Victoria Olajide founded TVOTRIBE in July 2019, a Pan-African community building culturally aware creatives in Africa and in the Diaspora. Olajide started this venture on her own and has since expanded her team and community to more than a thousand creatives all from diverse spaces with varying interests. She says “I believe that the most important aspect of sharing diverse stories is identifying how individual stories connect with others, and how this creative rhyming unites humanity.”

Five Badass African Poetess You Should Know.
Victoria Olajide is a Nigerian Poet and Visual storyteller. Her works range from soul poetry, Afrocentrism and ekphrastic poetry. In 2017,
she released Cri De Coeur —COLLECTION, a poetry collection created to travel down passion to release a poetic outcry. Her art explores soul poetry, cultural storytelling and womanhood.

On today’s episode, I sit down with Victoria Olajide, a literary gourmet, professional writer and editor. We talk about the possibility of consistency being a myth, what to do when you are tired and habits you can stack up. Victoria shared her experience building her tribe (https://tvotribe.com/) and the relationship between consistency and productivity.
The interview took place in Yusuff’s studio, a mash-up of creative energy and genius. Spending hours there daily would make anyone work something up beautiful. The studio is located in Yaba, Lagos State, Nigeria.

Beyond the shores of grief and a strange call for freedom. We have been made to believe that we arose from a certain level of bondage into free hands upon the struggle and realization of an independent nation.
That we as a nation, now possess a thinking box, to drive the wheels of our nation in the right direction and build our own system, strengthen our communities, live as children (bold & free) once again.
