I’m really good at connecting dots and drawing meaning and magic out of things.
A 2020 Morland African Writing Scholar, my byline has featured in publications including The Guardian and The Africa Report. My short stories (in which I use the weird to explore the mundane) have been published in places including Litro Magazine and the Writers Project of Ghana anthology, The Sea Has Drowned the Fish. I was also a finalist in the inaugural John La Rose Memorial Short Story Competition (2008).
Contact me for thought-provoking pieces on music, African popular culture, counterculture, philosophies, and education. I also write creative nonfiction and short stories. Below is but a small sample of my writing over the years (you can find more on my blog):
Tampered Press: Care is a New Cool: Arts, Politics & Empathy in an Another Accra (2019) (also carried in OFF TO magazine‘s Accra Issue)
The Africa Report: When Education Yearns to Be Free (2018)
The Guardian: The Absolute Beginners’ Guide to Pidgin (2017)
The Guardian: Sex, Fauxnogamy & the Married Man (2015)
Nonfiction: The Fall
In 2020, I was picked out of 992 entrants from all over the world for a Miles Morland African Writing Scholarship to give me the financial freedom to write a book. The Fall will be a deeply personal narrative memoir connecting the tragic death of my younger brother to matters of masculinity, mental health, romance and relationships; broken over generations and crushed under the weight of contemporary Ghanaian culture.
