An example is when Kenny’s mother in ‘Swiped Right’ speaks ill of Bella for being on Tinder but thinks that it is men being men when Kenny brings it up that his cousin must have been on Tinder to have met her there. The last page in the book felt like the author was patronizing ‘Nearly All the Men in Lagos Are Mad’. Life is too short to stifle laughter, and Kuku's masterpiece is guaranteed to tickle your funny bone like no other.

It is once again the man who gets to feel guilty after finding out she is no longer a virgin like he hasn’t been sleeping with her best friend the entire time. it deftly analyses the various archetypes women are likely to encounter in the dating scene in the city – from serial cheaters, to mummy’s boys, from the ‘fake it till you make it’ adherents to the ones who can’t commit. The stories were easy to read but the sex scenes seemed forced to me and I found them unnecessary at some point. What may be underreported in other reviews of this book, is the tendency of the fairer species to make terrible decisions where matters of the heart are concerned. Short stories are always a good start to get off a reading slump or ease you out of the state that heavy books leave you in.

With these stories set within Lagos, the author employs a lot of complex sentences and overly sexual content to prove his point. Femi is not the only male character who is dubious, there is the male protagonist in ‘Just the Tip’ who cheats on his partner with her best friend just because she wouldn’t have sex with him outside the confines of marriage. My favourites were definitely: 'The gigolo from Isale-Eko', 'Cuck Up', 'Catfish' (because it was so crazy) 'Beard Gang' and 'International Relations'. So, if anyone can collate stories about the madness of the men, there deserves to be one revealing the madness of the women.

We see harrowing tales of betrayals, double-lives and hard truths, as experienced and seemln through the eyes of women who are in turn damaged, lovingly innocent, and vindictive. While the story was written in a way to shine the light of blame on Nancy for leaving her faithful boyfriend for a life of extravagance being with Femi provided her, Femi shouldn’t come out unscathed. Nearly All the Men in Lagos Are Mad underscores with wit, humour, wisdom and sensitivity, the perils of trying to find lasting love and companionship in Africa's most notorious city.From the story of a deceptive hookup girl to a woman who carries on wickedness from her teenage years into adulthood. I also found it amusing how you can pretty much replace Lagos with Lilongwe and the message remains the same. Almost two years later, Ugochukwu Ugonna’s ‘Who Drove Nearly All the Men in Lagos Mad’ hits the market. Even the story featuring gay men follows the same pattern: man and woman fall in 'like' and enter what the woman thinks is a monogamous relationship. There were men afraid of commitment, power thirsty ones, egoistic, and all collectively felt like Kings that deserved to objectify women, use them as tools, have their way; like women were created to dance to their tunes with whatever melody as long as it suited their low desires or gave them that absurd high of being overentitled and unaccountable for their deeds.
