It’s my pleasure to announce the official launch of my second collection of poems ‘Sweetness’. All thanks goes to God, who’s the first poet and punster ever liveth, never dieth.
Sweetness is an affectionate name for someone I loved. She was everything sweet, so much I always nod my head (as if saying hello), along with an elongated blink of her eyes, while pouting out her lips slightly for kisses we ne’er had.
‘Sweetness’, a collection of 43 poems was birthed from a series of poems I scribbled while the ripple effect of a sweetness overdose lasted.
Like you already know, I wouldn’t serve sour wine. This is a rich collection of 43 poems narrating the rise and fall of love like tidal waves on a long journey to sweetness.
It’s a mixture of WOW! AWN! and AW! A great read, I guarantee you.
Special thanks to my family who has supported me immensely. Much love!
My gratitude goes to my mentor Phunso Oris for professionally editing and proofreading this book even when I made him do so under duress.
Special thanks to Jide Badmus, you’re a brother indeed. Thanks for the final editing and reviews. You did a great work even in a short notice.
“Bold, beautiful and blissful poems! Themes well crafted, sensuously satisfying, without overburdening the thematic conceit.” – Funso Oris
“Reading SWEETNESS is like snacking on a plate of heart-shaped candies. The language employed in these short delectable verses is simple; and the message is like a kiss-stamp on a pink postcard. This collection of poems promises to take you on a tour of lyrical beaches to see beautiful sunsets. The imagery is vivid, easily relatable! This book will make you yearn for love and the sweetness of romance.” – Jide Badmus (Author, There is a Storm in my Head)
Sweetness is edited by Funso Oris and Jide Badmus and published by Prose & Poetry Hood.

30 will tell the story of chaotic frailty, the never-ending war between multi-coloured-coated morals and prancing of the mind and how I take solace in words- that crevice of aloneness I crawl back to after the ovation fades and reality is stripped naked.
