(This column appreciates the works and impact of Nigerian writers as we believe they need more recognition than they currently get. This is their little corner)
Ejiro Emenike Ukaumune (a.k.a E plus the storyteller) is a passionate writer, author, blogger, singer and creative mentor. Her storytelling journey began from her early childhood where she would tell stories to her classmates and due to her storytelling prowess, they would always ask for more. This continued in secondary school and subsequently she launched her first online story series on her Facebook page. Since then, she has released three e-books on Okadabooks.
E-Plus is an English communication graduate, with an orientation in mass communication and systemic functional linguistics but her passion for storytelling doesn’t stop on the pages of her books as she runs a creative agency – E PLUS The Storyteller. Her agency runs coaching programmes on Creative Writing, Visual arts and Blogging initiative which are aimed at building and encouraging creative potentials, particularly in various schools.
Furthermore, E-Plus is an all-round creative entertainer and is also a musician with two hot singles that are presently raving the airways. They are ‘Good Morning’ and ‘Yes To Your Will’. But there’s more. E-Plus is a voice over artist and has voiced numerous jingles including the popular animation commercial for Okadabooks.
We appreciate her dedication to her creativity and the balance she employs in fitting all the caps she wears well. In fact, when E-Plus is not writing, teaching or recording, she gets creative in the kitchen and tries out new recipes. She calls her family her biggest support system, giving her the right cheerleading to continue striving for excellence. Keep going E-Plus, don’t stop winning!
