About David Hundeyin

I am a writer, investigative journalist and broadcaster whose work has appeared on CNN, The Africa Report, Al Jazeera and The Washington Post. My work as a satirist on 'The Other News,' Nigeria's answer to The Daily Show has featured in the New Yorker Magazine and in the Netflix documentary 'Larry Charles' Dangerous World of Comedy.' 

In 2018, I was nominated by the US State Department for the 2019 Edward Murrow program for journalists under the International Visitors Leadership Program (IVLP).


In February 2021, I won the People Journalism Prize for Africa 2020 for my work unraveling predatory legislation that was being rushed through Nigeria's House of Representatives.


In June 2021, I was selected as Africa's only representative on a list of 12 writers and journalists from around the world chosen to take part in Substack's inaugural $1 million Substack Local program.


In December, I was named the GRC (Governance Risk Compliance) Anti FinCrime Reporter Of The Year at Nigeria's GRC Awards. Most recently in March 2022, my OSINT investigation "Who Killed Hiny Umoren?" made the global shortlist at the 2022 Sigma Awards for data journalism.


I irritate powerful people for a living, so I currently live in exile under asylum protection where I can be found tweeting my uncut and uncensored thoughts from the handle @DavidHundeyin.
