This Weekend On OkadaBooks, Take A Trip To The ‘90s With ‘That ‘99 Love’

That ‘99 Love by Tomilola Coco Adeyemo

“It is the year 1999 and my school life is upturned by my Lecturer in a case of sexual harassment I may never win. Still, I am determined to work hard, do my best, and pass.”

These are the words of Lola, the female protagonist of this adventurous romance set mostly within the walls of the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU). 

Although fiction, Lola’s words are haunting and commonplace in the real world.

Through this captivating read, multiple times Bestselling Author, Tomilola lends her voice to an arduous year in the history of her alma mater, shines the spotlight on hard-biting topics (sexual harassment, cultism, etc.) society would rather talk about in hushed tones, and puts a more romantic spin to a decade sometimes argued to be one of the most eventful in Nigeria’s history.  It’s a thriller; a romantic-thriller; it’s a must-read!
