“A touching portrait of one poet’s life and his society, Which he is committed to changing through the Powerful tool of imagination”
— Pambazuka and Fahamu Africa
Dreams Wake Me is a remarkable book. It reflects both distinct artistry and a fierce social vision. The author is both staunchly artistic and socially committed. The collection comprises both conventional poetry and contemporary ‘spoken word.’ In verse after verse, Valentine Ogunaka plumbs the personal and the public. He plunges daggers into the hypocrisies and fraud of his nation and times. It is an accomplished, incisive and daring work.
— Reginald C. Ofodile
One of the best. His drive, his approach to life; a bit simplistic but punchy! He has written what all of us will find useful. His way of revealing situations, amazes. He continues to shine bright. What makes it very unique is the simple way he has chosen to say the things he has said.’
