That Gh Girl Fave: The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives

My fave thing at this moment is a book I recently finished reading called  ‘The Secret Lives of the Four Wives’ (the name in Canada) or ‘The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives’ (in other areas) by Lola  Shoneyin.

This story is about a young girl Bolanle who decides to be the fourth wife of Baba Segi to the dismay of her mother. Her family isn’t sure why she picks a man like Baba Segi, but Bolanle has a secret reason for wanting to be his fourth wife. When she enters Baba Segi’s house we find out all his wives have secrets they don’t want to come to light.

I enjoyed this book. It was good, such a page turner. At some points it felt like a Nollywood movie (in a good way). Some points I would be reading and be like ‘herh! these people are wicked’ or ‘I knew it!! I knew it!’ The lengths that people will go to hide their secret. I was shocked at some of the things that were happening in Baba Segi’s house. And this man didn’t know anything was happening. How??

I couldn’t put this book down I had to finish it.

I suggest you take a chance and read the book. Let me know what you thought. I don’t think you will regret reading it.
