About

With more than 30 years experience as a scriptwriter and producer, Biola has written more than 200 stories for both radio and television. She is an alumnus of the Dramatic Arts department Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife, Nigeria. She is a professionally trained newscaster; she went independent some 23 years ago. Biola got involved in intervention drama to help change attitudes towards behavioral change and so created a series for the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) on teenage reproductive health, 'I NEED TO KNOW' It was so successful that the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) got involved and had it adapted into radio as well as in two of the major languages. It was shown on national, state and private television and radio in the country as well as on a satellite television. Biola has always been interested in bringing social issues to public attention using drama and has thus written for USAID on maternal health, Democracy and Governance, Womens issues, and HIV/AIDS. She was given a distinguished alumni award from the Dramatic Arts Department of her alma mater O.A.U Ife, in recognition of her contributions to the growth of the legacy of Dramatic Art.
