Enoch Tanyi Reviews The Naming of Femi’s Brother by Kiser D Barnes

The Naming of Femi\'s BrotherVerdict: carrot

As the title implies, The Naming of Femi’s Brother is about a child-naming ceremony. In this book, published by George Ronald Publisher, Kiser D. Barnes shows how tradition and religion co-exist harmoniously. The family at the center of the story, the Aladetan’s, are not only Yoruba but also members of the Bahá’í religion. But their religious persuasion does not make them discard their traditional way of naming their children.
