Rebecca Akindele, also known as Becca, is a young graduate of Lagos State Polytechnic. “I am a writer, a blogger and an aspiring publisher.
“My art is writing. At first, I loved reading. I still do I started writing as a hobby. I’ve loved writing since I was a child and due to my love for writing, I studied Mass Communication.”
“Presently, I’ve written two fictional novels, although they are yet to be published.”
“Also, I’m working on publishing my first magazine and due to the fact that I’m new, I’m finding it difficult to get people to advertise on my magazine. This is normal for every first-time publisher I guess.”
“I draw my inspiration mostly from badly written scripts. Most of the time, when I watch Nollywood or Ghollywood, I’m often unsatisfied with the storyline and next thing, I’m already writing a storyline.”
“I also get inspired by happenings around me. For example, my entry for this freestyle was based on what I experienced.”
Speaking about art and culture in Nigeria, Rebecca says, “I must say it is very rich and thank God, we are already tapping into the richness of our art and culture.”
“I believe that if a lot of government, companies or individuals pay attention to our art and culture, a lot of Nigerian youths will be empowered. They will be confident enough to take art as a full-time job, thereby reducing unemployment in the country.”
