I did three years of college before dropping out to pursue my writing full time. I was also an active member of the U.S Air Force and Army national Guards for six years, where I worked as a warrant officer and I learned all this tactic things about governmental procedures and the rules of law and order (my bolding!).
But is Korede Abayomi even his real name?
...the fact that I lost my younger brother to a gun fight inspired me to write and put Shebang! on the market. How old was your brother? Twenty-eight. His name was Ayinde Somadhi. That drives me to my next question. What can you tell us about your name Korede Abayomi, what does it mean? Well first of all, I am a Nigerian-American. My mom is the highest ranking female Chief in Nigeria, and she has been published many times over. Her name is Chief FAMA if all you guys care to look.
Ayinde Somadhi was murdered in 2010:
Mr Abayomi's second novel The Oracle contains photographs by someone called Tifase Somadhi.
Chief Fama is indeed the author of several books about Nigerian religion, and since 1990 she has been married to Chief Ifabowale Sohma Somadhi. I e-mailed her to ask if she is Mr Abayomi's mother but she hasn't replied yet.
