The Good, the Bad & the Ugly

…experience the good, the bad and the ugly parts of the literary life!

No one ever said climbing the literary ladder was going to be smooth all the way. Not all the rungs one steps on lead to the way up, but that’s just what makes it fun, isn’t it?

This page has been created to project the various views that my readers, most of them also writers themselves, have about my works or myself as a writer. I will keep it as open as possible so that whatever your views are – good, bad or ugly, they will all be published here. Some of them may not directly be on my writing but just remarks writers are very capable of making, especially on literary forums! But with the realisation that what could be bad could be good in the long-run, or the good could turn out to be really ugly, I always encourage everyone to keep them coming…the good, the bad and the ugly! And to show just how much I encourage them, I have giving you your on voice! It will be periodically updated as more voices come in. It is a marketplace of voices!

‘I enjoyed reading these poems so very much. Each in their own way really touched my heart.’
A reader, African Writer

Excellent!! Heart-rending comparison and a pointed story well expressed…

‘All things being equal I like the prophetic nature of your poems. Their simplicity and ambition to be understood. Take away words that we have seen before and your dreams will come through.’ Cletus Nwadike, a Swedish-based Nigerian writer.

‘Those are really good poems…the imagery is excellent, I could almost see the child crying in the rain. You’ve arrived, keep it up!’ Chinelo Ibekwe

Like Achebe would say of Adichie,this
poet came to humanity complete,and
with an urgent message too!
Agoha Chikaoha

The voices I hear in these poems are
deep and uplifting! I can’t wait to get (to)
make the book my companion when it
is out eventually! I’m HIV + with a high
viral load but i’ve hope.
