Ifueko Fex Ogbomo

Ifueko Fex Ogbomo is a wordsmith who loves great stories and is absolutely in love with the greatest storyteller of all time: Jesus Christ.

A celebrated poet and performing artist, she often goes by her alias “Lady InspiroLogos” and is best known for writing and performing custom content for themed events. The first female two-time winner of the Abuja Literary Society’s poetry slam championship, her inspiring, original artistry led her to become a two-time guest artist at the World Economic Forum on Africa (2013, 2014), and a three-time guest poet at the Nigerian Economic Summit (2012, 2013, 2014). Giving voice to victims of both natural disasters and terrorism earned her presidential commendation from Nigeria’s former president Goodluck E. Jonathan (2012). She may have stood before world leaders, but her favorite audiences remain those filled with bright-eyed, eager-minded innocents.

A classically-trained vocalist, Ifueko graduated summa cum laude, with a BA Honors (music, with a minor in computer science) from Texas Lutheran University (2003). While in college, she won the Pacesetter Award for Academic Excellence, joined the Alpha Chi National Honor Society, was a senator in the student government association, and let her inner thespian out as one of a five-woman cast of the play, Waiting For Godot. Much to her delight, she was invited back to her alma mater as the inaugural speaker of the TLU Cullinane Social Entrepreneurship series (2016).

A Nigerian immigrant, Ifueko received the prestigious classification of “Alien of Extraordinary Ability in the Arts” by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in 2017 and was awarded permanent US residency the same year. She looks forward to becoming a US citizen in the near future.

A speaker, activist, and author, Ifueko is passionate about using storytelling to share the gospel (especially with children), and to create awareness on the most common genetic disorder: sickle cell anemia. Yellow Eyes Gone White!, her first book, is a faith-inspiring memoir that details her own tumultuous, but victorious battle with the disease.

Although multilingual, Ifueko thinks, writes, and dreams in her first language: English. The last of three children born to a military father and a globetrotting, fashion-designer mother, Ifueko has visited four continents and known many “homes.” She currently shuttles between her dual cities of residence: Los Angeles, California, and Lagos, Nigeria. INFJ on the Myers-Briggs scale, she enjoys creative expression, the arts, African fashion, healthy dining, and exotic destinations, but nothing beats a quiet day flying through the pages of a Christian romance (while snacking on plantain chips).

Whether through stories, sonnets, or songs, Ifueko’s lifelong mission is “to inspire, with words.
