Currently based in Lawrence, I am an Assistant Professor of African digital humanities at the University of Kansas where I teach courses on social media and African cultural studies in the African and African American Studies Program. My research focuses on digital literary studies, and the platformization of African cultural productions. My monograph, Cultural Netizenship was published in the Spring of 2022 by Indiana University Press. You will find some reviews published by JALA here.

I enjoy experimenting with new recipes, watching soccer, and writing poetry. My first collection Where the Baedeker Leads chronicles my experiences living in Lagos and Saskatoon. Please visit Alllitup to read two poems from the collection. You may also like my co-edited anthology of poems on the 2020 #EndSARS movement in Nigeria. My ongoing book project explores discourses of online literary controversies and cancel culture in African literature.
