Leke Akinrowo gave his life to Christ way back in his university days at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, where he studied and obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Dramatic Arts in 1989.
His earliest worldview was shaped by the countless dog and tortoise tales by moonlight which he was regaled with as a little boy. From his early secondary school days, he came across deeper intellectual influences in the form of war stories and great military conquests from history books and war movies, and began to incline towards arts and the humanities, which eventually saw him embarking on his course of study.
As he got introduced to the great philosophies and movements in Europe and Africa, from Plato, Socrates and Aristotle, to Descartes, Freud, Awolowo, Soyinka and Mandela, his world view took a definite slant towards free-thinking humanism; until his divine arrest in the twilight of the 1980s.
His interests today still bear scant reference to his early influences. He considers the Book of Ecclesiastes the deepest of all Bible Books, which only a critical thinker can discern. He argues that a Christian has a role to play in secular politics, and should be able to shine the light and be above board in such a sordid affair as angling for political power. He is of the opinion that the seemingly everlasting fight between Jews and Arabs has long been resolved on the Cross by Christ, and that what we see going on in the Middle East today is a stage-managed conflict fanned by proponents of the New World Order who would use the situation to deceive the world into World War III and attempt to ease the world into the new order.
Leke is married with children.
