Kelechi Okafor is a Nigerian-born, London-based lover of words—whether that’s crafting works of fiction, articles, stageplays or screenplays; from directing others on stage to expressing her thoughts on society one podcast episode at a time alongside esteemed interview guests on her award-winning podcast Say Your Mind. The podcast focusses on globally relevant conversations and events, framed through a lens of understanding that is firmly anti- colonial, white-supremacy and heteropatriarchy. It serves both as a personal exploration, and as a way to build a community that is challenged to think critically.
Known online as @Kelechnekoff, Kelechi also affectionately known as “just a Baby Girl” by her followers, listeners and community. Her path has been guided by flames left by Toni Morrison, bell hooks, Audre Lorde, Chika Unigwe, Austin Channing Brown, Ọṣun, and so many more voices from the past and present. Edge of Here is her debut story collection.
