Posted on February 8, 2024
Nigerian writer, journalist and author Tomi Falade is kicking off 2024 on a high note as she’s set to unveil two literary exploits on Sunday, February 11.
The event is billed to be hosted by Gbenga Adeyinka 1st at De Rembrandt Hotel, Alausa, Lagos and will see Falade unveiling her first two books, ‘OLOBUN: Matriarch Of Ondo, Mother Of Legacy’, and ‘Dates From Hell.’
Falade, an entertainment editor with Independent Newspapers Ltd, opened up on her foray into the world of writing as an author and journalism saying, “My love for literature is what led me to journalism, and after over a decade in the media industry, my flair for telling extraordinary stories has not waned. I believe it is time to share another facet of my literary exploits with the world in drama and story form.”
On why she chose to launch the two books together, she revealed that it was mere coincidence.
“The plan was to originally launch Dates From Hell in 2023, but prevailing circumstances at the time made me move it to 2024. Now that the two books are ready I just thought that I could do both at the same time, so here we are. This is why I tagged the event a book party.
“Many people do not realise that literature can be fun, this event is to show that we can genuinely have fun with literature.”
‘OLOBUN: Matriarch Of Ondo, Mother Of Legacy’ is a rich drama set in 15th-century Oyo and explores themes of adventure, exile, and the birth of the lasting legacy of the Ondo Kingdom while ‘Dates From Hell’ is a collection of short stories based on true events of people on romantic dates.
Tomi’s flair for scripting extraordinary stories is evident in her extensive body of work, which includes well over a thousand stories and articles. Her portfolio encompasses a variety of genres, with dozens of published features and investigative stories that reflect her commitment to delivering compelling narratives.

Her ability to capture the essence of human experiences and translate them into captivating narratives has earned her respect and admiration within and beyond the journalism community.
“Dates From Hell” is poised to captivate readers with its promise of gripping tales, showcasing Tomi Falade’s unique storytelling style. OLOBUN is a recapturing of history reminiscent of the great playwrights of old. With her literary prowess, Tomi remains a noteworthy figure in Nigerian literature, leaving an indelible mark with each piece she crafts.
