Emmanuel Okonkwo began writing from his secondary school days after being mesmerized by the magic touch of Literature. He won several awards in secondary school and was popularly called ‘The Next Wole Soyinka’.

This fine writer got the attention of several international bodies like the IJR and was recruited while at the University to write for some of the world’s best marketing agencies, magazines and writing platforms. He did a lot of ghost writing for Forbes, Bella-Naija, Tekedia, Quora, etc while his name crippled into oblivion, but not for long.  Soon he advanced to R-Squared one of the 50-world-leading marketers, and worked shortly for Rareiio a leading Australian marketing agency.

He writes strategically for SEO and readers engagement with a high lead conversion rate. He writes for business related subjects, technology, lifestyle and food, critiques, and academics.
