The noise of the crowd The chants of the seducer The pains of the morning Woke up at night My dreams in endless romance My eyes in endless tears

Many Noises (by ‘Jide Olanrewaju)

  Born 1979 in Ibadan, Oyo State (Nigeria), Jide started writing in 2001 during his pre-degree program at Babcock University, Ogun State (Nigeria), where he obtained his BSc in Computer Science in 2006. Jide, who writes poems, plays and novels, published a book of poetry titled The Poetic Fountain (December, 2010), where Many Noises, which is about “my desire to be successful and dream about being so popular that I break boundaries and lunch into a new world where my potentials can be exploited to the maximum”, is featured. His literary inspirations include the works of Robert Ludlum, Jeffrey Archer, Stephen King, Wole Soyinka, Chinua Achebe; Chimamanda Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun and the Bible. Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein have also been cited as major influences, in his quest to make an impact in the world. August 2013, Jide published a magazine titled – Metamorphosis which featured Wole Soyinka on its cover. It’s a historical magazine which he plans to use to disseminate the knowledge of history to the youth in Nigeria and the world, alongside his blog – www. afroblackrace.wordpress.com. Jide, who obtained an Msc in Computer Science from the University of Ibadan, Oyo State in 2012, has been working as a computer scientist, programmer, web developer and software developer. He has just finished writing his first novel titled “Victor the Child Soldier,” which is about a teenage boy that was forced to be a soldier in a fictional war-torn African country called Nigola. He is forced to fight, kill people and rape women; but he eventually escapes from the war camp, and flees to a village of ‘Rastafaris’, where a spirit appears to him and gives him mysterious powers, which he uses to rescue people from the ravages of war and poverty, as he brings peace and prosperity to his country by becoming … The President. Victor the Child Soldier is set to be published in 2014, Other than being a budding author, Jide is also aspiring to become a large scale software designer, with a bias for mobile devices.     By: Olusola Agbaje
