflict, self-doubt and jealousy.
A captivating picture of life, love, fun and romance in an authentic Nigerian atmosphere.
