In October 2014, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo launched her book, ‘They Call Me Mama, From the Under Bridge Diaries’ in Lagos. She said that her drive to write the book came from her experiences with some street boys and men in Lagos State, and with the book, she aims to give them a human face.
With the proceeds, she also hopes to sustain her efforts in getting the street urchins off the roads and into homes. “My weekly visits to the ‘boys’ in their hideout under the bridge for several years has filled me with unforgettable stories. Reminiscences of these times are the focus of this book. Our original meeting spot which was lovingly referred to as ‘Under’, today; it has been transformed to the Muri Okunola Park.
To me, they are beloved children and they call me “Mama”. They are lost, but can be found. That was why I was compelled to write the book and I dedicate the book to everyone who is lost. To the outcasts on the fringes of society, cast out circumstances, poverty and at times, family.”
Mrs. Dolapo Osibanjo urged the society to always say no to violence against women which she said could be perpetrated through attacks when hawking, marrying a violent and uncontrollable man, handing over the child for others to train, rape, slavery among other forms of assault against women and girls.
