Any writer or poet you look up to: Prof. Niyi Osundare, Prof Akachi Ezeigbo.

Facebook, MySpace, Twitter: None.

What do you think about Obama? He is another dreamer like Martins Luther King, but this time around, dreaming inside the White House.

A perfect day: Any day I learn a new thing.

Three things you are most passionate about: My Pen, My girl and My Income.

Describe yourself in three words: A go-getter


  1. What kind of person does not make use of social networking sites? Only Afro-centrist (wanna-be) artists...

    And pls why do people always have to refer to scholars as professors all the time. The question was simply about writers not about his favourite teachers...

  2. Interesting answers. Do you really sing and why is life your favorite word?
