Adéwalé John Adéyẹyé was born in Lagos, Nigeria and moved to England at the age of 12, where he studied. In 2005, he qualified as an Architect and gained a Master’s degree in the subject in 2007. He began writing his first novel, ‘Jelë’, whilst completing his Master's thesis in Architecture entitled ‘Masquerade’.
Originally lured by the freedom literature offers, he soon discovered that the discipline required for writing an academic paper is also applicable to writing a novel. This is the first of a number of books planned for scheduled release.
