Talking about one's self is most times a tough task, except if you are a thoroughbred narcissist. However, it is imperative to scribble a few words in this bio.
In the past, my bios used to say 'My name is Olapoju Kolapo, I'm a writer who writes everything and anything'.
Short, Factual and Precise, yet not enough.
Well, so I was severally told.

Now, it goes this way;
I'm a Poet, Writer, Entrepreneur, Columnist, Editor, etc.
I'm a Columnist/Staff Writer for Glam&Essence Magazine. I'm an Editor/staff writer at Picturez Magazine.
I've also written a TV series titled 'Hustle2fame' for Naijaninjas.
My articles can be found on major sites/blogs on the web, eg etc.
My Poetry can be found on etc.
I'm presently working on a Collection of 'Poems and Plays', to be published sometime in 2014.

As cliche as it sounds, I’ve been penning words
I don’t even remember how or when, anymore.
I only remember reading the last page of Achebe's Anthills of the Savannah a long time ago, and realizing that I also had a lot to say.
Basically, I was born to do this.
Pay attention to the name. There's a lot to be written.
