Hey everyone, my name is Okala Elesia.
You probably remember me from the hit TV show, World’s Most Powerful Dads. As you’ll know, that ended in ignominy when it transpired I’m not particularly strong and don’t have any children.
I’m Nigerian-British, grew up in Cornwall, and now live in London. I write about liminal spaces, weird Britain, and all sorts of stuff to be honest. My stories have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, while I was recently commended by the Laura Kinsella Prize. I’m currently studying for my MA in Creative Writing at Birkbeck.
Shoot me a message if you wanna collab on something.
