    [synopsis] => The Somber Years is a corpus celebrating the launch of the forceps of investigative Journalism into one of the world's most ailing social vices-commercial sex. While some advocates give the impression that sex workers have every right to denigrate themselves by staying in the trade, the book, on the contrary offers profound hope, offering the way out to a better and healthier living for those in the trade. The book recognizes that, as human beings, sex workers are undeniably entitled to their fundamental human rights.

It however rejects the situation where women and girls are turned into moneymaking tools. In the course of doing this investigation, I had one-on-one chats with lots of sex workers in Nigeria and in the West African sub-region. One thing is pronounced from the interviews: 90% of these women and girls hate the thing they do-commercial sex and truly seek better alternatives. These better alternatives are honestly hard to come by. The good news however, is, this book brings that long-expected alternative.

The thematic presentation of the fruits of succinct investigation hides nothing about the solutions to this modern slavery. This becomes necessary following the fact that advocates of the legalization of sex work refuse themselves, to become sex workers, and they also will not allow their children or loved ones to practice the trade. So, who are they legalizing illegality for?
