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 I am also a poet, with more than 600 published poems to my name with lots of unpublished ones kept as personal archives. I am also a published author of two 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.
