Rabato Sabato aka Soni Dike is a Lagos big boy; a criminal turned grandee, with a beautiful wife, a sea-side mansion and a questionable fortune. Then one day he disappears and his car is found in a ditch, music blaring from the speakers. Soni’s older brother, Abel Dike, a teacher, arrives in Lagos to look for his missing brother. Abel is rapidly sucked into the unforgiving Lagos maelstrom where he has to navigate encounters with a motley cast of common criminals, deal with policemen all intent on getting a piece of the pie, and contend with his growing attraction to his brother’s wife. The Carnivorous City is a story about love, family and just desserts but it is above all a tale about Lagos and the people who make the city by the lagoon what it is.

Months ago, fresh out of chemo, I had to send a headshot. I was forced to take photos and hated the chemo-puff.

Today, I had to send my "most recent" picture and couldn't be bothered to go take another so...Mr Meyer said I look like a Nigerian Minister😜
Uhm, I don't think so.

God bless her
