Profile Information

Bede Okoro is a poet, writer, songwriter, producer and voice - over artiste. Bede trained first as a technologist, earning a bachelor of technology degree, with specialisation in physics and electronics in 2005 from the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka, Nigeria. His love for the art of creative writing blossomed when he started, as a part-time job while still in the university, working with the Nigerian Television Authority Awka, Nigeria. He scripted and edited several TV and radio programmes (the popular being campus issues), as he was also privileged to freelance with few radio stations across the Niger. He later after his university education worked briefly with the Nigerian Television Authority Akure, Nigeria. Born in the early 80s to a now deceased father and mother, Bede sees creative writing and the art of spoken word as conscious outlets of solutions to the various ills faced by his generation. He hopefully plans to erase all traces of oppression, injustices and hopelessness with his works. His first book 'voices in my head', a collection of poetry, is clearly a powerful showcase of his intentions and visions. Bede has given many poetry readings and performances at locations in and out of Lagos, though his regulars would be taruwa and the anthill 2.0. Bede lives in the ever busy city of Lagos, where he currently works with a telecommunications company.
