Obiageli Danjuma~The Woman Behind The Men.

My good people, nno nu. kedu? Don’t be alarmed that just means welcome and how are you in Igbo. I know you must know by now that that’s where I’m from. Specifically I’m from Enugu in Anambra State. It’s in the eastern part of Nigeria. For those of you that know Nigeria, you might be wondering how an Igbo girl (Not a word! I am still a girl, young at heart) as I was saying a girl like myself end up having Danjuma as my surname. One word…love.

“She turned to the sunlight And shook her yellow head,And whispered to her neighbor- -Winter is dead.”

Gee m nti…Listen to me…there is real love and what we make ourselves believe is love. The Bible says not to be yoked with unbelievers. For all the wrong reasons, I yoked myself to a dashing young Muslim man and I payed for it dearly. I was living in London when I met Zayd, he was not a bad man but we didn’t share the same fundamental philosophies however we did love each other. Or so I thought… his decision changed the course of life for my sons and I. I was very angry with him for a long time. Note to all you young women out there…trust your instinct, if something smells like a rat, it is a rat. When a man hides you from his family…something is wrong. (I can’t go further, Ms. Unoma is looking at me one kind of way…read A Scoop Of Love to find out what I mean.)

But God is faithful..His joy was and continues to be my strength. I raised three well rounded boys so I come to tell you, “For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.” Psalm 30:5. If anybody had told me living in East London raising three boys with no family that one would turn out to be the owner of a conglomerate ( my Rasheed had to embrace forgiveness to walk into his destiny) or a medical doctor, my Jabir, that operates on peoples heart (if only he will let Jesus work on his) or my international soccer star, Kamal…I would have told them kia! asi. It is a lie.

Nne nu m o…look at me…I have been talking and talking and haven’t introduced my self. Ndo nu… Sorry o. For those of who who do not know me, I am the mother of those three men that Ms. Unoma has introduced to you since last year..the ones she calls the Danjuma brothers. Eh umu m…my children. You have already met diokpala m…that is an igbo phrase for first son, Rasheed. I used to call him my little protector (in a way he still is) I’m honored God allowed me to bring him into this world and I am so proud of him. I love all my sons dearly but Rasheed became a man when he shouldn’t have. I exposed him to so much, a child should never have to go through that. It shall be well with him all the days of my life.

Very soon you will meet the first of my ejima, my twins. Jabir, my strong, opinionated, comforter. I knew he would grow up caring for people. My doctor… just like his brothers, he is stuck in his ways. But unlike Rasheed, he is a womanizer…they think I don’t know about the women he carried… carried? that is our Naija way of saying dated…Deep down, all the women he carried was just a way for him to forget the one that broke his heart. I sure hope they can get it together before it is too late. I saw her in Abuja when Rasheed was marrying my sweet Ibiso. Damisi is a good Christian girl, I hope she can show my son the way to Jesus.

As for Kamal, you will know him better when you read about Jabir. They are like 5 and 6. So close. Jabir protects him and I am happy for that…I need to find him a sweet young girl to marry…

“So I guess you’re my knight in shining armor coming to rescue the damsel in distress…” The tone of her voice was not lost on him. There was an edge in it he didn’t like. She continued, “How many of us have there been ove

Synopsis:

When Jabir Danjuma met Damisi Odinga years ago, it wasn’t necessarily love at first sight. However, their attraction can’t be denied. Just as he begins to feel the forbidden emotion, Damisi breaks up with him and moves half way across the world.
Now, Damisi has a request that only Jabir could fulfill. Their encounter sets off a series of events that leave them both with fresh pain and hurt. They vow never to see each other again, but fate has a different idea.

#TeaserTuesday ~Snippet from Anchored By Love : Her Time Was Up

Anchored by Love“Good morning, Jay darling.” Angela’s voice interrupted his memory. She sat up and brushed her cool lips on his cheek. Her jet-black hair fell to her side. Its wavy nature and length were a result of her mixed Indian and African-American heritage.
He hated when she called him Jay and had told her that several times. Jabir meant “comforter,” and he wanted to keep it that way. His mother always told him he had always shown compassion at a young age. He liked to think his name was the reason he turned out to be a doctor. “Jay” distorted its meaning. However, Jabir knew the real reason he disliked the name. His late father used to call him “Jay Boy.” The man and the name both got on his nerves
“Morning. I see you didn’t leave.”
“No.” She rubbed his chest. “You were out cold when we got back from Vegas last night, so I decided to fulfill my new role and take care of you.” She rubbed her hand gently across his chest and winked.
Her sexiness was his downfall. He closed his eyes, trying to focus on what he should be doing—letting her down easy. Before he could gather his thoughts and speak, she scooted to the edge of the bed, put on his shirt and made her way to the bathroom. His eyes followed the sway of her hips until she was out of sight. He shook his head and exhaled.
“What role? What are you talking about?” he murmured to himself. “This has to end.” There was a time and season for everything. Angela’s time was up.

From Anchored By Love, Book II Sons Of Ishmael Series. Coming Nov 2015
