Folasayo Dele-Ogunrinde

Folasayo Dele-Ogunrinde succumbed to stomach cancer in 2013. Her life revolved around her creative endeavors: writing, performing spoken word to afro-beat folk music, telling stories visually either as a mixed media artist or as a filmmaker. She trained formally as a Scientist, earning a graduate degree, but found the flirtatious tango with her muse more appealing. This calling led to her quitting her job with a major pharmaceutical company to follow her passion. An award-winning published author ('The Woman With a Past' and 'Conversations With The Soul at 3:00AM'), her other interests were reading, interior design, traveling, creative cooking, medicine and the pursuit of a healthy holistic lifestyle. She also enjoyed savoring the beauty of other cultures through their cuisine, music and art. She was a long-time friend of Africanwriter.com
