"This collection of poetry both reflects and creates attitudes that we now regard as characteristic of our age – the crisis of nationhood and the burden of citizenship. Ebi Yeibo’s White Masks unambiguously exposes the dystopian nightmares of a nation and a people’s willing detachment from humanity. While some poets of his generation are content with dreaming of an ideal world, in White Masks, Yeibo, through the resources of memory, experiments with the idea of a better world."

Professor Ogaga Okuyade, Niger Delta University, Wilberforce Island, Bayelsa State, Nigeria.

"…Ebi Yeibo’s White Masks is a collection inspired by hope. In whichever way it is read, it cannot but invite a political and social argument. Highly recommended to the discerning reader—to anyone who takes more than a passing interest in any aspect of modern Nigerian poetry."

Professor Hyginus Ekwuazi, University of Ibadan, Nigeria

"…In theme, temper, and style, Yeibo reconfigures human experience in a manner that makes it ethereal. In White Masks, Yeibo charts new frontiers of human experience in culture, environment, spirituality, and history, while also foregrounding the nuances that give his earlier poetry its distinctiveness."

Professor Sunday Awhefeada, Delta State University, Abraka, Nigeria
