Review: Lonely Days By Bayo Adebowale

Lonely Days by Bayo Adebowale is a story about how women who suddenly find themselves in the garment of widowhood suffer pitiable maltreatment. Bayo Adebowale is one among the celebrated Nigerian authors. His contributions to literary growth have gathered him a whole lots of respects and praises. He was a senior lecturer in English at The Polytechnic, Ibadan.

Lonely Days by Bayo Adebowale is storybook that falls under the prose genre of literature; same as Faceless by Amma Darko. The story shows Yaremi (the protagonist) wallow in hardship and village dogma while combating the maltreatments that come with being a widow in Kudi village. After sickness separated her and her husband (Ajumobi) she had to fend for herself via her taffeta cloth business which she put in her best and became the envy of other village women.

The story tells that Yaremi had a lot of men admirers in her mid-fifties because she was very attractive but ever since she rejected all admirers on the "cap-picking" day, she was also considered to
be rude and proud among other allegations...

The main setting of Lonely Days by Bayo Adebowale is called Kufi; the village where most of the scenes unfolded. Kufi village had its custom and tradition still untouched even in the midst of civilization; their believes about the falling star, folktale, and many other primitive ideologies still remained in Kufi. Few of the characters are Yaremi, Ajumobi, Uncle Deyo, Segi, Dedewe, etc.

Based on the storyline of Lonely Days, few of the themes are loneliness, widow maltreatment, the need for female empowerment, etc.
There is a THEME OF LONELINESS in the story from the prove that Yaremi wasn't just a widow but a lonely widow even Woye was soon out of her life and the helping hands of Uncle Deyo could not fill the space of Ajumobi in her heart. The THEME OF WIDOWHOOD is the centre theme of Lonely Days by Bayo Adebowale. Widows suffer discrimination and marginalization and in Kufi village, Yaremi, Fayoyin, Radeke, Dedewe are victims but only Yaremi was adamant; she refused to bend. The widows narrated their plights and widowhood experiences to Yaremi when they paid her visit to reveal how vulnerable the widows in Kufi village are.
The NEED FOR WOMEN EMPOWERMENT also happens to be part of the themes in the novel. The truth remains that other widows in Kufi could not bravely stay independent like Yaremi and their lack of ability to remain independent brought more of the masculine dominance. Bayo Adebowale indirectly use the medium of his book to preach women empowerment.
