Ndimele Kingsley Oluwapelumi is a year 3 Agriculture student in Obafemi Awolowo University. He is from Abia State the southern eastern part of Nigeria, born and bred in the ancient city of Ibadan in Oyo State where he started his primary school education in the late 1990’s at Oladunni Memorial School Bodija in Ibadan.
He graduated from there in 2005 before he started his secondary school education at Methodist Grammar school in Bodija Ibadan, Oyo State, where he used to be the best in his class, although his secondary school days were challenging due to a lack of government intervention.
He had a passion for writing and music, but most of his write ups were anonymous because he doesn’t like fame. He graduated from secondary school at a tender age of 14 which was a landmark achievement. He started working as a teacher and teach in various schools in Lagos and also went to school of Catherine Along Redemption Camp in Lagos.
He gained admission into Obafemi Awolowo university in the year 2014 and resumed in the year 2015 to study Agricultural Economics in the faculty of Agriculture. In his year 1 days, he was focused on his academic goals majorly, but during his year 2 days he became diversified by entering into journalism and founding NOVEL Nigeria as a brand and joined the association of Nigerian Authors.
Novel Nigeria deals with events, blogging, m.c Catherine service, photography and online business and he has worked with Adejumo Kabir and Timi Agbaje.
Since the establishment of Novel Nigeria, he was able to cover Sunny Ade 70th birthday and worked with Yomi Fabiyi during a Nigeria internet business conference – his dream is to reach out to the world and to employ 1000 youths in the next ten years.
Currently he is anchoring the Yes Festival, the first online business summit in Africa, which is starting Oct 2 to 31. Part of the programme is online business lectures, book reviews, yes essay contest and charity tour. His advice to the youth is to get started in whatever plans they have, money is not limitation but the willingness to make impact is the driving force.
