I'm the Co-Creator and Head Writer of Africa’s biggest TV series at the moment, SLUM KING. I'm also the Co-Writer on the Netflix Original gritty thriller, SHANTY TOWN, and the Creator of DUST, an Africa Magic Original Telenovela.

I'm the AMVCA8 Winner for Best Writer Movie & TV Series, with the genre-bending Amazon Prime movie INTRODUCING THE KUJUS. I'm also an multiple award-winning writer with the Netflix medical drama STRAIN, which won the Urban Film Festival Best International Movie 2020, Best Screenplay at The African Film Festival 2020, and Best Social Message Movie at the Best of Nollywood Awards 2021.

To date, I have developed over 45,000 minutes of prime-time television. I'm the Head Writer of the Igbo 130-episode Telenovela MASQUERADES OF ANIEDO. I've also worked as Story Editor and Staff Writer on several critically acclaimed shows: TINSEL, COVENANT, DILEMMA, ENAKHE, & AJOCHE. I co-developed and co-wrote Ndani TV’s gritty web series AFRO CITY SEASON 2 and I'm a writer on Accelerate TV’s comedy web series EXTRAS and BIG BOOK OF LIES.

I've multiple degrees in Creative Writing, TV & Animation Writing and I'm a bestselling author with works such as HOW I FASTED ON CHRISTMAS DAY, A MAID’S TALE, I WILL HAVE AN AFFAIR, AMELEVI, & IDARA AND THE MAGIC SCHOOL BAG.
