From his collections:Tales from the Savannah

In a quaint town, nestled amidst the rolling hills and serene landscapes, lived a man named Adewale. He was a philosopher renowned across Africa for his profound wisdom and numerous publications. Adewale was wealthy, not just in material terms, but in the richness of his experiences and the depth of his thoughts. Despite his accomplishments, one aspect of life had always eluded him—true love.

At the age of 50, Adewale decided to embark on a journey across Africa, seeking the essence of life and hoping, perhaps, to stumble upon the love he had never known. He traveled from the deserts of the Sahara to the savannas of Kenya, from the bustling markets of Lagos to the serene shores of Zanzibar. Everywhere he went, he shared his knowledge, wrote extensively, and touched countless lives with his insights.

Years turned into decades, and though Adewale met many remarkable women, none could pierce the veil of his guarded heart. It wasn’t that he was incapable of love, but rather that he had constructed a test to discern its true nature.

When a woman professed her love to him, Adewale would gently say, “Woman, I don’t merit your love. I am too old for you. Marry my nephew over there. He is younger and handsome.”

The woman, puzzled, would turn to look for this supposed nephew. If she did, Adewale knew her love was not genuine, driven instead by a desire for youth or beauty. He believed that true love would see beyond his age and appearance, focusing solely on him.

Years went by, and Adewale’s test continued to reveal the fleeting nature of many affections. Satisfied with his life but having never found the true love he sought, Adewale eventually returned to his hometown. He poured his reflections and experiences into a memoir, capturing the essence of his journey and the profound lessons he had learned about life and love.

At the remarkable age of 105, Adewale passed away, leaving behind a legacy of wisdom and a story that would inspire generations. His memoir became a beacon for those seeking the deeper truths of life and love, a testament to the idea that true love is rare and must be recognized for its pure and selfless nature.

Even though Adewale never found his true love, his journey was not in vain. It was a testament to the power of self-awareness and the pursuit of genuine connections. His life reminded everyone that love is not merely about finding someone to grow old with, but about finding someone who loves you for who you truly are, beyond all superficial measures.

And so, the story of Adewale, the philosopher who sought true love, became a timeless tale, reminding everyone that true love, though rare, is the most precious treasure one can find.
