What was your favorite book as a child?
The Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton
Do you remember the original reason or motivation why you started writing creatively?
I started creative writing because during my growth into a teenager, I didn’t really prefer opening up to anyone. I figured out I needed more than that, thus started opening my emotions more through poetry.
What was the most adventurous or thrilling thing you ever did/experienced?
This would be visiting the historic Olumo Rock in Abeokuta.
Do you listen to music while reading or writing?
No, I don't. I felt it’s distracting. I only listen to music when I need to be refreshed, or to cool my head.
