THE SPIRIT OF DANFO, a story of class, power, the legacy of civil
war, and maverick gods in Nigeria.
In DANFO, Ebulu, a brilliant student, longs to restore his mother,
Nkoli, ostracised by the village at his father's death. Ebulu makes a
tragic mistake and tempts fate by switching majors from medicine
to philosophy. The choice is the first mistake in a chain that imperils
his family and his promising career. The gods are saboteurs. Ebulu
will learn hard lessons on the streets of Lagos, where the pace is set
by the city's pushy, death-defying, and improvisational danfo
drivers.
DANFO is an intimate portrait of Nigerian city life, illustrating the
resilient kindness and humanity of everyday people like Binta and
striving to capture the voice of Lagos--most dialogue is in local
patois, including Yoruba and Igbo- while aiming a critique at the
city's notorious patronage and corruption
