About this writer
Kemi and Nnamdi are a young working class couple married for five years without a child.
An accident induced miscarriage in the first year of marriage had left Kemi trying hard to conceive without luck and her mother-in-law who had never liked the fact that Kemi was a Yoruba- an ethnic group different from her son’s – is mounting pressure. Things get to a head when she issues Kemi an ultimatum – get pregnant in Six months or risk being thrown out to pave way for a nubile Igbo maiden.
Frazzled, Kemi tries her best to conceive and accepts a wrong counsel from a friend. She tries Surrogacy in a most unconventional form and the plan boomerangs leaving in its wake misery, dejection, a murder case and ultimately the disintegration of the marriage union she had sought desperately to uphold.
THE SURROGACY DEAL mirrors the travails women in Africa (precisely Nigeria) go through when trying to conceive plus some of the absurd things they often try out of desperation.
