Writer - Performer - Activist
Born and raised between Nigeria and Austria, I grew up within a big circle of extended family and friends, where telling stories was an essential aspect of our everyday lives.
I fell in love with children's books at an early age on account of my mother being a teacher and soon after, aspired to be a writer myself.
With a bit over 17 and a stretch to 18 years, I stood on my first poetry slam stage and later became the two-time reigning Austrian U20 first-runner up in 2017 and 2018.
My poems tell of the experiences of being a black Christian woman in a predominantly white environment. They are performed in English, German and "D-english".
August 2019 marks the genesis of my musical duo "precious and i" with ultimate queen and friend Isabella Krasser. Together we celebrate the soulful juxtaposition of spoken word and harmonious music.
