Author, motivational speaker, success coach, entrepreneur, artist, trained and full time working engineer, and blogger, Okechukwu Ofili is a man of many interests turned into successful careers. His catchphrase, “addicted to the truth, allergic to bullshit” perfectly encapsulates the totality of his person as an inspiring individual not just for what he has done but for who he is.
As an author, his three unconventional books – How Intelligence Kills, How Laziness Saved My Life and How Stupidity Saved My Life – have inspired many to change their outlook on life, while his fourth and most recent book, a children’s book titled, Afro: the girl with magical hair, released late last year, is an inspiring African story that challenges the stereotypical western literature African children have been exposed to in the past.
As a motivational speaker and success coach, Ofili speaks frequently on how to think outside the box and beat the status quo and expectations of intelligence and success with the aim to get many to live more fulfilling and effective lives.
As an entrepreneur, Ofili is the founder of Okada Books, a digital publishing platform that allows writers connect with readers from all over with the aim to make access to books easier.
But beyond his art, entrepreneurship and writing, Ofili is inspiring because of his passion for helping people, whether it is children from low income families or families in low income communities. From raising funds for school children to return to school, to collecting donations to renovate a block of classrooms at a low cost school, Ofili does not just think of the change he wants to see in the world, he goes out of his way to effect it.
