Hello Olamide. Can you please describe yourself in a few words?


When did you discover that you had a passion for writing and why did you decide to follow this passion?

I discovered my passion for writing in 2013, few months after I made a decision to follow Jesus. I would say I was compelled to follow this passion because for the longest time I had always wondered what I was good at doing and once I found it I could not let go.

Can you tell us what you love most about writing?

Words are beautiful and powerful. With a few words carefully strung together, a broken spirit is uplifted.

In what ways have you grown as a writer and poet since you started writing?

I have grown in the way that I express myself, discovering my style and not trying to be like anyone else.

Shine 100% Which author/ poet (dead or alive) would love to spend a day with if given a chance and why?

Jackie Hill Perry. I love her heart and the fact that she’s a complete woman.

When you are struggling to find inspiration, can you share some of the things that you do find that inspiration to write?

I get quiet before God, I remind myself that the words come from my Father’s heart, I watch spoken word videos and I read as well.

What will you say has been your biggest achievement as a writer so far?

I would say it’s keeping my eyes on purpose.

Where would you like writing to take you in the future?

To the place where I write about the future of nations. To the gathering of Kings and Queens.

What advice do you have for people who know that they have a message to share but fear keeps holding them back?

Dive into the perfect love of your Father where fear loses its hold on you.
