The remarkable, moving and exciting autobiography from the very talented award-winning singer and actress Patti Boulaye, is published on March 10th. It charts her riveting life story through wealth, poverty and civil war, to showbusiness stardom and success in Britain and her birth country Nigeria.
Patti’s enthralling life journey which has been written with great candour and integrity, takes the reader through her very difficult childhood, her parents violent divorce, utter poverty and virtual slavery in a backwards town, to wealth in the turmoil of elections in the independent Nigeria and near death in the genocide of the Biafra War.
Her redoubtable mother instilled enormous strength and the love of God in her heart through her own many examples of faith and fortitude. She observed when Patti had grown up, that hers was still “The faith of a child”
