Erinola Daranijo's writing delves deep into the complexities of human emotion, love, loss, and grief while celebrating African culture's beauty and diversity. He draws inspiration from literary giants such as Chinua Achebe and Ben Okri and from his own experiences growing up in Nigeria.
As a short story writer, he enjoys writing stories that revolve around the lives of everyday people, while his poetry focuses on more abstract, introspective themes.

Currently, he is working on his debut novel, "Bicycle," a captivating tale of crime and poverty set against the backdrop of modern-day Africa, and his debut poetry collection, "The Useless Idiosyncrasies of Man," a lyrical and almost cynical exploration of the human psyche.
