SLONDONMORRAH (Wilfred Oyem)
‘SLONDONMORRAH’ by Wilfred Oyem is a fictionalised narrative of the decline in morals attributable in part, to the often askance, divergent views of freedom in contemporary western society. It is a gripping narration told in the same intensity and depth as the encompassing decadence. In London meets Sodom and Gomorrah, Oyem projects a fictionalised view of a present-day society, offering insightful perspectives into the conniving effects of ill-perceived freedoms, misguided agitation for personal and sectorial rights, and governmental foibles orchestrated by the press.
