“Poems of pain and pleasure, lyrics of love and lust; Nikade tells it as it is, sometimes unnervingly so. And because the experiences are recounted in mild and measured metre, the reader is eager to get to the end…and back to the beginning.”
— Emmanuel Frank-Opigo, Chairman, Bayelsa state chapter of the Association of Nigerian Authors

“A very bold attempt!”
— Barikumo Adou, General Manager, Creek FM 106.5 Yenagoa

“Ebidenyefa Nikade’s maiden collection, THESE WORDS ARE NOT MINE, is an exploration of two age-long themes- life on earth as a pilgrimage and love as painful but enlightening experience, which every pilgrim must go through to discover that life transcends the physical and its ensnaring affections. But more than this, it is a maiden’s diary- a rueful account of the loss of innocence and bitter-sweet transition into womanhood.”
— G.Ebinyo Ogbowei, Department of English and Literary Studies, Niger Delta University, Wilberforce Island, Amassoma, Bayelsa State

“This collection highlights the virtues of life targeted at our consciences towards building saner relationships for societal harmony and uplifts in all ramifications. The poems also dig deeper into areas of motherhood, childbirth and its associated pains, uniquely explored to make poetry accessible in exciting and enlightening ways.”
Eriata Oribhabor,  author of Crossroads & The Rubicon

“Deep with a powerful use of imagery, the reader is transported through a world of diverse emotions; happy, sad, gratitude, regret, pain and love. A work of art that speaks volumes.”
Lawson Hayford, General Manager, Bayelsa State Broadcasting Corporation, Glory FM 97. 1

“If a few drops of tears escape your eyes as you read the verses in this masterpiece, don’t be troubled. I shed a few too…”
Kukogho Iruesiri Samson, Poet, journalist, photographer, author of What Can Words Do and CEO WRR Ltd
