Author Biography

Humanitarian, creative writer and data integration specialist, Adeleke Adefioye has always shown a genuine interest in human welfare. He is passionate about humanity, justice, equity and fairness. As a fresh college graduate serving his home country Nigeria, he won a Commendation Award as the most responsible and the most constructive corps member as well as a Merit Award as the most outstanding corps member.
Shortly after college, he started his first career as a broadcaster with a state-owned television station where he worked as a Talk Show Host, Studio Continuity Announcer and a Newscaster. He later moved to the print media having discovered that he couldn’t suppress his instinctive aptitude for writing. As a journalist, he wrote extensively on politics, information technology, business and energy (power/oil and gas).
However, he changed career having successfully completed an MBA degree upon relocation to the United States of America. As an astute team player, he won the maiden edition of a firm-wide Slayer Award at the financial firm he currently works for.
In 2020, Ade, as he is fondly called by friends and colleagues, was nominated to The National Society of Leadership and Success by the University of Phoenix.

Racism: A Disease of The Mind by Adeleke Adefioye speaks about the existence of racism and tribalism everywhere and conveys the message that we are all one despite the differences in color. He speaks about how racism exists in the United States as there are people of different races living there and how in a country like Nigeria tribalism exists. The memoir speaks about the negative effects of racism and tribalism and why it does not make any sense at all. Racism has torn the world apart and has led to a lot of hate, unrest, and brutality everywhere. This book promotes love, restores global peace, and unites citizens all over the world irrespective of their color.

Adeleke Adefioye tackles a relevant topic with expertise and throws light on the human angle associated with the subject. He shows how the journey of racism begins with just one step; that is of one's mental state. He shares personal stories and experiences with readers that make it easy for them to connect with what he is trying to convey and understand the gravity of the situation. Racism cannot be eradicated entirely but the book will encourage all readers to take their time and think deeply about the roots of racism so the world can be cured of its negativity. Racism: A Disease of The Mind is a well-written book that will make readers reflect on their thinking when it comes to racism and slavery, and start judging people based on their character rather than their race.
