Why I am who I am.
Before I begin this expose in which I do not even know where it might lead; I’d like to introduce myself.
My name is Ogunnusi Oluwadara. I am African from Nigeria precisely. This threadbare info is necessary because it’s the fons et origio of all I am and might become.
I come from a place where you are celebrated as different only when you follow tradition in a new plate.
A place where you can’t define success by your own passion and aspirations alone but also by the expectations and failed aspirations of your predecessors. It is a legacy kind of thing; defiance unallowed.
Ask me who I am?
I am different,
The voice of rebellion in a respectful cloak.
I am African; a traditionalist with a liberal spirit.
I am divergent! Bold enough to speak yet sober enough to keep quiet.
Don’t pity me my dears,
I am the face of new Africa.
