Diekoye Oyeyinka has lived on three different continents – Africa, Europe and America .

He spent his first fifteen years in Nigeria and the next ten years between Europe and the US.

He obtained a BA Degree in Economics from Georgetown University and then a Masters degree in Urbanization and Development at the London School of Economics.

Meanwhile he also completed a six-month internship at the United Nations ILO in Ethiopia.

His first novel, Stillborn, was published in Kenya in 2014 by East African Educational Publishers Ltd.

It follows five Nigerian characters whose lives intersect and paints a vivid picture of Nigeria from independence to 2010.

In Stillborn, Oyeyinka explores the tragedy of independence, and the controversial idea that maybe Nigeria was given independence too soon.

“The Nigerian story is the African story, a story we wrote ourselves without perhaps being fully conscious of what we were trying to tell.”

Oyeyinka currently lives in Lagos.
