Background
share close

Eromo Egbejule is a Nigerian writer and journalist who writes on arts & culture, technology, business, human interest, conflict and the intersection with everyday living. His works have been published on various platforms including The Guardian, Reuters, Africa Check and The Africa Report and have also been translated into a number of languages including French & Spanish.

Eromo is quite fearless and loves to go where the story is.  He was in Liberia to cover the ensuing situation when there was an outbreak of Ebola and recently embarked on his new project “Days of Their Lives” which is a collection of stories of everyday people; of survival and restoration; of rebirth and economic empowerment; of mothers smiling again; of children learning to dance in peace time; on the foundations of ruins from a war that has ravaged the North East region since 2009

In 2014, he was a recipient of the Ticket Fund of the Prince Claus Fund for Culture & Development, Amsterdam and this year, 2016, he has been nominated for the CNN Multichoice African Journalist Awards.

Eromo will share his wealth of experience as a freelancer on the next episode of the Afropreneur Podcast.
