From the exaggerated machismo of Lagosian men to the absurdity of social media influencers, nothing escapes Kuku's hilarious scrutiny. With these stories set within Lagos, the author employs a lot of complex sentences and overly sexual content to prove his point.

Worthy of note is that the lady in the story is another exception to women possessing these madness-propelling characters. Again like all the books I read by Nigerian female authors, the book has a nice warm Nollywood feel. Anyone who could keep a white shirt clean at the end of the day in Lagos deserved a standing ovation. The idea that women are the propellers of the madness of nearly all the men in Lagos doesn’t plausibly apply to Stella or Chidubem in ‘Match Made in Heaven’. This book depicts the hazards of attempting to find enduring love and friendship in Africa's wildest metropolis with humour, wisdom, and empathy that will prove universal and informative.I knew I was going to make it in life so I was okay with the many phases and curveballs life threw at. Please note, we cannot guarantee these will be safe from any damage that may occur on their journey to you.

The polygamous inclinations of African men are deeply explored in this book, as is their propensity to find logic in double-standards. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Delving into the stories, women are represented as cunning and deceptive creatures and the madness of men is a response to these attributes. The collection starts strong with a witty story that adds a touch of sad shame, but that story gets the reader invested and you are already priming yourself for more. Her keen eye for the idiosyncrasies of Lagosian culture, combined with his clever wordplay, ensures that every page delivers a punchline.

Noting that the cause of infertility in the marriage is a result of the woman’s irresponsible lifestyle in her youth, the author then reveals that the man has tried his best not to cheat on her when he already brought in an official third party into the marriage. Nearly All the Men in Lagos are Mad is a short story collection written by Nigerian author and actress Damilare Kuku. Before picking up this book, I'd already known that Lagos men are really not okay in the head 😂 These stories (fictional, yes yes, I know) just confirm that. Nearly All the Men in Lagos Are Mad is a collection of twelve short stories featuring characters with unique voices and stories that represent the diverse class, gender and ethnic melting pot that is Lagos.
