TWEAKCENTRIC Solutions Limited has concluded arrangements for the release of Adewale: My Mother’s Son tomorrow, December 10, 2020. The publication, which is Michael Adesanya’s debut memoir, is an inspiring account of the life of the author.
Adéwálé: My Mother’s Son chronicles Michael’s life against the background of his one-of-a-kind mother, Ìyá Wálé, who goes through stress of life to bring up her child. She strives hard in spite of life’s travails to ensure that her son is a success story.
According to Gbenga Awomodu, Managing Partner at TweakCentric Solutions, “Michael Adesanya’s debut is a very inspiring account of a resilient mother and the boys she birthed and groomed into significance. It is a classic Nigerian story of hope and victory against all odds.”
The memoir brings to life; the inevitable role of a mother’s sacrifice, and the successful young man Michael has become is not far-fetched from his childhood zeal and staying power.
Michael’s story relays emphasis on hope and the will to forge ahead without the means being present. He appraises Ìyá Wálé, from the beginning to the end, as the hero without cape or superpower but bountiful, unquenchable love — The one with so much strength despite bleak hope. This is the resilience every young person needs.
Michael, in a candid and vulnerable manner, shares the mistakes and the remake of his mother’s steps in life. These experiences resound hope for every woman who is on the verge of giving up. From poverty to pain and disappointment, from the absence of a father figure to true forgiveness, he touches every aspect of the lows.
Through Michael’s lens, the communal lifestyle of his hometown in Sagamu, Ogun State, is highlighted even as he makes a case for further socioeconomic development. This he regards as a step in the right direction till the country becomes a better place.
His interest in societal change and development through science and technology – the book reveals, is a long-standing desire burning from his childhood experiences.
A man’s story is as true as his life. In it, he mirrors the challenges of fellow men, the highs and the victories, the lows and the breaking points. Yet, it takes more than guts to share this with people.
“I envy those who can just talk about themselves; those who know their self. I grew up around men who waited until their deathbeds,” Adesanya writes.
