Simply how mad are the boys in Lagos? It’s a query Nigerian creator and actor Damilare Kuku explores in 12 quick tales in her first novel, Almost All The Males In Lagos Are Mad. With relationship themes spanning infidelities, sexting and ‘situationships’ sons and moms, serial bachelors (and married and engaged ones), to infertility and sexual assault, Kuku’s provocative debut is a superb, witty, punchy account of the messiness of relationships. From the younger girl who tries to seek out her ‘oyibo’ soulmate on the streets of Lagos, the pastor’s spouse who defends her husband from an allegation of adultery to the spouse who threatens to chop off her husband’s penis, Almost All The Males In Lagos Are Mad is informed primarily by means of the eyes of Nigerian girls who’re all grappling with the perils of looking for lasting love and companionship, and, for Kuku, at its core, is a “love letter to girls.” “Every story relies on girls’s experiences, girls I do know,” shares Kuku to Unbothered UK forward of the novel’s launch. “There’s a lot we don’t speak about as girls.”
