I am Balogun Adenike, born in Benin Republic but grew and schooled in Nigeria. A graduate of Foreign Languages Department from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun state. I hold a B.A degree in German and French Languages.
Currently I am a Corp member, serving in Lagos state.
I am a writer, blogger, art and book critic. I started writing at the age of 12 and some of my writings have been published on a couple of online magazines and Vanguard News -the newspaper digital website. Since I couldn’t contain my passion for writing and no formal training in writing, I started a blog -therosespetal.com- that features artworks reviews, musings, flash fiction and nonfiction stories.
In my leisure time I play scrabble and I’m learning to play the violin. And when I’m not speaking German or French, I go for a good read, art exhibitions, open reading and poetry slams.
