Joe Ellah is a 24yr old (Feels like 19 tho!) Lagos-Raised Storytellah.. Like most children born in Lagos, Nigeria.. all I wanted was to BLOW UP!.. You know the Lifestyle.. Fame, Fast Cars, Gold Chains and a Loyal Creative Crew (Trust me, its Real Life.. not fiction) 😂🇳🇬

Academically I did excellent but I've always had my eyes on Art, Literature, Music and Show Business!

I won a competition (WOLE SOYINKA LUMINA PRICE FOR LITERATURE) at age 12 and that gave me the privilege of Lunch with Professor Wole Soyinka, in his Ibadan residence. I started writing shortly afterwards. ❤

Been a rapper since age 9..eventually dabbled into Poetry, Cinematography, Photography and Graphics Design.. Worked as a Waiter in V.I (Victoria Island, Lagos) and Ikoyi (where i was born) for quite sometime as well! 🌹

I thought I would become a Rapper!

Well, currently I'm a freelance Graphics Designer.. Living alone in a cold ghetto by the shores of Alpha Beach, Lagos.. writing Poetry (sonnets to be precise!) and Short Stories.

My genre is CREATIVE NON-FICTION 🌹 🌹 😊😊

I have very interesting experiences, knowledge and stories of Lagos, coupled with the fact that I know the City (streets 😂) quite well, from the Mainland to the Island..

New here on Wattpad and I'm hoping to share my stories here in the form of POETRY and SHORT SERIES/STORIES!

FUN FACT: I am incredibly passionate about everything LAGOS, who's who, what's what and even who is ranking Number 1 on #LAGOS wattpad! 😂 🇳🇬
