The Enigmatic: Olumide Bisiriyu is a lover of creativity. Often times he has been described by close allies as a melancholy who always wants to drive away from the status quo. Gentle and easy going, you would take him for someone who could not “deliver” until you place him in that position where he could show what he has inside of him. This personality of doing things he wasn’t expected to be able to do was what earned him the name: Enigmatic.
Once a dancer but presently more of a Performance Poet/Actor, Olumide is a multi-gifted person who has taken time to study himself and know his strongest skills are writing and acting. He also sings, counsels, and consults for people who want to utilize/develop their talents. He started utilizing his gifts when he was about six years old; then he would gather his peers to tell them stories. His focus is to inspire as many lives as possible in a positive way with his gifts.
So far he has written over a thousand poems, lost count on his fiction/stories, recorded a 7-track music album (from his over 65 written songs) that gained few airplays on Nigerian radio stations, and published a book titled ‘Recovered Generation’. Among other feats, he was:
