Outcast

The life of parents who their children died years after they were birthed. It continued, until Obiefuna was born. Villagers believed it to be an Ogbanje spirit, and they taunted Mama, Obiefuna's mother as an OSU. Obiefuna's survival was shocking, but he had to sustain his father's name and also live up to his name Obiefuna. This story is based on Obiefuna's sojourn as he narrates his ordeal as an outcast in a little village of Ukpor.
