Adeshina Olusanya

Adeshina Olusanya is a Nigerian poet and an active member of Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA).

Born at Ebutte-metta Lagos, Nigeria, Olusanya is a professional accountant and manager, but his greatest passion has been for Literature (poetry in particular).
He underwent and still undergoes studies in English and Greek Literature: a fact reflected in references and sensitivity to Greek heroes, culture, environment and sentiments in his works. He has published two main (own) anthologies to date, whilst his poems and reviews have appeared in anthologies such as those published by International Library of Poetry, USA,, U.K., Animal Antics Collections ( , BBC Collective, U.K., Lagos State Polytechnic Departmental Journals, "Sound Tracks" (ILP) (Voice Recordings) Audio CD's, USA, amongst others.
Olusanya's poetical works often delve into social, political, economic and entertainment issues that touch the heart, sensitive subjects that tug at man's heartstrings. His poetry sings, inquires and informs.
In addition, his interest in the studies of Japanese poetry such as the poetical works of Matsuo Basho and Kyakuchi, has landed him in publishing volumes of standard haiku poetry. Olusanya has written over seventy haiku poems (some 41 of which have been published so far in his two books, as a separate section).
Olusanya has brought much to his writing, so much so that, at a time, he left his very lucrative job at the Polytechnic, Lagos State, Nigeria for his occasionally radical, critical writings.
He is presently working as an Accounts subject teacher and class teacher in a secondary school in Lagos, Nigeria.
Adeshina Olusanya had his studies at Saint Finbarr's College, Akoka, Yaba, Lagos State Polytechnic,Isolo, Federal University of Technology, Owerri (in Nigeria).
