LEKE LEKE Is a Yoruba word for Cattle Egret
Anago's book is divided into four parts: Folk Stories, Poems, Maxims and Adventure pictures.

Anago James Akeem Osho titled his book Leke Leke because of a folk story in the book by that title which teaches that there is a difference between wisdom and understanding. It is possible for a wise man to be poor but a wise person that has understanding can never be poor. 

Understanding is the instrument that is applied to make wealth out of wisdom or one's potential.
