  1. Yvonne Chioma Mbanefo is the kind of writer or going to the down a lexicographer that use to sing and dance by the words. She can makes you see, touch, hear, and delve into the treasure island of Igbo language. Thanks. I urge everyone with an interest in Igbo language to buy and read the book. Chinua Achebe the deceased once called Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie "....Adichie came almost completely made" if he is alive he could have called Yvonne with the same alphabets as Adichie.
