Synopsis

While author Ambrose Okosun was just beginning his life in March of 1973 in Lekki, Nigeria, his parents’ marriage was ending. Left with his grandparents to eke out a living in a small village, Okosun was separated from his mother and was not allowed to see his birth father. From a young age, he was dealt a hard life.



In A Boy and His Dream, Okosun shares the struggles he endured and how he strived to overcome those early challenges. From hunger to being ostracized by a polygamist family, he experienced severe poverty while growing up. At the same time, his elders imparted important lessons that Okosun took to heart, including the message that he was in charge of his own destiny.



Learning by trial and error and with guidance from God, Okosun tells how he became educated, earned several degrees, and immigrated to the United States. A Boy and His Dream narrates the story of a man who has come a long way from being an abused little boy in Nigeria.
