About Last Night Review by @MASKURAID

Otutubuike is a young man living with the scars of sexual abuse. Molested by his male teacher at a young age, he develops homosexual leanings which grow with him to adulthood. His Aunt whom he confides in believes only ‘God’ can cure his ‘ailment’ and trusts an adulterous Pastor Yemi for the job of deliverance.

After an attempt at ‘normal’ sex with Mercy (a colleague) ends in disaster, Otu’s internal conflict snowballs into depression and he attempts to cut off his male member in a bid to ‘correct’ his anomaly and end his pain.  The incident and his subsequent sojourn in hospital however brings him closer to her and ultimately becomes the path to redemption for both of them.

‘About Last Night’ written in Anaba Abigail’s distinct style is a story of personal struggles and the tortuous search for answers. It highlights the sometimes erroneous reliance on religion as a panacea to all problems in the African society, chronicles the silent hurt and shattered lives of victims of sexual abuse and the importance of friendship, love and acceptance in helping them heal.
