Yinka, Where is Your Huzband? is a rom-com set in Peckham, the story follows a thirty-something British Nigerian woman who is searching for love while constantly fielding the question in the title from her mum and her many aunts.
The idea was sparked by Lizzie’s own experience – way back in my twenties, her mum (bless her) would ask her the whereabouts of my husband (she wasn’t being rhetorical).
Yinka, Where is Your Huzband? by Lizzie Damilola Blackburn
Yinka wants to find love.
Her mum wants to find it for her.
But how can she find a husband when she is surrounded by her many aunties who frequently (and loudly) pray for her delivery from singledom, has a preference for chicken and chips over traditional Nigerian food, and a bum she’s she is far too small as a result? Oh, and the fact that she’s a thirty-one-year-old South Londoner who doesn’t believe in sex before marriage is a bit of an obstacle too…
When her cousin gets engaged, she commences, ‘Operation Find A Date for Rachel’s Wedding‘. Armed with a totally flawless(and incredibly specific) plan, will Yinka find herself a husband?
What if the thing she really needs to find… is herself?
