OJ! Cravings of Passion: Reminiscences of Once Upon A Mighty Kingdom
Tall, slim and lissome, OJ was a rare beauty. Her aquiline nose and beady eyes were striking attributes of a beauty queen, the fantasy of men. Men were attracted to her like bees to a flower, her beauty becomes her curse!Her quest for emancipation and hunt for her roots takes her down the street slopes of Ikpoba Hill to the Lower Niger River of Onitsha and Ebu in Oshimili. The search for a kingdom forged with the scars of warfare and a plethora of coups and counter coups. A kingdom that is a distant cousin to the Idoma, Nzam, Ifeku Islands and the Kukuruku Highlands. Once Upon A Mighty Kingdom it was.It is a tale of love and adventure, dating, courtship and Marriage. It is a pursuit for the connection of the Igala to many villages and cities in 24 States of the Federation. The evolution of the Igala mega State.It is an unmasking of the Igala values and visions, her concepts of God and time, marriage and kingship, the powers of the Atta as a demigod and the war campaigns of Onoja Oboni, the Generalissimo of Igala Empire and much more.It is an investigation into peace in the world, though tribe and tongue may differ. It is a long walk back in time to the tower of Babel that proves that whether Black or White, Caucasian or Asian, the same red blood runs through our viens. We are one and related; we are one stock: humanity. The division we see, is a corruption indeed of Once Upon A Mighty Kingdom.
