Working name of Nigerian academic and author E Babatunde Omobowale (?   -    ), active in both capacities from about 1989. After an initial collection, The Eagle Must Fly: A Collection of Ten Short Stories (coll 1992), he is of sf interest for at least one novella assembled in The Melting Pot: A Collection of Four Stories (coll 1993), "The Ancestor's Visit", a First Contact tale involving Yoruba villagers and Aliens who have arrived from space. Further stories of some interest appear in Seasons of Rage: Fiction (coll 1997). Most of his later work has focused on the complexly interwoven cultures of post-colonial Nigeria. [JC]
