I’m Ladipo Titiloye, a writer, and storyteller. On this blog, I share stories, short essays and discuss writing and storytelling.
Born in Lagos in the late 80’s, I lived with people who used stories to define every aspect of their lives.
I was lucky to sit at the feet of my grandmother and listen to folk tales, despite living in the city. I count myself lucky to have lived during the good days of NTA’s Tales by Moonlight.
This was how my love for stories began and transformed into writing.
In the early 2000s, it made sense to avoid a chance at Catholic priesthood for a 4-year study at the Department of Performing Arts, University of Ilorin.
What I wanted was to tell stories but certain realities pulled me into three years of civil service.
I worked as an Enrolment Officer and IT User Support for the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) where I was involved in the installations of identity systems in over 30 locations in Kogi State.
However, I left in 2017 to start a media business, Josephanna Media where I develop content for the web and creative industries.
When I’m not writing or reading, I spend my time learning how to make crochet booties. I live in Ibadan with my wife and daughter. for any enquiry or information, send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
