Ebinimi, star mechanic of Kalakala Street, is a man with hapless knack for getting in and out of trouble. Some of his troubles are self-inflicted : like his recurring entanglements in love triangles, and his unauthorized joyriding of a customer's car which sets off a chain of dire events involved drugs, crooked politicians and assassins. Other troubles are caused by the panorama of characters in his life, like: his sister and her dysfunctional domestic situation, the three other mechanics he employs, and the money loving preacher who has all but taken over his home. 

The story is fast paced with surprising twists and a captivating plot - a Dickensque page turner. This is Ebinimi's story but it is about a lot more than him. It is an exploration of the dynamics between working class people as they undertake a colourful tour of Yenagoa, one of Nigeria's lesser known cities, while using humour, sex and music as coping mechanism for the everyday struggle. 

It is a modern classic tale of small lives navigating a big city.
