Adeola Fayehun          

Nigerian Journalist & Political Satirist

Adeola Fayehun is a Nigerian journalist who specializes in discussing current geopolitical, social and economic issues that affect the daily lives of Africans living on the continent. She is well known for a controversial 2015 on-street interview where she and fellow Sahara TV journalist Omoyele Sowore asked Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe about when he would be stepping down from office. In 2013, she interviewed former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan on the streets of New York, asking him what he was doing about the then on-going Boko Haram insurgency.

In 2011, Fayehun began the news satire program, "Keeping It Real with Adeola!" on SaharaTV. The show was 30 minutes long and features Fayehun reporting, often in character, on various African news events. The focus of the show was on reporting political issues pertinent to Africa and of interest to the African diaspora community. For the first 150+ episodes created over a period of three years, Fayehun was the producer, writer, and editor of the show.

In November of 2017, Fayehun left SaharaTV to work as an independent creator, publishing new content on her YouTube channel about African politics in a continuation of her weekly satire show "Keeping It Real with Adeola!"
