The Columnist Ng promises to profile young Nigerians doing remarkable things in various fields every week.
This week, we take look at Dr Kayode O. Sinmidele Valentine, consultant Paediatrician and Neonatologist who has become an author worthy of celebrating.
Reading the works of his brilliant author, one would never know that he is in the field of medicine without being told. His command of English puts him up there with the best in the business.
Dr Kayode, O. Sinmidele Valentine is an MBBS graduate of LAUTECH Ogbomosho. An intrepid and award – winning Child Specialist, a persistent medical educator and a consistent social media celebrated Author, from the most populous country in Africa: Nigeria where talents send talents on errands; Dr Kayode hails from the Southwestern Nigeria in Ondo State precisely.
He is primarily a consultant Paediatrician and Neonatologist whose special interest in creative writings took him to the world of literature in the genre of the fictional and non – fictional terminologies.
Words come to Sinmidele like magic and stories find him like Miracles.
It was medicine and its tropical challenges that unleashed the writing in him.
Retrospectively, Dr Kayode has been writing many articles on socio – political issues, rejoinders and medically educating series for over a decade now, albeit, on his social media handles. It was recently that he self – published three of his works in one Year namely:
Pearls and Pebbles; The Void and Ejire Aladuke. Pearls and Pebbles was his first published work as a creative writer; a book of many socio -political and medico – scientific stories. This was followed back to back by the Void: a creative non – fictional story of hope. Both of these books had the realities of today’s world speaking to the readers in the many anonymous parts of the stories with so much passion laced with entertainment.
However, his latest 99.9% fictional debut: Ejire Aladuke showed the Author’s excitingly creative fictional style with many twists and emotionally cum culturally compelling aesthetics!
Dr Kayode is happily married to Adebola Ayinke and is a super Dad to his children both biological and non – biological.
