Meet the Team

We are a group of creatives who thought that a blog would be a creative and different way to discuss topics that make sense. We look forward to our readers getting to know and relate with us via our posts, podcasts and socials.

Hi guys, this is Ayo, the Editor-in-Chief of the RTB. I am an Economics graduate from Loughborough University.
My dream is for The RealTalk Blog and Podcast to become outlets for creatives who need a platform to share their views and to educate others. If this is you, please feel free to get in touch so we can make things happen!

Hello, my name is Drew and I am a Journalism graduate from the University of Westminster.
The RTB is a great place to get content out that can help people change their mindset, get motivated and learn about what’s going on in the world that might be underground.
I am a Canva wiz and specialise in lifestyle journalism, but dive into other journalistic beats when I get the chance.

Hey! I’m Manuela, I’m a graduate in Media and International Development from the University of East Anglia.
I find RTB to be a great space for inspiration and knowledge.
I write about current affairs, culture, race and anything else that needs to be written. Enjoy this space!

Hi all I’m Joseph, Ghanaian, friends call me TN. Generally accepted as the funniest in the group. I’m an athlete and Mathematics with Economics graduate. I see this blog as an opportunity to share my experience and wisdom (if that’s what you want to call it, lol) on this game called life, and as a platform to say what’s on my mind – quite often controversial. Hopefully, I’m successful in stimulating your minds. Enjoy the read!

Meanwhile, get at my socials –

What’s up everyone, I go by the name PK. I’m a Business, Economics and Finance graduate.
In life, being yourself is key. With me, I tend to create quite a mess when life throws me lemons. But it’s how you use those lemons to create something great that really defines your character.
I’m excited to share my experiences with you guys and I hope I can encourage and inspire.
