BOOK: Dele Weds Destiny by Tomi Obaro (Hodder Studio)

Tomi Obaro’s novel Dele Weds Destiny is about a couple of immigrant medical students from Nigeria who meet somewhere in the UK and fall in love. When they announce their plans to marry and request permission to do so, their parents are thrilled. It is going to be an amazing wedding! Destiny’s mother Funmi is especially pleased because, as a tycoon’s wife and socialite, this wedding will remind the elites of Lagos of her staying power and of her husband’s continued influence across Nigeria. Additionally, they are proud that their daughter is accomplished and is marrying into a socially appropriate family.
