Meet Oyin Clegg

Over the last three months, every monday, you have enjoyed the unfolding story of Oyin Clegg, and the question has raged, fact or fiction? Many have wondered why the images are animations.

Today is my birthday, and I decided to post a special birthday episode of Finding Hubby and finally put a real picture of me here.

My name is Tunde Leye, I’m a writer and I’m male (yes *smiles*). I’m currently working on finishing my first complete novel called Golden Sands, and y’all will be the first to know. Until then, keep enjoying the (hopefully) thrilling Finding Hubby every Monday.

You can follow me on twitter @tundeleye to get live updates on Finding Hubby and Golden Sands. And hope you’ll be at the launch of Golden Sands.

And, let’s trend #OyinClegg on twitter , okay.

  34. Happy birthday Tunde! Even though this is coming late(I actually rushed to read d sequel yesterday and forgot to say happy baiday! X_X ). May your muse be continually replenished! And may your ink never dry!
    Ok, for those that are surprised he is male, what happened to the curiosity in our generation? Tell me I’m not the only one that actually researched him after the first read? Info about him is available all over the net! Besides its very obvious that when creating fiction that’s this implicating, u have to make all effort, if u care that is, to make sure your readers don’t ascribe attributes of the lead character to u, hence it was only wise that as a guy, he wd chronicle the escapades of Oyin, a lady.

  35. Hapi bday Mr tunde, u r reali creative, kip up d good wrk…ill b prt of d pple to buy ur golden sands book….I hp its as interestin as dis 1, do consider makin a tv series of dis sef, it’ll b crazy

  40. OMG!!! Who would have thought you were a guy. well that’s d talent of bin a writer. Nice job. But if you ask me, I would lobe for finding hubby to bcom a Nigerian drama. The ratings would b off the chain.

  43. Happy birthday in arrears! My phone has been acting up so I just got the chance to read this episodem guess they’ve said it all, our Miss Oyin turns out to be a Mr Tunde. Anyway finding hubby has thought us that everything is not always what they seem. Hope to read more of ur works.

  50. Hey.
    Seriously? U are a guy? Cute. But am impressed with ur imaginations..reminds me of my days reading ‘HINTS’ magazine.
    Let’s know when ur book is out.
    Remain blessed.

  51. Why can’t a guy come up with something as brilliant as what Tunde has written. For you to think he is gay is going into his personal life. He might just have a natural talent and a craving for stories like this. I have enjoyed every bit of his stories and I llok forward to reading his blog every monday. Happy belated birthday Tunde. If we were abroad a question of him been gay or not would arise as long as he is good at what he does. Congratulations tunde I can already see you winning awards 🙂

  52. I have been α faithful reader Of this blog even though i have chosen not 2 post any comment. I have also known from the first day that it’s all fiction but i still read it like it’s real because its α powerful piece. Keep up the gud work. The Lord will continue to strengthen you. I’ve read today’s post since morning but i have been to busy to post α birthday message even though your picture has adorned M̶̲̥̅γ̲̣̣̥ bbm page since morning. Happy birthday to you. You will not fail, you will not fall, you will not falter and you will not make irreversible mistakes. Tunde, this next one year will be the best you have ever lived and everything that you have pursued over the years without meeting will pursue,locate and dwell with you. Happy birthday to you. Where’s the party venue?Please i’♍ sorry it’s coming late and please i would appreciate this message being published as anonymous

  53. Tunde, u r simply excellent! Dis Oyin Clegg biz has been one reason to look forward to mondays. Thanks.
    More creative juices to ur mind. Welldone!
    Have a super-duper birthday!

    P.s: don’t mind dem o: gay koo, gay ni…ish!

  54. Thank God its not true, I love reading fiction, so pls invite me when u want 2 launch the book. Happy birthday to do.

  55. He doesn’t have to be gay to write so well. Otherwise we should as well say that Ann Rice must be a vanpire to be able to write about it so well. And please dont call me gay cos i hate them so much

  56. You are such a great writter. My o my, couldn’t get my eyes off oyin’s story. Can I make it a tv script?

  57. Happy Birthday τδ u̶̲̥̅̊

  58. Guy, U r too much. U just rekindled d reading fire in me, will like 2 have more of ur books…….I just love this book, epistle or whatever-finding hubby. More ink to your pen bro

  59. TundeLeye,ur a good writer….i got all my friends transfixed on Oyinclegg. Dat ur a dude even makes it impresive…keep it up. Am sure ur book wld be awesomee!

  60. People people people… don’t be mean, the fact that he’s a man writing this kind of story does not mean that he’s gay… it simply means he’s a very good writer. Gender does not matter, if he can whip up a good story, he can proudly take credit for it, no matter his gender… DON”T BE SO NEGATIVE… Good job Tunde, you have great years ahead of you 🙂

  61. Happy birthday in arrears Tunde,good to c d face behind dis hilariously descriptive stories. Kip it up.

    I fink dere is an episode b4 dis dt wasn’t publishd, whr the real Oyin clegg was tired of life/ or wanted Yomi by all means, so she went for ‘surgery’ and decided to come up with a new identity- TUNDE LEYE. So technically he/she aint gay *wink

  70. Thumbs up!! U r such a creative writer! Though I must confess dat d spark for Oyin Clegg’s story kinda died d moment I found out u were actuali a GUY!!!! Bt I salute ur writing prowess !

  71. just tarted reading this morning, my friend sent me d link yesterday night…absolutely wonderful, u r extremely creative nd talented

  72. Your story has lost its intrigue now you’v revealed your true identity. You just sucked the life out of a very interesting piece by talkin about yourself in the middle of it. U no try at all….mscheeeew

  73. Wow xo much in love with dis,could not wait to get to the end……..Just too interesting…… likey & need to get to the end

  74. Wow, am so thrilled n beyond inspired.

    Love ya.

  75. Seriously I tot u are a lady not knowing u are such a handsome guy,happy birthday to u and av fun.ur story was quiet interesting and I suspect u are a gay cos aw do u com about oyin clegg.

  76. Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!! Love your story and hope for more!!!!! It takes someone with wide imagination to write it!!!!! U should have kept your identity and left US guessing about the authenticity of the characterS!!!!!!!anyways am in LOVE with Finding hubby!!!!!!!! Have a splendid day!!!!! God bless!!!!!!

  77. HBD Tunde Leye,wishing u many more good and marvelous years, stories and awards to come. May u be lifted beyond ur imaginations. Knowing now dat u r a guy tells me more dat u a good writer.

  82. Wow, that was some well written episodes, and I was even more suprised to find that you are a guy. It’s gud to read something on the romantic side (other might say other wise) from a male point of view, it’s very rational and realistic.

  83. I so love this story didnt want to end,im so addicted to reading ur stories nice one Tunde (u write very imaginative stories too well for a male writer shaa)

  84. Pschew, ran out of battery power. BUT you know, this story is like fact meets fiction. Its what’s actually happening!!!

  86. OMG! I cnt believe a guy wrote dis… Dis is mind blowing.” FINDING HUBBY” is a classic. I’m nt a fan of novels or anything dat hs to wit reading cos I cnt seat 4 long 2 read a long story bt 2 my surprise FINDING HUBBY captured my heart with its interesting nd captivating content. Please keep it up. I’m looking forward to more of this from you. God bless you beyond measures

  87. I dnt get dis guy? How do u knw exactly how girls talk, how we react to stuffs…eevery friggin’ thing….mehn!! I dey suspect u ooo…u shuldnt hav told us abeg!
