About our: G.O.H: Dami Àjàyí (born 1986) is a Nigerian poet, medical doctor, essayist and music critic. He co-founded Saraba Magazine in 2008; the author of three collections of poetry, he fuses being a writer into his busy schedule as a psychiatrist. Known as Jolly Papa (JP for short) by his friends—a sobriquet he took from a popular highlife song by Rex Lawson—the poet cum doctor cum music critic makes seamless transitions between these orbits around which his life rotates. While he was an undergraduate at Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, he co-founded Saraba Magazine. He also cofounded media outlets The Lagos Review and YabaLeft Review, with writers Toni Kan and Tunji Olalere respectively.
