Project Description

Rising football star and Tottenham FC top striker Bubaraye Dabowel’s career is torpedoed by freak accident at a game against a crack Manchester United squad. Unable to play professional football, he is torn between his supermodel South African wife, Nikiwe Dlomo, and a longing to return to Nigeria. Their fraught return plays out against a backdrop of infidelity and betrayal and his nurturing of the talented but troubled Keme “Ricochet” D’aziba.

Don’t Die on Wednesday is a story of the game of life, when life suddenly becomes laced with danger and fear, and no one knows how the game will end.


“Buba’s highs and lows are reminiscent of the experiences of many footballers today. I really enjoyed reading Don’t Die on Wednesday and I would recommend it to every lover of lover of good stories”

Finidi George, Ex-Super Eagles/AFC Ajax right winger


“Who in heaven’s name writes this kind of story? What a book! Breathtaking!”
