Welcome to the SyncityNG Literary Lord and Ladies show, a platform where we showcase the finest literary creatives in our midst. Today’s guest is an award winning writer, satirist, and occasional actor. His debut novel, Easy Motion Tourist, features female Nigerian protagonist, Amaka, who works to protect the sex workers of Lagos. The second book in the Amaka Thriller series published this month is When Trouble Sleeps. In this second Naijo Noir thriller, Amaka gets embroiled in politics on a do or die level.
