Title: The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives

Author: Lola Shoneyin


When Baba Segi woke up with a bellyache for the sixth day in a row, he knew it was time to do something drastic about his fourth wife’s childlessness. For Baba Segi, his collection of wives and gaggle of children are a symbol of prosperity, success, and a validation of his manhood. All is well in this patriarchal home until Baba arrives with wife number four: a quiet, college-educated, young woman named Bolanle. Jealous and resentful of this interloper who is stealing their husband’s attention, Baba Segi’s three wives begin to plan her downfall. How dare she offer to teach them to read, they whisper.


They vow to teach her a lesson instead. What they don’t know is that Bolanle hides a terrible secret – a secret that unwittingly exposes the deception and lies upon Baba Segi’s household rests. A stirring tale of men and women, mothers and children, servitude and independence.
