I have been getting lots of requests for my poems to be used for books for pupils/students, to be aired on the radio or to be used as a theme for some symposiums and conferences. Please, feel very free and go ahead to use any which is/are of interest to you. My only condition is "respect my copyright" My work should always be attributed to me. Thank you. As for knowing me, just read below. As for my lyrics for songs, you will have to contact me about that;

A Medical practitioner and a professional writer. An expert Author, who has written more than 2,000 articles across 8 article directories with more than 75% being medically related. I am also a poet, with more than 1000 published poems to my name with lots of unpublished ones kept as personal archives. I am also a published author of four books and they are:

THE SOUL TALKERS: Which is a heavily poetic novel garnished with emotional saga, romance, peer-antagonism and sports in a london-based campus setting. Get a copy and you will never regret reading it. Just type "The soul talkers" and possibly, with my name "Funom makama" and you will see where to get copies.

The second is: BIBLICAL LOVE PSYCHOLOGY: Which digests and breaks down love to the barest simplicity. Everything about love, its manifestation, propagation and nurturing crafted out of psychology and based from the Bible is discussed. Grab a copy and never regret reading it as well. just like the soul talkers, search for this book online and you will get the links where to buy them.

The third is: THE BASTARD CITIZEN: The boiling atmosphere surrounding the main character, simply referred to as "The Doctor", fueled by corruption, greed, envy, hatred, sexual and emotional invitations, compounded by family and societal pressures, makes this story a high intensity drainer, wired by fast paced events exhibiting bad energies, rivalries and enmity at different levels.

The fourth is: THE DEVIL'S ORCHID: The life and adventures of Mr. Boman, right from his teenage years reflect this reality; be it from neighbours, the police, the university, hospital, civil servants, transporters and even friends and relatives. But is Mr. Boman just a victim? Find out as you journey through this world of ruthlessness, corruption, wickedness and strife; characterized by a gloomy atmosphere where everyone is potentially a threat to everyone.
