Abisola Akinsete

Abe Akinsete was born and raised on the Southern coast of Nigeria where he spent most of his time reading encyclopedias, watching crime reenactment TV shows, and not talking to anyone his own age. He studied Linguistics and Film as an undergrad at Boston University. The former was because of a book he read about lexicographers (the folks who write dictionaries), and the latter because he was a dozen or so credits short of graduating.Since graduating from BU’s film program, he’s written two features and several pilots. Two of these had modest success in initiative programs, making the second round and longlist of the Black Boy/Black Girl Writes Mentorship Initiative and the Blacklist x GM Writer Driven Shorts Initiative respectively.
