I find it hard to write about myself, honestly... I'm in my early 20s. I'm Nigerian, in particular I am a Yoruba who is fascinated by the ancient Yoruba civilisation and history. I have no problem identifying as African because this way I get to claim all African history as MINE and just to clear things, I have no interest in ancient Egypt. I love music and go through different music stages, I'm still in my Korean pop phase but right now I'm listening to soukous. I love travelling, my latest destination was Tokyo where I took my current profile picture in one of those booths they call purikura. I am multilingual, English is my first language, I understand Yoruba and Hausa, I speak French very well, Japanese relatively well but I'm still a beginner in Korean. I grew up watching sci-fi TV shows and anime, this apparently affects my writing today but I never noticed. I didn't discover speculative fiction by Black authors till I was in my late teens, this gave me the courage to write in that genre. I still have a lot of reading to catch up with Black speculative fiction but I believe I will get there. Till then I make do with online stories and my amateur writing. I blog mainly at Wordpress which I guess is my personal and 'research' blog. I recently started a Dreamwidth journal which I hope to make my history, culture and creative space which may provide inspiration to those authors who want to set their speculative fiction in Africa or who want to build alternate worlds based on African history.
