MICHAEL-XAVIER AWOGBEMI

 

Oluwaseun Michael Xavier Ifetoyosi Chidera Awogbemi, aka (the name at the heading 😉), realized his love for writing because of his temperament growing up and his extremely active imagination. He sees his ability to bring visions from the realm of the unseen into the physical world as his SUPERPOWER (*superhero stance*). 

 

Born on the third planet,149.6 million kilometers from the sun, and spending his formative years on two continents 6,624 miles from each other, this multi-lingual, multi-talented, multi-ethnic, multi-Billionaire (in the nearest future 😉) enjoys making his readers think. 

 

When he's not writing, he enjoys listening to music (anything with a soothing instrumental or strong 808 beat), taking walks to fuel his imagination, and, biggest of all, sleeping. 

 

The amalgamation of Yoruba mythology and certain true-life events gave birth to his first/debut novel Ólúse: The Genesis, a collaborative effort with Ebuka Agujekpe

 

Michael Xavier currently lives in Lagos, Nigeria, with his aunt, uncle, and a German Shepherd named Zeus.
