REVIEW: ‘LET ME RUN MAD TODAY’ WILL NEVER BE A BORING READ FOR ANY LOVER OF POETRY, ART AND LITERATURE‘
This collection of creatively introspective poems is a bulls-eye-aim at social dysfunction and obnoxious individuals. In beautifully collected words, the poet bleeds her thoughts about the world in which she exists, expressing her search for identity and unabashedly voicing her ‘Africanness’.
Let me Run Mad Today is the ‘straight-in-your-face’, ‘who- cares? (scoff) kind of poetry. It is neither politically correct nor traditionally pleasing but it says it like it is in the most ethical way and with biting sarcasm. The poet seems pregnant with a churning anger at her society with all the ills and plagues bedeviling it and just wants to lash out vituperative criticisms on her society.
— Eugene Yakubu, book reviewer
