Wednesday

WCW: SCRIPTWRITER, DAMI ELEBE

Hey ladies and gentlemen, it's another beautiful Wednesday, isn't it?

Today we are crushing on the amazing Dami Elebe. She's an OAP at Beat FM and a scriptwriter-She writes renowned Ndani TV series: 'Skinny Girl in Transit' (I'm such a huge fan by the way)  and 'Rumour has it'. I had a chat with her to pick her brain a little. Enjoy !




Hi Dami!

1) You are a radio personality at Beat FM; how did radio begin for you?

DAMI: While I was in school, we had this class "Internship II" where we had to go for media excursions to different types of media houses. I took one of my own and stopped at a radio station. To see how relaxed they were, doing the one thing they love was amazing. You just needed your voice and wit as a skill. So when I came back to Nigeria, that was what I wanted to do and three months in, I got the job. The rest is history.

2) You’re also an amazing scriptwriter; something you’ll love to write about but haven’t yet done is?
DAMI: Wow. I don't think I'll be able to answer this question and remain here. There are so many things I'd love to write about. For now, let me pick a big budget, definitely blockbuster superhero movie.

3) What is your routine like whenever you have a writing project?
DAMI: It really depends on how I feel and a flow. My routine is to not have a routine you cannot change depending on the mood. I just have to get into the head space and we move.





4) How do you keep yourself constantly inspired?
DAMI: Watching TV. I've also noticed that when I go out, I observe people a lot hoping for some weird kind of drama I can use.

5) If you could say something to your '20-year old' and '50-year old' self respectively, you'd say?
DAMI: To my 20 year old self, get up and be responsible.
To my 50 year old self, you only live once... Do it Jare!

6) Who’s your favourite (female) scriptwriter and why?
DAMI: I don't have one. It truly varies from moment to moment. At this moment, myself.

7) What’s on your mind this Wednesday?
DAMI: I have a deadline I need to meet but I'm here instead. I must love you.

LOL. That's it guys!
Stay inspired,
Anjola
