“Kolokpa, are you simply a fool or much more?” Sisi fixed her eyes on his merry face which tensed slightly.

“Perhaps I just fell into coma, so I’m deaf to any tight-lipped utterances.” Kolokpa retorted.

This is the daily castigations and rebuttals between Kolokpa and his sister Sisi.

This comic story relates the life of one young man, Steve (Kolokpa) Lamptey. Kolokpa is the physically deformed son of Papa Kpa and Maame Kokpa; a deformity that paints a ridiculous picture of the man wherever he goes. He also has a short temper which doesn’t allow him to take any slighting lightly at all. Kolokpa, together with an equally funny buddy, Pope Bongo, wreaks havoc all over their small Lebanon neighbourhood. However, Kolokpa is one brilliant man but his nature makes him appear the opposite. For instance, he has been able to scientifically prove that 1+1=12, and his favourite quote is that, “When you combine a woman and a Mercedes Benz, the end result is a broken heart”. His sister Sisi, wants to change him, but can one really transform a naturally deformed and funny person? How this is going to happen, we live to see.

Joseph was a lazy spoilt brat who knew how to do virtually nothing. He and Grace, his sister, had to live with their aunt after their parent’s death. Due to their aunt’s ill-treatment, they both agreed that, every little dime that they had, they were going to save it. This brought an end to Joseph’s laziness but after sometime, Joseph became too tight-fisted. He started failing to give assistance when it was needed – sometimes to his own siblings (brother Josh and sister Grace). He became too stingy until one particular day, a constant plea of mercy from his beloved sister, caused him to help an unknown and desperate stranger.

Joseph’s future became a mess with business and health. Luckily, he landed himself a deal but found out that, that deal was from a friend he once denied helping. On remembering Joseph’s misdeed, the friend decided to change his mind. How was Joseph going to convince him? If he did not get that deal, his life (health & money) were over.  

Before things could get any worse, an angel showed up – the stranger he helped. But as to whether the stranger was going to help him or not, the question remained. This story is about life and the true benefits derived in giving rather than receiving.
