I was born and raised in Bariga, Lagos. I studied political science and started my professional artistic career with the Crown troupe of Africa in 2008. in 2014 i started a mobile theatre group “Illuminatetheatre productions” where I work presently as the Curator , choreographer and performer. I have created several works and featured in several projects. The National popup theater Lagos’ project2013 ,Lagos live festival 216, Black heritage festival2011, Contacting the World theater Festival’ UK 2012, Theatreformen theatre festival’ Germany 2014, MMMoCA project2014 and others.
My works are primarily focused on essentialism and existentialism, I am also conscious of socio political issue of my country Nigeria and the Global village. My most preferred performance space is the unconventional or public space picking from my root as an African masquerade.
