As an Author
Akin’s writing has been described as “insightful and thought provoking” by many. Writing was not a passion Akin had prior to 2009. Akin’s writing started in obedience to an instruction from God to “write the vision in a book” referring to a vision God have given him on the 31st of December 2008. God spoke to him saying, “The signs that follow the teaching of the Word will follow the reading of your books” and God has been faithful in confirming His word through the many testimonies that accompany the reading of Akin’s books.
Akin, a very prolific writer and inspirational speaker, is the co-founder of the Syncterface Group (a technology, media and publishing company) and since 2009 has written several books which include “The Knowledge of the Hebrew Boys,” “Piercing the Spirit of the Sadducees” and “Understanding the Voice of God.” His writings are eye-opening, paradigm changing and insightful.
Through SyncterfaceMedia, Akin seeks to fulfil a mission to publish God-inspired literature that opens the heart of the reader to the truth of God’s word, with signs and wonders following.
As a Teacher
Akin has a rich heritage of Christianity with both Grandparents, Canon Akinyemi and Bishop Falope (First Anglican Bishop of Ilesa Diocese), being clergy men with the Anglican Communion in Nigeria. This heritage continued through his Father, Venerable Akinwunmi Akinyemi, former Provost General of the Jos Anglican Diocese and his brother, Dr Wale Akinyemi, who pastored one of the fastest growing churches in Nairobi, Kenya.
Akin gave his life during a Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International (FGBMFI) meeting in Ilesa, Osun State in Nigeria. His initial spiritual development came through the Sword of the Spirit Ministries (which he attended while going through Secondary School education at Loyola College Ibadan) and a short stint at Scripture Pasture Christian Centre.
Akin’s teaching gift became apparent during the teaching sessions with the Youth Forum (the youth group at Bola Memorial Anglican Church, Lagos where his Father was a priest). It was here that Akin’s insightful style of teaching was honed, the same style which has found its way into his writing. Akin helped to develop teaching notes for the spiritual development of the youth and ministered at many Youth Conferences and Crusades that were organised by the Youth Forum, where God confirmed the teaching of the Word with demonstrations of the Spirit and signs. Testimonies of supernatural healings through the teaching of the Word of God were recorded in these meetings.
After moving to Lagos to study Computer Science at the Yaba College of Technology, Akin attended Covenant Christian Centre before moving to the United Kingdom where He attended Jesus House, a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. At Jesus House, Akin joined the teaching department where he was awarded the “Teacher of the Year” award in 2008.
Akin is currently a teacher at Covenant Christian Centre UK.

On completion of his course in Computer Science in 1998, Akin did his National Youth Service program with Unilever Nigeria Plc where he was selected to join a team of top managers who were tasked with re-engineering the business processes to make the business more efficient and improve productivity of the non-production staff.

While at Unilever, Akin attended many Leadership Development programs outside Nigeria to further hone his leadership qualities. Akin left Unilever as a well-respected manager within the Factory Planning Section of the Logistics Department.
