In this chapbook, Amina, a Northern maiden falls in love with a fellow Muslim, Ali. Together, they make use of words in two languages – English and Hausa – to express undeniable feelings for each other.
The authors, Victoria Willie and Jaachi Anyatonwu, defy restrictions set by society and religion and delve deeper in this expression by describing how sweet it feels when their bodies meet and how sweeter it becomes when love is committed unto the hands of Allah in prayer.
You’ll be lifting some of the lines of Amina and Ali to make your lover blush all fifty shades, I bet you.
