My website is My film which I wrote the script is on Youtube:
I was born July 2nd, 1973 in Lagos State. I did my primary and secondary education in Lagos state and finished in 1992. Afterwards, in 1993-1999 I proceeded to the University of Ilorin where I bagged a Bachelor of Agriculture degree (B.Agric) in Agriculture with focus on Agricultural Extension.
In 1991, during my secondary school days, my first book was published by Macmillan (Nigeria) Publishers Ltd. I actually wrote the book in 1990. It is titled, "The Mischief Makers". I have written several novels afterwards. In 2002, I published another novel titled "AN UNUSUAL KIDNAPPING" published by Champions' World Publications now Champion's World of Corporate Writers. In 2007, I published my third novel "TAMING THE LION" which is sequel to " AN UNUSUAL KIDNAPPING."
I have also written a Christian romance story which was serialised in Vanguard Newspaper, Nigeria in 2009. It is not yet published in book form but the virtual copy is available for sale. I have written a business novel- Journey to Financial Success, it was serialised in BusinessDay newspaper. The virtual copy is also available for sale- the hard copy would be available very soon. I have many other unpublished works, some not yet fully completed.
I currently work as a financial journalist in a business daily in Nigeria. I do ghost writing and write for any organisation or individual anywhere in the world who need my services as long as it is for a good cause and if we can work together within my tight schedule.
I long to return to full-time creative writing and freelancing. It appears journalism is addictive. I'll break this addiction very soon. Journalism has been very fulfiling though and has given me great opportunities to help a whole lot of people- I suppose that's why the addiction lies.
I specialise in writing exceptionally interesting fictions. I fill my write-ups with laughter and suspense but always with something valuable to be learnt.

I used to think studyinng agriculture in the university was unfortunate but it is actually God-designed. I realise now I can use my writing skills to help communate knowledge in agriculture that would be beneficial to the entire human race.
I also do script writing. I can do scripts for television.

Interests:  I find great delight in reading and writing children's novels. I also read and write christian romance novels. Since I enjoy reading very interesting novels, I make it a point of duty to also fill my own writings with intigue and suspense. My novels are
