The Bright Jubilees is the book of four different plays. For example, we have Fat Frogs and Juicy Toads. “Fat Frog” is a metaphor for a wealthy man. And a “Juicy Toad” is the metaphor for a superrich woman. The Great Crusade is a radical change. An ex-Islamist, a Boko Haram, became a great evangelist, taking the whole America by storm. The next play is A Case to Kill Africans. Here we have a variety of the global conspiracies. And the last play is A Wayo Governor. “Wayo” means a trickster or a major crook. The imaginary Wayo Governor did all his wayo politics in his wayo Kobokobo land.
